Mercy impels us to extravagant hospitality, compassion and justice in the Earth Community
shattered by displacement. (ISMAPNG Chapter Statement 2011)
This retreat is for those who wish to
- listen to the story of Earth
- attend to Earth’s beauty
- grieve Earth’s destruction
- whilst growing in our ecological identity
- and exploring imaginative responses to the challenges of our times.
In the course of the weekend we will use a range of media and offer time for interaction as well as for quiet reflection.
