“Our inner environment, that is, our thoughts, feelings and attitude, has a distinct relationship with the outer environment. Sustainability is a very deep issue requiring us to engage with ourselves spiritually. I believe the answer lies in changing our self-awareness. When I have true spiritual self-respect, not based on the material, then I will respect others and the environment. This is a state of giving, not taking or over-consuming”

Charlie Hogg, Brahma Kumaris Australia

The loss of humanity’s spirituality and original value system has led to unsustainable patterns of living. Regaining balance and harmony in our world requires a reawakening of human consciousness, whereby ‘hot heads and cold hearts’ are transformed into ‘cool heads and warm hearts’.

Spirituality is living a life based on inner guiding principles - a life which naturally embraces the wellbeing of the individual, the family, the community and the world.

During this retreat we will:

•explore the crucial link between spirituality and sustainability;
•learn the practical art of meditation;
•replenish ourselves through small group discussions, networking, silent walks in nature and evening entertainment.

This retreat is for professionals who work in the area of sustainability or who incorporate sustainability into their work practices.

We hope you will join us!
