WEEKEND RETREAT IN MELBOURNE
The Melbourne White Eagle Star Centre is hosting a week-end Retreat with the Australasian Lodge Mothers, Lyn Edwards and Gay Robinson. We would be thrilled if you could join with us for this event. We will be sharing our understanding of the teachings of White Eagle on different topics.
Saturday, 22nd September:- The early morning session Susan Cooper, Mother of the Melbourne Star Centre will speak about ‘Why we are here.’ The following sessions will be with Lyn and Gay titled ‘Stargate – how stepping through or working with the Star can change our lives and create new beginnings.
Sunday, 23rd September:- ‘The Fountain of Light’ will be the focus of today. We all have the Light of God within our hearts, the Light that gives us live and all that we are. How can we best express this Light, this God given gift?
Group participation is encouraged in some sessions, so we will all have an opportunity to share experiences and understanding.
We have enclosed a flyer which sets out the practical information, dates, time, cost etc. but we particularly wanted to add a personal warm invitation to join together with like minded souls, so that together, we can bathe in the essence, the beautiful, the spiritual upliftment and the sense of brotherhood that accompany the teachings of White Eagle.
We look forward to welcoming you to this very special weekend.

BENEFITS OF ATTENDING RETREATS
By attending retreats, you are giving yourself a wonderful opportunity to tap into the source of your being, to go within to that inner place of stillness beneath all thought, into the very heart of God, our Creator, that spark within our heart chakra. To do this it helps us greatly if we take the opportunity to withdraw from the outer world of hustle and bustle for a time.
The Retreat Centre and the Temple are prepared environments where stillness and peace is encouraged. You will find no TVs or newspapers in the complex. For this reason we ask you not to use your mobile phones, fax machines, computers, ipods etc as they will detract from the inner peace you are seeking to attain during your stay.
Need some time for yourself? A private retreat for a few days at the Star Retreat Centre and Temple of Light, Maleny, Queensland is the answer.
The Centre is also available to like-minded groups who are in sympathy with the teachings of the Lodge. Groups such as yoga groups, meditation & study groups, writing and art rroups would find the venue ideal and appealing.
Prices are available on application, for further information:
From Marian Linch “My first retreat. This has been an experience I will never forget. I didn’t know why I had come, but now I know how to continually connect with my Higher Power – the Christ without and within and my love and sense of purpose is now so beautiful and strong. I will go forward in ‘Truth and Love’.
