I have recently enjoyed the pleasure of a six night stay at a self-contained cottage at Riverdell Spiritual Centre., Gawler. This was the ideal setting was for my purpose of finding a haven of peace, quiet and tranquillity.
My purpose in coming to Riverdell was to discover why I was feeling grumpy, frustrated, angry, sad, heartsore and footsore and unloveable. I was fortunate to be able to attend a one day event called “Empowering Yourself” that was running at the time. I was one of 12 people who carried out a life journey reflection, which showed me the real truth about my life – that I’ve been growing spiritually as a result of the challenges I’ve faced along the way.
After being at Riverdell and taking this time out to do the work of examining my life so far in such a safe, supportive, loving and nurturing environment, I now leave with a renewed enthusiasm for Life. I feel rejuvenated. I am open, peaceful, contented, grateful and humble to have left behind my old view of Life lived “ looking through a glass darkly” and discovered newly my Life begins each day afresh, with Inspiration.
And the cottage accommodation was great! It was 4 star and considering the low cost, this was incredible value. The provisions included fresh milk, tea, coffee, fresh bread, fresh eggs from Riverdell hens, cereal and a selection of beans and jams. The kitchen/dining room was well equipped with all the necessary cooking utensils plus comfortable armchairs and several tables too. The bedroom had a lovely queen size bed, was very comfortable and the bathroom/shower/toilet was small and clean but well equipped.
As I run a retreat venue myself, I recognise high quality experiences easily. This was one. Thank you to all at Riverdell for making it this way.
