Autumn Retreat

AUTUMN 2020: Friday to Sunday
DATE: April 17th – 19th
TIME: Friday 1.30pm ~ Sunday 2.30pm
THEME:
In this World but Not of This World – the art of combining loving detachment and service.
COST:
$415   (Deposit: $100)


Our Friend says: Loving detachment allows you to observe what you have in your mind, to observe your beliefs and thoughts and judgments about yourself and about the world, and to gently and gracefully
and lovingly detach from them.

At a time when humanity seems to be increasingly unconscious of our impact on each other and this Planet and the world we share, it is tempting to shut down in despair. We need to find a way to remain sensitive and involved, open-hearted and responsive – but not become emotionally destroyed in the process. The art of loving detachment is essential if we are to stay balanced and empowered to be of service in this world.

Our Friend will guide us in how to navigate our way through this world of contrast and in understanding how to maintain peace of mind and heart, and how to fulfil our highest purpose in being here on earth – no matter what the circumstances around us.
