WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

 

” It was an opportunity to take part in a retreat before Lent.  It was great to be able to have the time to concentrate upon prayer without distractions. The inner quietness and the knowledge of God’s love within me rather than it being “out there somewhere!”. Most important  was the One-on-One Session each day. The everyday retreat was an accessible way for us to plan in to our day.  I think we are very fortunate to have access to so many “Events” and Services – The Library, The Carmelite Family and 2 Beautiful Churches.”

 

“I benefited a great deal from Charles’ sessions not least because he is a kind and compassionate man. The idea of living in the now has helped me immensely in caring for my 95 year old mother who is now very disabled in a home. It has helped me not become consumed with this issue. The concept of this breath, this moment. Not living in the past or present – living in the now. Excellent teacher created a spiritual experience.”

 

“Just wanted to once again say a big ‘Thank You’ for making the walking pilgrimage happen. It was a lovely mix of solitude and camaraderie for me, and has been very restorative. The response at the end showed everyone appreciating it so much. My soles may be wounded and sore, but my soul is refreshed.”

 

“Thanks for the nice week end we have spent together in Warburton. On Friday when I joined the group, it was for me an “unknown world” but as soon as I was welcome by Damien, I just felt that I was “really at home”. I have made new friends immediately and I was impressed by the warmth hospitality / simplicity / respect for each other and the Carmelite spirituality during the whole week end. Also it was very nice to meet Sr Rosemary, Br Angelino and Martino. On Sunday the mass at the Sancta Sophia Meditation Community was great and meditative, thanks also to Ken and Kathleen for their warm welcome and the great BBQ on that day. Last but not the least my thanks to Denis who accompanied us on this bushwalk as our spiritual leader.”

How wonderful Fr Matthew was able to share with us the wisdom and insight of his vast experiences that have covered 70 years. You do not often get that opportunity. Thank you Fr Matt. Blessings.

Pat, February 2024

 

“Isn’t it amazing the way life just gets in the way once we’re back in the “real world”. Thank you so much for the opportunity to join such a beautiful pilgrimage – so beneficial on so many levels! Many thanks for all your hard work of organisation, it paid off! I am so grateful to you and thanks to the group who made the days so enjoyable.”

 

“Thank you sooo much for the Carmelite session with Father Denis Andrew. It was so wonderful – a delightful, warm hearted talk that was engaging, questioning and led me to deeper and vaster contemplations. This session left me with much to explore. Ruth Burrows! Where have you been all my life?? Time to make a new spiritual friend in Ruth, time to dive deeper into the ‘stream of love’ and explore new spiritual depths, ideas and contemplations.”

Emily, March 2024

 

“Thanks Damien and Irene for organising this Pilgrimage, it has been a wonderful experience and I enjoyed every minute, the spectacular walks in perfect weather, the spiritual input, the comaradarie with the group ending with that beautiful mass in a amazing setting. Feel very blessed to have had this experience………..”
