Choosing Community in an Era of Individualism
Retreat for L’Arche
30 March – 5 April 2019
B. P 21-23 rue d’Orleans
60350 Trosly-Breuil, FRANCE
Following on from the success of the 2017 Retreat in Trosly, France that L’Arche Australia coordinated for members in Australia and New Zealand, we are delighted to host another retreat in Trosly. Trosly is where l’Arche was founded and it has an unique place in our story.
The theme of this retreat is ‘Choosing community in an era of individualism’ and will focus on how you and we build, choose and develop community in Australia today. Ms. Eileen Glass has kindly agreed to lead the retreat. Our society is increasingly fractured and divided, with many groups closing in on themselves, when many community members in L’Arche Australia are ageing, How can we go forward as and when our needs change? New founders in communities or people joining communities today have a different range of expectations than 30-40 years ago. The retreat will be an opportunity to reflect on these issues and find new ways to go into the future.
We have a limit of the number of people who can attend and hope the retreat will also be a creative experience for everyone. There is an application form available on our website, under the “News” section or from firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, please phone David on (03) 6238 4341.
