Conversations of the Heart
spiritual direction and companionship
A thousand miles would you run to speak with another who you knew really felt it and yet when you got there, find yourself speechless!
And yet your only joy would be to speak of it….words fruitful, and filled with fire.
– Unknown Author, Cloud of Unknowing
The Author of the Cloud of Unknowing knew of our desire for spiritual conversation and of our joy in finding such a person with whom we can speak of the Divine Beloved dwelling, awakening and shining in the Silence in the ground of our heart. Conversations of the Heart has been established by Robyn Fitzgerald to provide a contemplative space to embrace and deepen into these such beautiful conversations, through spiritual direction, retreats and spiritual companionship.

Five-day online silent retreat taught by Dr Kerrie Hide, and guided and directed by Dr Kerrie Hide, Catherine Hefferan rsm and Robyn Fitzgerald
In an atmosphere of prayerful silence, we will withdraw into the depths of our heart to create a communion consciousness in the noosphere. Together, we will continue to ponder the contemplative seeing from oneness in Luminous Presence. We will focus on the oneing of the Luminous Energies of love, drawing on a number of mystics including Mechthild of Magdeburg, Hadewijch of Brabant, The Cloud of Unknowing, Swāmī Abhishiktānanda and Beatrice Bruteau. Ever attentive to the stirrings of the Holy Spirit enflaming our hearts, we will draw out implications for creation’s evolutionary flow into Oneness in Love.
