An opportunity for enrichment and learning in spiritually challenging times.


Journeying with Heart and Soul

This programme will provide an opportunity to refresh and renew your soul, expand your heart and enliven your creative spirit. It is an opportunity to explore spirituality and soul, learn more about spiritual traditions and be introduced to inspiring saints and mystics. You will be inspired to enter more deeply into the spiritual dimension of life. You will uncover what lies at the heart of the Christian mystical tradition and discover an inclusive spirituality that is shared across traditions.  It is an enrichment programme that blends psycho-spiritual perspectives and practices for spiritual enrichment and development. Spirituality is how we express our longings, our values, and beliefs, and it is marked by journeying through life with heart and soul. By participating in this programme you will be invited to reflect on your own expression of spirituality, learn from mystics, saints and enrich your creative spirit. With this programme you are invited to live a more heart-centred and soulful life.
