Mystical Heart: Spiritual Direction in the Light of Contemplation

15-16 August, 2022

Santa Casa Retreat Centre, Queenscliff and Online

This year, this mystic heart formation offering for spiritual directors and those interested in contemplation, assists participants to enter into the silent ground of their heart, and access and integrate the wisdom of the spiritual senses, to bodily knowing.  From this ground of being centered in divine Love and living in the flow of Trinitarian joy, we will be present to personal, ancestral and collective trauma that is arising at this time in our evolutionary oneing into God.

This course will be offered online as an intensive over two days.  Each day will consist of: 

- three teaching sessions of 90 minutes with a focus on meditation and deepening practices

- morning, afternoon and evening guided meditation developing and practicing ways of prayer that are an expression of this wisdom

- opportunity for small group sharing in confidential, trustworthy, sacred spaciousness where participants are safe to explore the depths of the Spirit’s drawing.

- guided body prayer through Tai Chi and Qi-gong.  

- two follow up zoom sessions to enable the integration and stabilising of the learnings
