It is a camping retreat, with everyone sharing the cooking and the responsibility of activities for the children.
This retreat will provide time for shared activities with the children, like bushwalks, but also time for parents who want to, to be able to meditate while their children are having fun doing other activities. Betsy Faen will provide meditation instruction for those that would like it, plus the possibility of individual interviews and groups.
There are wide verandahs for those who don't want to sleep in tents. Gorrick's Run has bush toilets and showers, a beautiful meditation hall, and a cottage with a kitchen and dining room. It is in a beautiful setting near St. Alban's. Grandparents and other extended family members are welcome. The retreat is nearly full, but we have room for one or two more families.
Location: Gorrick's Run, which is located in the Upper McDonald Valley, Past Wiseman's Ferry, NSW. Registration & Payment: click here.
