Retreat Day: Air. Water. Fire. Stone.

Sorry this event has been and gone


  • Sat 28 Apr ’18, 9:30am – 4:00pm


Mercy Spirituality Centre, 104 The Drive, Epsom


All Ages

Ticket Information:

  • Fee: $65.00

This will be an “elemental” retreat day inspired by John O ’Donohue’s The Four Elements: Reflections on Nature.

In the peaceful space of Te Ngakau Waiora we’ll work creatively with each of the elements as a doorway to and source of deep connection with God. All creative materials and resources are included - but bring your own stone.

Seriously - bring a rock or piece of stone. You’ll find one over summer if you don’t have one already.

Facilitators: Fran Francis and Kris Telfer – Solace
