Our Lady of Mercy College, Heidelberg (Melbourne) Workshop

Two of our educators at Rahamim visited OLMC in Melbourne last week in order to run workshops at the staff spirituality day where the focus was on “Our common home…our common spirit.” Sally Neaves, Rahamim’s Eco-Education Coordinator, led the whole school in a opening ritual to connect with earth and each person’s bone country before we heard two facinating talks by Sr Adele Howard and Sr Liz Dowling. Staff participated in chosen workshops of their choice throughout the day.

Sally ran an afternoon workshop on a range of eco-spirituality practices to  facilitate greater connection and intimacy with Earth.

Ana Freeman, Rahamim's Online Educator, ran a workshop for staff on contemplative art making that involved meditation and drawing in the Zen Tradition. Participants created a hand sewn journal of their sketches and poetry from the day.     

A fantastic day was had by all!
