Lent Reflection Days 2017
Lenten photo
Monday 27 March at Christ Church (Wayville)
Or use the purchased material in your own time and place.

During the Season of Lent we are encouraged to take time to reflect on Jesus’ journey to the Cross, and alongside the life of Jesus, to consider our own unique journeys, and the impact the teachings of Jesus have upon the way we live.

This day of reflection offers the opportunity to sit with the Beatitudes, the radical values and ideas contained in what is known as the Sermon on the Mount, that are keys to the Kingdom of God both in the present and for eternity.

How might those who are poor in spirit, mourning, meek, hungering and thirsting for righteousness, pure in heart, peacemakers and persecuted for righteousness be examples of ‘Kingdom Living’?

How might we embody these ‘Attitudes of Being’ in our everyday lives?

A Brochure with details of the 2017 Lent Reflection Days may be downloaded here.
For online registration and payment (closed).

Transition Retreat

Everybody at some point in their life will face significant change as they move from one phase of life to another. It may be from study to work, from work to retirement, from one job to another, or some other noteworthy transition in life. These times can be difficult, but they can also offer an opportunity for reflection and growth that will make the transition a positive experience.

Stillpoint Spirituality offers Transition Retreats to assist people in the negotiation of these life changes.  Consult the details as they become available.

Library  

We have a growing Library of resources in Spirituality, Spiritual Practices, Contemplative Living, DVD’s of international speakers and CDs on Meditation. As we transition to new locations in 2017, we will announce where you may browse from this collection.

The Stillpoint Labyrinth
Book a time to use the Labyrinth

Labyrinths in various designs have been part of human culture for centuries and appear at many Christian locations. The Stillpoint Labyrinth, created by well-known Australian artist Cedar Prest, is a tool for prayer, meditation and reflection. Click here to view our labyrinth.As you walk you are making a symbolic journey to the ‘centre’ and out again, and each journey, on each occasion, can be different. For additional information about labyrinths, visit our web page at Stillpoint Portable Labyrinth.

The Stillpoint Labyrinth can be hired and taken off-site. Bookings can be made by contacting the Stillpoint Office, or by emailing stillpoint@internode.on.net.
