We enjoy meeting and learning from the world around us. This takes many forms – meeting people from the community and hearing their stories, collaborating on workshops with faith communities and institutions of learning, forging connections with the wider narrative & pastoral community from around the world and creating experiences for fun & togetherness to embrace us.
Perhaps you find yourself at a crossroad in your life, uncertain of which way to go? This retreat has helped many discover the next step in their journey. The Crossroads 2-day retreat includes sharing and group reflection, as well as quiet and personal space. It's a chance to step out of everyday life to reflect, with others, on your goals and dreams, your values and your relationships.
Our Narrative Reading Group is the perfect opportunity for you to learn more about the art of Narrative storytelling through reading of published articles and engaging in discussions about the themes found within the reading material. The reading group consists of a collective of narrative learners and practitioners who meet once a month on the 4th Friday of every month.
Regardless of artistic ability, our workshops invites contemplation through creativity and the appreciation of beauty.
