Retreats

“Be still and know that I am God” Psalm 46:10

We are so glad that you are here. We want to encourage you to find the stillness in your life so that you can truly know God. Retreats and reflection days have always been a part of Anima’s mission. This year we missed out on holding our annual Lenten Retreat and we know it was very much missed. We will be holding an Advent retreat in Melbourne on the 2nd December at St Phillip’s Parish in Blackburn North. Please click here for more details. 

We do understand, however,  that life can be hectic and you might find it difficult to find opportunities to spend time with Christ. For many, travel, time constraints, responsibilities at home or at work mean attending a physical retreat is impossible.
We are also working on an online platform to be able to provide women a place where they can stop and pray at a time that suits their schedule. It will be a very simple format that should be accessible for anyone with an internet connection.

We are working on having some of these ready in time for Advent. A time where we need to remember amongst all the hustle and bustle of the lead up to Christmas that really, we should be preparing our hearts to receive Christ. We need to be sure to make time to be still, to know that He is God.

The Plan for the online Retreat Structure

For every Sunday of Advent we will be posting a link to a new “mini” retreat which will be based on the Gospel of the day.

We are working with some really wonderful people to provide reflections in both video and written form for you to use to as aides to prayer.

The format will be as follows:

  1. An audio file of the gospel of the day
  2. A 10-15 minute Video by one of the retreat leaders.
  3. A downloadable work book with scripture passages, reflection questions
  4. A list of suggested further reading
  5. A playlist of relevant music.
