24 hour Poetic Retreat

Friday 19th November 6pm - Saturday 20th November 6pm, Maleny, Queensland

As a response to a disconnected and manic world, this reflective retreat explores the world of delicate activism (see Kaplan & Davidoff, 2014, The Proteus Initiative) and is grounded in the question, 'Can a practice that foregrounds observation bring healing to the world?'

Through the practice of observation, reflection and connection with nature, the retreat invites an opportunity to practice a new form of activism in our personal and professional lives. In witnessing nature, we will write about our observations and interpretations through creative expression 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.
