Rainforest Reawakening – A retreat immersion experience of Mercy through rainforest reconnection, reflection and renewal of our responsibilities for the Earth community. 9 – 11 July 2018
Join a beautiful collaboration of Rahamim Ecology Centre and Mercy Ministries Far North Queensland.
Grounded in the unfolding universe story, we will experience the lush rainforest of the World Heritage Listed, Mossman Gorge, the site of the Kuku Yalanji people who are among the first human inhabitants of Australia. We will discover the rich spiritual heritage that links the people of the region to the land. We will attend to our grief, bearing witness to Earth’s destruction by visiting sites impacted by deforestation of the landscape as well as visiting sites of beauty and healing.
LEARNING AND RENEWAL
This time of learning and renewal will immerse participants in the mystery of the living God, who dwells at the heart of the natural world. We will deepen our appreciation of the beauty and sacredness of the natural world, hear the cry of the earth and bring forth our imaginative responses (personal, organisational and communal) to the ecological challenges of our time and our place.
This retreat will be an experience of deep gratitude for Earth’s gifts, becoming aware of Earth’s pain, and seeing with new eyes before going forth renewed.
*Participants are welcome to arrive a day or two early, or to stay on afterwards, to enjoy the surroundings and other things that Far North Queensland and the Wet Tropics have to offer.
Inspired food by Rahamim will be served during this retreat. We will experience healthy, simple living within Earth’s limits, mindfully eating an abundant fresh, seasonal, organic, local, vegetarian and ethically-sourced diet.
