The Sydney ANSD Group meets about every six weeks for some nourishing input, collegial support and congenial hospitality.
Members and anyone with an interest in Spiritual Direction or the particular topic are most welcome.
Most meetings are held 12.30-3.00pm on Fridays. A couple of reflections days or longer twilight sessions are held each year.
