Event description

Description

This program is suitable for adults 16+

As a teenager, Rob Donnelly was looking for enlightenment. He was looking for belonging and a connection to something. He considered every New Age book on the shelves, he meditated, chanted, and at one point even turned to Shirley MacLaine, devouring the actor’s works on spirituality. Then Rob contacted his cousin who was a Catholic nun in a Carmelite order in the hills of Launceston. This led him to join a contemplative monastery in Melbourne. Rob committed himself to God, but was unprepared for the intensity of the life, and his morality being at odds with the church. His memoir is a coming of age story set in extraordinary circumstances.
