On this Quiet Day, we will immerse ourselves in the prayers, poetry and wisdom of Teilhard de Chardin as we are attracted more deeply into the heart of Love's evolving moment. We will enter into silence and stillness together drawing on Teilhard’s invitation to see and to experience creation as a divine milieu.
Kerrie Hide will lead this Quiet Day. Kerrie has a background in mystical theology and taught courses in spirituality and spiritual direction at The Australian Catholic University. Currently she enjoys writing, spiritual direction and giving retreats. She is the author of the award winning book Gifted Origins to Graced Fulfilment: the Soteriology of Julian of Norwich and has written many articles on prayer. Her most recent publication is "The Ecstasy of Agape" in Personal Transformation and New Creation, edited by Ilia Delio, 2016.
Weather permitting, there will be an opportunity to enjoy the spacious outdoor environment in stillness and silence. Bring a journal and/or drawing material, a warm jacket and bottled water.
“Seeing: We might say that the whole of life lies in that verb - if not ultimately, at least essentially… Fuller being is closer union… and union increases only with an increase in consciousness, that is to say in vision.”
The Phenomenon of Man, 35.
