Contemplative Walk – Mt Coot-tha QLD

Saturday, 17 July @ 7:00 am - 11:00 am

A Contemplative Walk to Awaken Awe

This is an opportunity for you to spend some reflective time walking in silence within Nature.  The walk is a contemplative experience allowing time to stop take in the beauty of Creation and to become aware of God speaking to you through Nature.

As we walk gently along the paths of Mt Coot –tha we recall that in the Yugara language, ‘Ku ta’ means honey. Mt Coot –tha, or the ‘honey mountain’ was where the Aboriginal peoples collected the sugar bag or native bee honey.

As we tread the paths contemplatively we can savour the sweetness of being present in God’s wonderful creation. This nourishes our body and soul and brings us to a place of simple awe and peace.

We will gather at the Faber Centre at 7am for a coffee and short reflection before setting out.

Wear good walking shoes and bring a hat and sunscreen, water and snacks.  There will be a number of reflective breaks, so bring something light to sit on.

The walk is approximately 10km and is a grade three walk with some rough track surfaces.   A reasonable level fitness is required and be sure to wear good supportive walking shoes.
