Pozhet holds two Retreats each year, one a few hours north and one a few hours south of Sydney – to try and cater for people who live in regional areas. This Retreat was held in a Sport and Recreation Centre South of Sydney at the end of April, and the weather was fine.
We had 18 people, a group of men and women, partners and one lovely child, who came from all over NSW. On Friday evening Leo and Maxine welcomed the group and after a nice dinner, we settled in with introductions and some fun games to get us all acquainted. There were a few people who were recently diagnosed, and quite a few who have lived with HIV for years. Everyone seemed to be doing well. It’s a good thing to have a mix of people and personalities as people learn from each other. [Read more…] about Pozhet Autumn Retreat 2017
