Christian Meditation Retreat – June 15-22, 2019

Spend 8 Days, 7 Nights in Monticello Amiata, Italy!

Are the demands of life, busyness, and stress weighing on your spirit, maybe even affecting your health? It’s important that we take extended time-outs to getaway with God, and ourselves, and push the reset button. This allows us to move forward with new clarity, energy, and a fresh new outlook.

One of the best ways to relax, reflect, and readjust our lives is to go on retreat. But not just any retreat, a contemplative retreat that encourages spiritual growth as well as ample time to just “be still” and abide in the loving presence of God. 

I’ve been facilitating God Getaway Christian meditation retreats for many years now. My God getaways retreats will help you to reconnect with God, nature, and our inner spirit.  Many past retreaters have shared how much these retreats have transformed their life and relationship with God. 

We still have a few more spaces for my next retreat,that will take place from June 15 to June 22, 2019 in South Tuscany, Italy. We’ll be staying on the grounds of Le Pianore Villa that is surrounded by woodlands, vineyards, olive groves and mountain streams, with spectacular views and untouched landscapes.   It’s the perfect place to explore the surrounding countryside, abide with God, and fellowship with other like-minded believers. See Photos.

 


What Can You Expect from a Getaway with God Retreat?

Reset: Every now and then we need to push the reset button and move forward with a clean slate. Come and let go and release all that may be weighing you down so you can begin your journey with clarity and a fresh new vision.

Reflect: Reflect on what is and is not working in your life and then make new choices or decisions to live by your values, dreams, and truest desires. Many times our behaviors don’t match our deepest values or how we want to feel. Reflecting helps us reevaluate what is really important to us and then move in that direction.

Reconnect: If you are not filling your spiritual gas tank regularly, you are probably running on fumes or empty. We need to take time outs to reconnect with Father God as well our ourselves. Being still, dwelling in silence, abiding in Christ presences and Christian meditation can help you to build your life on a spiritual foundation that will carry you through the stressful times of life as well as strengthen your Christian walk.

Start Meditating or Deepen Your Practice

Are you ready to start or deepen your Christian meditation practice? If so, you’ll love this Christian meditation retreat! In the beautiful country of Italy you’ll spend time connecting with God with other like-minded believers. Come and break free from the distractions and busyness of life where you can relax, release, and reset your life. You’ll also enjoy Christ-centered yoga and variety of other activities to transform your heart and nurture your spirit. We all need extended times to get away, clear our minds, and dwell in God’s presence. Come for the adventure of a lifetime!

FIND OUT IF THIS RETREAT IS FOR YOU?

A GOOD FIT IF:

  • You have a genuine interest in Christian meditation and want to deepen your practice and spend time connecting with God in a quiet and serene location.
  • You love meeting and getting to know new people.

  • You desire to grow spiritually and are open to participating in workshops and instructor-lead activities that will move you toward this desire.
  • You enjoy walking, eating healthy foods, and trying new things.
  • You have an open heart and mind and enjoying sharing the love of Christ.
  • You want to incorporate fun activities and some socializing while also addressing your spiritual needs.

NOT A GOOD FIT IF:

  • You need internet access and technology to stay sane. We want you to leave the world of technology behind for a few days so you can focus on others, yourself, and your relationship with God.
  • You are looking for “mostly” a FUN-FILLED vacation! Although we are planning some optional and group activities during our free time (hiking,  paddle surfing, and even kayaking) our main priority will be to cultivate a life-long Christian meditation practice.
  • You find walking difficult.  There may be lots of walking.
  • You’re looking for the luxury amenities of a 4 star hotel.
  • Stepping out of your comfort zone just isn’t your thing.
  • You are seeking to connect with God in a quiet setting with few distractions or activities.  I am planning on hosting some retreats for those who really want to JUST deepen their practice and spend time with God that incorporates activities that support this.
