A series of retreats, workshops and courses are conducted on-site and other programs, have been offered in other centres throughout Victoria and interstate.
Each year a twelve-week residential Course/Sabbatical on Ecological Spirituality known as Sacred Earth is held from February to April. This course culminates in a Retreat/Tour of the Flinders Ranges. See above under Courses.
The teaching emphasis at the centre is not so much religious as spiritual in the broader sense, especially as it concerns an attitude and identification with the earthed tradition; and what is means to be a human in an evolving universe.
The Centre provides an opportunity for people to spend time on the spiritual and ecological dimensions of their lives. It offers space for reflection, discussion and education.
There is accommodation for around a dozen people and there is also a 'Hermitage' unit where people can come and spend some quiet time by themselves or with the community.
There is a set program of retreats and workshops for the year and details and costs for these can bee seen on the Calendar
The Centre wishes to be inclusive and welcomes all interested in the link between ecology and spirituality. The Centre is dedicated to the promotion of a sound spirituality which recognises the ecology of Creation, and the connectivity and balance of all life. The Centre also endeavours to gain insight into the role of the Human, in what has now come to be known as the Ecozoic era of the world.
There is an excellent spiritual/cosmology library at the Centre. For a quick look at some of the titles click on Glenburn Library
