Listening with Open Ears, Open Mind and Open Heart
Spiritual Director and Pastoral Supervisor
I have a passion for fostering human connection through deep listening and for being a listening presence among the fringes.
I have had the privilege of offering pastoral care among those living with homelessness and providing life-giving ministry as a Prison Chaplain. Learn more…
“Listening is the oldest and perhaps the most powerful tool of healing”
Rachel Naomi Remen
“Liz Lee nourishes the spirit of those she partners with. She sometimes disturbs, always stimulates and cares deeply. Liz’s openness to the Spirit in our present, local and universal communities is very contagious. She shares her gifts and insights generously, and has a prodigious work ethic.”
Frances Warner, Principal, Bethany College (retired)
Retreats and Reflection Days
Listening Among the Fringes
A 6-day guided Conteplative Photography Retreat that provides an opportunity to see with fresh eyes and hear with fresh ears as we contemplate our world with a camera and listen to the Post Resurrection encounters with the Risen Christ as recorded in the Gospels.
Five stand-alone weekends spread across the year.
Each weekend is an opportunity for us all, women and men, to hear and see the Good News through the words and the lives of named and unnamed women in the Gospels and allow these women to speak into your life.
There will be the opportunity to enter and explore each story through Lectio Divina, poetry, Visio Divina, photography, labyrinth walks, art, midrash and silence. Spiritual accompaniment will also be available with the retreat team.
Can we welcome all? Can we hear voices that we may not want to hear; see those that we may not want to see? Over the past few weeks, we have been reflecting on what it means to be a welcoming and inclusive community. I am inspired by the mission of Wayside Chapel- creating community with “no us and them.” Can we be a community that welcomes all, such there is “no us and them?” Where our judgements dissolve and we provide a safe place, where all welcome? How might today’s readings invite us to deeply reflect and lead to us be more inclusive, individually and communally?
I respectfully acknowledge the Traditional Owners of Country throughout Australia and recognise the continuing connection to lands, waters and communities. I pay my respects to the First Nations People and their Elders both past and present. May we journey together.
I am committed to honouring and celebrating diversity. I respect all people regardless of age, race, creed, gender, cultural background or sexual orientation. My liberation is tied up with yours.
