For the past few years, the Anglican EcoCare Commission has hosted some inspiring and refreshing retreats with excellent attendance and heart-warming feedback.
This year, we offer a different kind of experience –
Reconnecting with Country
An experienced Nyoongar Elder and teacher, Noel, will lead us together in a bus north of Perth, where we will camp for two nights in different locations. Departing Thursday 7th May, and returning Saturday 9th.
The experience will provide an opportunity to listen to stories, visit culturally significant sites, follow songlines, learn language and begin to understand spirituality on Nyoongar Boodjar. Coming to a better understanding of Nyoongar spirituality does not require you to diminish your own faith.
As this trip is open to all, we would appreciate you promoting it within your parish (Parish clergy please note this is not a clergy retreat). Applicants do need to be aware that it involves camping out! The cost is $350 (waged) or $300 (unwaged).
For more information please contact Melanie Hare on Ph: 9325 7455 or email: email@example.com. Application forms can be emailed or posted to Melanie at the Anglican Diocesan Office, GPO Box W2067, Perth WA 6846.
Food will be vegetarian (with some kangaroo). Please bring your own tent/swag, chair, cutlery and crockery.
