Heart of Creation Weekend Retreat at Gerroa

Friday, 31 May @ 7:00 pm - Sunday, 2 June @ 3:00 pm

“All around us, to right and left, in front and behind, above and below, we have only to go a little beyond the frontier of sensible appearances in order to see the divine welling up and showing through”.  Pierre Teilhard De Chardin, The Divine Milieu


A Time to be Still, Listen and Wonder… 

Take some time to nourish and revitalize yourself amidst the beauty of creation staying just steps away from Seven Mile Beach and amidst the beautiful surrounds of Gerroa. 

The ‘Heart of Creation’ Retreat will explore the Ignatian understanding of Creation which sees the Divine at the centre of all things, always giving and receiving, creating, and sustaining in every moment of all life.

Using imagery, music, story and creative expression, participants will be given time to reflect and consider this vision. This will include drawing on the work of Miriam-Rose Ungunmerr Baumann, renowned Australian Artist, tribal elder, educator and Aboriginal mystic.

During the weekend there will be time to walk on the beach, relax, sit quietly, listen, and reflect on your journey with God and share with others.

Held at the beautiful Jesuit Villa House in Gerroa, with its outstanding position and vistas.
