Oneness in Luminous Presence 

Five-Day Silent Retreat 

7-11 June, 2021

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 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 Abhishiktānandaand 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.  This retreat will be taught by Dr Kerrie Hide.  

The cost of the retreat is $350.00.   We encourage registrations via deposit of $150.00 by 18th November, 2020, with final payment due 13th May, 2021. Please let us know if this cost is difficult or if you would like to offer more to assist another.

Six-Day Online Silent Retreat for Advent

6 -12 Dec 2020

Guided and Directed by Catherine Hefferan rsm and Robyn Fitzgerald

“When I know I am going to walk forever, I have time for now” says Thomas Hubl, echoing the wisdom of mystics over centuries who proclaim our eternal personhood and our timeless nature. This Advent, we invite you to come together to create a community of Silence where we will sink into the Eternal Presence that lies beneath all that is fragile, tender and hurting in our world. Here, in the ground of our heart, we participate in the eternal birthing of Christ Omega shining through each one of us and our communal heart where we will see, as Teilhard de Chardin writes, “the whole universe has become the temple of the living God….where…..everything that exists is sacred, and everything that happens is adorable”.
