Included in your retreat package


Treat yourself to the gift of privacy with your own room. Rooms are equipped with ensuite including shower. Rooms are located in a separate wing of the main part of the building. In addition to access to the grounds you also can enjoy a private lounge for retreatants, private dining and reading and reflection rooms.


Enjoy wholesome and filling meals to warm your heart and nourish your body.  Morning teas, lunches, and dinner Saturday night are included. The focus of dining is to support you. In the spirit of a reflective retreat some dining will be in silence.


The Facilitators will present a topic and give much food for thought. You will be taken to new 'places' and gain new understandings. There will be time for questions and discussion. 


Quiet Times

There are chapels, prayer rooms and many areas outside that are conducive to quiet reflection, prayer and reading. Find a chair under a tree and relax and internalize! 


Labyrinth Walk

An ancient spiritual tradition that has been used throughout the ages is the labyrinth. To walk a labyrinth is to open your self up to answers to your questions. On your own you are welcome to use the labyrinth at any time.


Reflective resources

To inspire you and open you up to other ideas, thoughts and insights there will be some reading material. Art supplies and other materials will be available for you..

Beautiful grounds to explore and find peace

Your retreat location is the beautiful grounds of St Joseph's Centre for Reflective Living. This centre is located in Baulkham Hills close to Norwest but surrounded by nature and space. You are able to walk the grounds and enjoy this quiet oasis in the midst of local suburbs.
