UWA Staff Retreat : two night residential retreat for rest,reflection and refocussing Other events...
This in the fifth year of offering these end of year retreats for staff at UWA. The feedback from previous participants has been universally positive.

The format includes some reflection on poetry, time alone in silence (walking, resting, reading) and we also introduce a process for group listening for anyone who wants support in discerning a question/issue of personal importance (called a ‘Clearness Committee’).

The design of the retreat is based on principles developed by the American Educationalist Parker J Palmer (Let your life speak; The courage to teach) and the Centre for Courage and Renewal www.couragerenewal.org

The retreat has an implicit contemplative spirituality focussed on listening and is not religiously specific and does not assume any faith position.

The focus is on creating some good quality space for refreshment, renewal and gaining clarity in personal and professional direction. The retreats and quiet days have support from Teaching and Learning and the Research Office. The cost will be approximately $300 and staff may wish to apply to their manager or Head of School for funding support as a recognised professional development program.

If you would like to know more, please contact Michael Wood in Chaplaincy on Ext 4762.
