Mid-winter Contemplative Retreat in the Hokianga

Jul. 12 - 14, 2019, 5:00pm — 2:00pm

Add this to my Calendar

A weekend to share silence, meditation and other contemplative practices such as lectio divina, chant and mindful work will be offered in addition to the Prayer of the Church which is prayed twice daily by the resident community of St Isaac’s.  A recorded teaching by James Finley on Thomas Merton’s Path to the Palace of Nowhere will also be offered. Whilst there will be a clear structure to this retreat, participants will have freedom to choose their level of involvement. 

There is accommodation for six people on-site and more off-site as needed.  Participants are also welcome to attend part of the retreat (Saturday only) - please contact us to discuss your preferences, so we can ensure the retreat flows with minimum disruption.
