Program
We will enter our collective space in silence, follow this with welcome and acknowledgement of country, undertake a short mindfulness exercise, and in contemplative silence read and reflect on some passages from Thomas Berry’s writings. You will be invited into a short reflective practice based on Thomas Berry’s childhood experience in a field covered with lilies that awakened him to what was real and worthwhile in his life. Those who wish can share their reflection on this in a breakout group. 

Judith and Gerard have backgrounds in religion, education and spirituality. They facilitate online meditation, reflection and participate in the Thomas Berry Contemplative Ecologists Circle of the Institute for Earth and Spirit at Iona College.

World without End

Six Day On-Line Silent Retreat for Advent

6th - 12th December 2020

Guided by Catherine Heffernan 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".

A safe, tender and sacred space will be created online via zoom for communal silent prayer and small group sharing, along with spiritual direction each day. Catherine and Robyn will offer a reflection in the evening, opening our hearts and minds to the mystical wisdom Advent awakens. The cost is $150.00 and includes spiritual direction. Please let us know if this cost is difficult or if you would like to offer more to assist another.

To register, or for any queries, you are warmly invited to contact Catherine Hefferan at chefferan@bigpond.com or Robyn Fitzgerald at robyn@conversationsoftheheart.com.au. We encourage registrations by Thurs 17 Sept, 2020.
