An Eremos Retreat - Are there thresholds opening a way for us?
Join us at beautiful Bundeena House on the waterfront at Bundeena, for a day of quiet exploration.
Thresholds in life are like doorways where we find ourselves “in between here and there." We may see a threshold before us as a way out. Or we may look toward it as our way into a life of greater integrity that requires our embrace of different beliefs, attitudes, relationships and practices.

Each new threshold is likely to hold for us some element of suspense, and not knowing. Sometimes, at a threshold we feel hesitant and fearful.
Though we have a burning desire or urgent necessity to pass through it, we are still not there yet. We watch and wait till the way ahead becomes clear enough for take our initial step over the threshold into a new time and place in our life.
Richard Rohr calls these sacred spaces where transformation happen
"We have to allow ourselves to be drawn into sacred space, into liminality. All transformation takes place here. We have to allow ourselves to be drawn out of "business as usual" and remain patiently on the "threshold" (limen, in Latin) where we are betwixt and between the familiar and the completely unknown. There alone is our old world left behind, while we are not yet sure of the new existence."
The day will explore these questions:
+ Are there personal thresholds at which we find ourselves these days?
+ Does a new way of being in our world that we feel drawn to hold excitement for us as well as some fear?
+ What wisdom for the present have we gleaned from past threshold experiences?
+ How can we live with integrity in our present times of being at a threshold?
+ Do we sense some thresholds that all of humanity faces in common? Is all humanity at a threshold of challenge to discover and embrace our kinship with all beings in our planet, in the universe?
Join us in the beautiful bush and seaside setting of Bundeena for a day of quiet reflection shared with others.
