24 hour poetic retreat

Friday 17th September 6pm - Saturday 18th September 6pm, Maleny, Queensland

A poetic retreat held by Peter Westoby and Rachael Donovan to explore the world of delicate activism through connection with nature. The retreat is grounded in the question, 'Can a practice that foregrounds observation bring healing to the world?'  Premised on the problem of disconnection and alienation, the retreat will be a deep dive into seeing nature. 

In witnessing nature, we will then write about our observations and interpretations with poetic expression and reflection as a method of delicate activism.

The retreat includes:

  • gathering at 6pm for Friday night shared dinner, sitting around a fire with poetry 

  • re-gathering on Saturday 8am until 6pm, for three rounds of observation, poetic expression, and shared reflection. The Saturday will include shared morning and afternoon teas + lunch. 

Please note: participants are responsible for their own accommodation on Friday evening.
