We want to provide a place to nourish our souls, deeply, personally & together.
Over the years we have found a lot of help from practices used for centuries, within various Christian traditions- e.g. using imagination in prayer - lectio divina as we sit 'in' the scriptures, walking a labyrinth prayerfully, as well as more recent creative practices using pencils, colour and fabric as creative ways to connect with God.
We're greatly influenced by the Celtic proverb "If you want to know the creator- create".
Our by-line is 'Be nurtured in nature', and being set within beautiful natural surrounds & views on these 100 acres is not just a beautiful place to be, it's a part of where and how we meet with God.
So, with our experience and training in Contemplative spiritual direction, as artists, pastors, in running groups and retreats, we're digging into our spiritual tool bag to provide these activities and processes that have fuelled our own spiritual life for the past few decades, especially through the last crazy year.
We want to share them with you, giving you the chance to meet with God through these exercises, to incorporate them into your spiritual routines, finding new and old ways to go deeper.
Who are these retreats for?
Those who believe there is a Divine Being to connect with,
Anyone who has a relationship with the Creator,
You may or may not use the word God,
People who follow Jesus and those that don't,
Anyone who desires deeper spiritual connection.
Your investment: $100, including morning tea.
