A gentle invitation to come aside for a silent retreat away from the daily rounds of life to nurture your soul and to reflect on your life within the colourful beauty of Autumn.

There will be optional contemplative activities available like bike riding, bush walking, photography, and yoga. Morning and evening prayer and spiritual direction will be offered daily. 

There is a three or five night option  - both start at 5:00pm on Friday 8th March and finishing on Monday 13th or Wednesday 13th March 2024. The cost of the three night stay will be around  $700.00 and the five night stay is $1,300. You can reserve a space now with a non refundable deposit of $50.

Note the venue has shared bathroom facilities. 

Mary and Tim McCowan are experienced spiritual directors and retreat leaders. Mary has a particular interest in visual art as a prayerful place. Tim is part of the Spiritual Companion Formation team at WellSpring. He enjoys walking in nature, reading and contemplative photography. Mary is available to answer any questions about the venue and content of the retreat.
