In Psalm 143: 10, the Psalmist prays, “Teach me to do your will, for you are my God. May your kind spirit guide me….” As we step into the month of June, a time of renewed growth and vitality, and draw nearer to the latter half of the year, we take a look back at the list of resolutions and goals we set forth at the outset of 2024, eagerly anticipating personal transformation.
This weekend, we will reflect on these desires, discern God among them, and recognize the spirit within as our guide toward His will. We’ll gather together for the opportunity to stretch our minds and lean into our hearts to explore those intentions and values with which we began 2024. Together, we will deepen those desires that offer the transformation we seek, find willingness to surrender those that no longer serve us, and make room for those that God might be inviting us to receive in the year’s second half.
To facilitate this journey of exploration and self-discovery—mind, body, and spirit—we encourage you to bring any reflective materials that aid your introspection, such as your personal journal. Additionally, please bring any necessary items that support your yoga practice, including your mat, block, and blankets.
Space is limited for this retreat.
This is a silent retreat. Guests are expected to maintain a sacred silence throughout the retreat, including at meals, unless otherwise noted.
