What's On

Contemplative Book Club

Retreat centre

1st April  – 6th May 2024. 

6:15 – 7:15pm. 

Join us for a reflective reading of Wild Mercy: Living The Fierce And Tender Wisdom Of The Women Mystics, by Mirabai Starr.
Each week we’ll start with a short meditation, followed by a reading of the book and a time of reflection. (No prior reading necessary.)
Share in the subversive wisdom and fierce compassion of the feminine mystic across cultural boundaries and throughout history. From saints and sages, to goddesses and archetypal energies, to contemporary teachers and seekers—you’ll meet women who blazed a path that will illuminate your own.
Each chapter explores a different facet of feminine mysticism through a tapestry of teachings, reflections, and stories, along with a practice for integrating the chapter’s themes into your own life. As you journey through these pages, you’ll meet Saint Teresa of Avila, Julian of Norwich, Indra, Rabia, Kali + more.
Wild Mercy provides a much-needed alternative to the models of religion and spirituality that have dominated history. Here, Mirabai invites you to welcome the wisdom of women back into the collective field where it may transform the human family, heal the ravaged Earth, and awaken the divine love in our hearts.
Books can be ordered from Red Kangaroo Books in Todd Mall, Alice Springs.
*** Feel free to come early and join in our free, regular Monday evening meditations from 5:30 – 6pm ***
