Introduction to Silence Retreat

Weekend retreat from 29th to 31st March 2019

in Ballina, NSW.

Using the gifts of silence and solitude,

along with sessions of art, talks,

holy laziness and group work,

this retreat offers a gentle introduction to silence.

All sessions are invitational and if Creator Spirit moves you in a different direction you are encouraged to enter that flow.

Shape of the retreat

The retreat is held at Ballina Beach Village, 440 South Ballina Beach Road, South Ballina 2478

There are three addresses (Friday evening, Saturday morning and Saturday afternoon).  You will have plenty of time to reflect on these in prayer, silence, walking, writing, drawing etc. 

Each day is encircled by prayer. On Friday night we end with Compline. On Saturday we begin with Morning Prayer and end with a Taizé style healing service. On Sunday we begin with Morning Prayer and end with Eucharist.

The rest of the day is for Prayer, Resting, Walking, Creating and being with God
