Oneness in Luminous Presence 

Five-day Silent Retreat, 7-11 June 2021

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. In daily teachings offered by Dr Kerrie Hide, we will focus on the oneing of the Luminous Energies of love. We will draw on a number of mystics, including Mechthild of Magdeburg, Hadewijch of Brabant, The Cloud of Unknowing, Swami Abhishiktananda and Beatrice Bruteau. Ever attentive to the stirrings of the Holy Spirit enflaming our hearts, we will draw out implications for creations evolutionary flow into Oneness in Love. 

This retreat is offered online, with meditation and teachings offered each morning between 9.30 - 11.00am. In these teachings, Kerrie explores the original mystical texts within their respective contexts, and develops ways of prayer that are an expression of this wisdom. These teachings support the mystical path to oneness in the energies of love in the Trinity in contemplation.

Guided meditations from 4.00 - 4.45 pm teach detailed ways of meditation that enhance contemplation so as to stabilise being able to see from oneness in Luminous Presence. Loving attention will be given to the breath and the body. 

Spiritual direction will be available every day. 

Cost:
The cost of this retreat is $350.00 and includes retreat resources, spiritual direction and ongoing access to recordings of daily teachings. A deposit of $150.00 is due March 19th, 2021. Final payment of $200.00 is due May 13th, 2021.

The way of meditation: Pathway to silence, stillness, simplicity...beauty

Meditation sessions Online in zoom - Monday afternoons 4.00p.m. - 4.35 p.m AEST

For experienced meditators to support your own prayer practice of sitting in stillness.

Facilitated by Judith Keller

We sit in silence for 20 minutes and open and close with sacred music. To lead in and out of our sitting together, we draw briefly from a variety of texts including Rilke’s love poems to God; the writings on silence and stillness of John Main, and of Martin Laird; the translations of the Psalms of Nan C Merrill; the Celtic blessings of John P Newell; the meditations for the restless soul of Meister Eckhart; the poetry of Mark Burrows, and of Christine Valters Paintner. Our spiritual texts and songs may also reflect the call to ecological conversion, and draw on the writings of Thomas Berry and Brian Swimme and the new story linking science and spirituality.

For more information see the attached flyer: The Way of Silence
