A day for nourishing the hungry heart through contemplative engagement with creation and creativity.
The poet Rainer Maria Rilke coined the term ‘in-seeing’ to describe poetic, artistic, spiritual, seeing - using our faculties of sight, both physical and imaginative, to encounter what we behold. To see deeply, entering what we behold ‘as it were to the place where God sat down after it was created and saw that it was good’.

The day will provide opportunity to explore the spiritual practice on ‘in-seeing’ in God’s creation and in some of our own.

You are invited to bring a piece of art or craft that you have created – drawing, painting, woodcraft, metalwork, weaving, needlework, poem … for use in the day and you get to take it home again afterwards!

Booking essential.

Andrew Pritchard enjoys the contemplative life, the great outdoors and playing with wood (carving, turning). He is Convenor of Spiritual Growth Ministries and Assistant Coordinator of SGM’s Spiritual Director Formation Programme. Andrew and his wife Lynn are founding members of Shalom Christian Community, an ecumenical community on the Kapiti Coast, and they have lived there for 28 years.
