Step into Life Retreat 16-21 Oct 2022

5 day hiking and spiritual retreat staying in Catholic Presbytery Hobart

STEP INTO LIFE

A 5 day retreat to take stock and create a better future.

PLEASE NOTE: DAtes may change.

Currently scheduled for 8pm Sunday 16th Oct to 6pm Friday 21st Oct 2022

Why would I go

  1. It’s in a beautiful location overseas (Tasmania)
  2. It’s affordable (approx. $100 plus flights and evening meals)
  3. It’s intimate yet communal (between 6-8 participants)
  4. It’s potentially life changing (providing opportunity to recalibrate and renew)

Key benefits

  1. It will refresh you spiritually (whether you consider yourself a spiritual person or not the program assumes that there is a God who is present and wants to meet with each of us to bring us into newness of life)
  2. It will stretch you physically (each day there will be a hike - some more strenuous than others ranging from 2 to 5 hours. This is an essential part of the program but can be done at your own pace)
  3. It will enrich you deeply (with good people, deep input, magnificent scenery, incredible activities, time and space this could be just what you need)
  4. It will help bring balance and purpose to your life (each participant is encouraged to come with at least one big life question: where am I going, what am I doing, who am I, where is God, how am I going to spend the rest of my life, what do I need to change/do to bring better balance to my life?)
