Turning to Wonder

A weekend retreat inviting participants into "Turning to Wonder".

Turning to Wonder

awe is the feeling of being in the presence of something vast that transcends your current understanding of the world.”
Dacher Keltner

Join us on this retreat to:

  • explore how human beings experience awe in everyday life engaging the wisdom of solitude, community, research, poetry, meditation, creativity and nature;
  • take time to be present to the ways in which wonder already inhabits our lives; and,
  • learn how to cultivate more everyday wonder in our life/work/relationships and what makes this possible.

The retreat is an intentional time to get away from your everyday cares and activities to take time to listen deeply to yourself.  Following the Courage & Renewal® Touchstones to guide our way of creating safe space for this to happen you will be invited into times of whole group reflection, individual solitude, sharing with one or several people as well as opportunities for meditation, being in nature, exploring poetry and wisdom writings, creative offerings for self expression.  Everything in this retreat is by invitation and up to you to find what works best for you at the time.

The retreat Centre is an attractive and peaceful venue surrounded by gardens with seats, water features, a labyrinth to walk, and is located opposite the beach ideal for walking or swimming.  You will have your own single room with ensuite bathroom and linen and towels are provided. The Retreat Centre will provide all the meals (breakfast, morning and afternoon teas, lunch and dinner) and can cater for the following special diets: vegetarian/vegan, gluten free, dairy free, seafood allergy. There is a buffet from which other choices can be made.
