Abstract

This study on the development of Retreat ministry in the Australian landscape is about the very physicality of the created and ever-evolving landscape of deserts, mountains, and lush coastal fringes, which invite exploration of their outer terrain, even while we seek our bearings for the inner journey of the Spirit. It is about the specific opportunities provided by spiritual Retreats to begin to unlock and celebrate some of the mysteries of the presence of the Incarnate Word in this land, centred on and empowered by God’s unconditional Love.
