About the event
Feel like you are losing the spark of creativity, inspiration, or innovation? Wondering how to take care of yourself while dedicating yourself to serving others? Faced with a problem you know can be solved but at a loss about how to find that creative solution?
Caring people who work in a wide range of pursuits aimed at creating a more peaceful community or world, or people working in community development and social change, tend to put their own wellbeing second and are susceptible to service burnout.
Resilience Retreats acknowledge the personal challenges and impacts of ongoing humanitarian service and peace work. They restore balance by reinvigorating, renewing, and reconnecting people with their creativity. We create the presence and place for your reflection so you can continue to remain focused, engaged, and renewed.
Join us for a five day exploration of reflective practice in Flinders, Mornington Penninsula, Victoria, Australia. Connect with other inspiring people and be nurtured by your surroundings. Reconnect with your self and your purpose through nature, wood working, music, storytelling, and other creative activities.
Cost: The cost of the retreat is AU$1,650 or US$1,150. This covers accommodation (4 nights during the retreat), meals during the retreat (5 days), and the retreat program and materials. You are responsible for your transportation to Melbourne. We can assist with transportation arrangements to the venue in Flinders if needed.
Note: This is not a training workshop. The ‘classroom’ will be the places where conversations unfold. It will be the green spaces and beaches where you walk and around the table as food and experiences are shared. It will be in the wisdom of pressing pause on the constant chatter in your mind and observing what emerges from the silence.
We deliberately do not send you an agenda, which will be somewhat disconcerting for some. This is a retreat, and we ask you to trust us to take you on this journey. For those of you who prefer a bit more structure in your lives, the general schedule for each day should be more or less as follows:
Morning movement (optional)
9:00 - Official start of the day & morning activities
Post-lunch - Afternoon activities
17:00 (approximate) - End of the day’s official activities
Each session will be engaging, activity-based, and will connect to the beautiful setting for our retreat. The sessions are carefully planned to build on each other and we invite you to trust us and come along for a meaningful and practical exploration of resilience. Evenings are free and we will have dinner together each evening.
