download this information here

The Archer Mountain Earth Community situated in the Stanley River Valley is primarily a mountain habitat. Through deep listening and a contemplative stance the sacred in all of life is experienced and revealed.

The community offers 9 living spaces, available for private and group retreats and quiet reflection time.  Spiritual Companioning is available if requested.  The spaces include self-contained hermitages (Julian, Merton and MacKillop), The Guest House (4 bedroomed home) and The Glasshouse (2 bedroomed self-contained unit).  Come and spend time away from the rush of daily life and reconnect with the beauty and life-giving presence of nature.  

Other facilities include a lap pool, a space for meditation and prayer (The Thomas Berry Sanctuary), a space for reading and art (Riverdale Centre) and a space for group work and reflection (The Potter’s House).

March 21 Autumn – Equinox 
April 18 - 21 Easter Reflection at The Archer:  Beginning with the experience of the intimacy of deep friendship, symbolised in the breaking of bread and sharing the wine from a common cup, we enter the despair of betrayal and the mystery of death which is embodied in the trial, passion and crucifixion of the historical Jesus.  It is time to be still and present to the suffering of our planet’s earth community and enter the deep silence of the Earth’s womb throughout Saturday (Tomb Day).  This is a prelude to the radiance of the Easter morn when from the rags of embalmment new life is born, flaring forth into unexpected beginnings.  Please come and share this special time of resurrection with the Archer Mountain Earth Community. (Tony Hempenstall and Peter Harney)
