Enjoying A Retreat At Riverdell

James Swatman 2016I 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.
