Recognising the Wonder of God within us and the giftedness of others in our lives.
A series of 4 full day sessions from 9.15 am to 2.45 pm. Each full-day session takes one of the senses, and through a series of reflections, stories, and activities, awakens participants to the gifts of their own individual senses. The four sessions are:
- The Sense of Touch
- The Sense of Sight
- The Sense of Hearing
- The Senses of Taste and Smell
The Sense of Touch
Hands Create, Hands Heal, Hands Celebrate – presence, connection, and transmission.
During this session we will explore the myriad of meanings behind the word ‘Touch’. A range of gentle, sense awakening moments considering feelings, emotions and the wonder of the largest organ – our skin, which holds our well being. There will be time for listening and time for quiet reflection.

The Senses of Taste and Smell
Sweet, sour, fragrant, pungent, –smell the roses: sense the memories.
These senses are so dependent on one another; they are presented together. Going back to Biblical times participants are taken through a geographical and historical development of the blessings of these two special senses. Using practical elements to demonstrate and illustrate the power of both the senses of taste and smell, participants can look forward to a day of wonderful sensations as we taste and smell our way through the time we spend together. Childhood memories are evoked, and exotic travel tastes remembered as the day progresses.
Date: Thursday 8 September
Session: Four of four.
Presenters: Geraldine Taylor and Megan Phillips
The cost for each session is $50.00. With only 12 places available for each session, prompt registration is recommended.
