A previous post has advertised a number of opportunities for you to meet with and listen to Dr Alexander Shaia while he is Wellington. Another opportunity has arisen.
Alexander will be walking in the Rimutaka Forest Park on Sat. 16th March leaving the Catchpool Valley Carpark, south from Wainuiomata, at 10:30am with whomever would like to join him. Bring your lunch which we will enjoy together at the Orongorongo river. We plan to be back at the carpark around 3pm.
No need to register - just turn up....
Ring Terry (0276001927) if you have any concerns about the weather.

72 Hours of Easter for All Creation"
International Spiritual Director, Writer and Retreat Leader, Dr Alexander Shaia will be in Wellington very shortly to participate in the Eastern Suburbs Week of Guided Prayer which will begin and end with services in St George's Anglican Church, Seatoun.
In addition to praying and guiding participants during the Week of Prayer, Alexander will participate in and speak at the following gatherings which are open to the public:
"Praying Anew: 72 Hours (of Easter) for All Creation is a fresh expression of Easter, its spirituality and celebration. The prose and poetry speak of today and tomorrow but the strokes are brushed with antiquity, textured with the sensual earth, move to the rhythm of star and cosmos and infused with our dream to be one. The core structure comes from 3rd to 5th century Christian tradition, yet the prayer of that era does not serve as an exacting blueprint but rather invitation to explore contemporary need and mystery. What may be the only true innovation in this Easter are prayers set in unitive thought. These texts are an effort to lessen the last few centuries’ dualistic expression of self, cosmos and God. It is also hoped that the prayer style here might inspire poets and composers to craft chant and prayer anew in the language of diverse union ..."
During the latter part of 2012, Dr Shaia was a pilgrim on the Camino Pilgrimage trail in Spain.
