Retreat: Rockforest Reawakening

  • Mount St Benedict Centre 449D Pennant Hills Road Pennant Hills, NSW, 2120 Australia (map)

A retreat immersion experience in the UNESCO World Heritage listed Blue Mountains for reconnection, reflection and renewal of our responsibilities for the Earth community. 

Grounded in the unfolding Universe Story, we will immerse ourselves in the unique formations, waters and forests of the Blue Mountains and Gardens of Stone National Parks, home of the Gundungurra and Darug peoples.
We will discover the rich geological and spiritual heritage that links the people of the region to this place. We will attend to our grief, bearing witness to Earth’s destruction by visiting sites impacted by human extraction, as well as visiting sites of beauty and healing.


This time of learning and renewal will immerse participants in the mystery and inspiration at the heart of life’s unfolding. We will deepen our appreciation of the beauty and sacredness of the natural world, hear the cry of Earth and bring forth our imaginative responses (personal, organisational and communal) to the challenges of our time and place.
