Northern Rivers Region
ANSD Northern Rivers Regional Group was launched in Rous Mill Community Hall, near Alstonville, in northern NSW, on 29 July 2017.
The Northern Rivers ANSD Group meets four times a year for a reflection day, usually on a Saturday between 9.00 and 2.30. Our days begin with a Welcome to Country, when possible with Rev Aunty Dorrie, a Bundjalung Elder and supporter of ANSD in this region.
Our meetings integrate a contemplative dimension into the meetings with times of silence as well as communal time and a shared meal. Morning tea is provided and BYO lunch or dinner to share.
Meeting Location: Rous Mill Hall, Rous Mill, near Alstonville unless otherwise stated.
All are welcome.
The ANSD Northern Rivers Regional representative is Robyn Fitzgerald.
For further enquiries and to be added to the mailing list, please email Robyn.
