Upcoming Silent Retreats 2020- 2021

A two-part series of teachings on awakening Luminous Presence

In the Gaze of
Luminous Presence

27th Sept–2nd Oct, 2020

Our God is a consuming fire. Heb 12:29

In an atmosphere of prayerful silence we will create a communion consciousness in the noosphere. Together, we will ponder the contemplative nuances of seeing from oneness in Luminous Presence. In the first retreat we will focus on the mystical symbol of fire expressed in the writings of Gertrude of Helfta, Marguerite Porete, Meister Eckhart, Teilhard de Chardin and Iia Delio. 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 will be taught on-line. Daily meditation and teaching will be from 9.30 -11.00am, with meditation from 4.00 – 4.30pm. 

Oneness in
Luminous Presence

7th-11th June, 2021

I will place my spirit in the midst of you. Ez 36:26

In this second retreat, 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 continue to 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 and 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 online by Dr Kerrie Hide. The cost of the retreat is $350.00.   A deposit of $150.00 is due on 18th November, 2020.   The final payment of $200.00 is due 13th May, 2021.  For further information and to book, click here
