Upcoming Canberra Events 2023
As always, our venue is the Australian Centre for Christianity and Culture and the times are 9:30am-3pm.
Our opening Quiet Day provide access to a chapel space and the outdoor labyrinth on the property. We hope this will be a way for us to ground ourselves in silence & community, stillness & movement as we journey into another year. Finger labyrinths will also be available to ensure the day is as inclusive as possible. Presenters and themes for the rest of the year is still a discernment in progress and will be confirmed as soon as possible:
20 May – Chambers Pavilion with Linda Chapman
exploring the writings of Thomas Merton and the theme,
“The Hidden Language of Nature: When the Trees Say Nothing”.
RSVPs by Friday 12 May are very much appreciated.
