Rest and Renewal Retreats

bench.penuelridge

feeling tired? burnt out? like you need a break? or is your staff needing time away from the every day grind?

You're in the right place.

We are meant to live healthy, thriving lives where we live wholeheartedly into who God created us to be. We forget that taking care of ourselves isn’t selfish, it’s simply being a good steward of the only gift we really have to offer...ourselves. We don't have to live burnt out and exhausted all the time.

It can be hard to find the time to invest in yourself or your team. This is where retreats come in.

Two retreat options are available:

  • Personal Rest and Renewal Retreats
  • Organization Retreats

Rest and Renewal Retreats

R&R retreats are a time for you to take a break, to find rest and to look inward to see what you really need to do in order to best care for yourself. You’ll leave feeling replenished and equipped with tools to implement regular rhythms of rest and renewal in your everyday life.

It's a mixture of structured and unstructured time where you're given space to do what you need to do in order to feel rest and to reconnect with your true self and to feel replenished. If you come and sleep the whole time, that’s okay! :)

Most importantly, it’s a chance to break the habit of always being on the go, of striving and of constantly caring for others. It’s a chance to participate in life-giving activities, to find rest and hopefully even meet a few new friends, nourish your soul, and leave with a renewed energy.

Great opportunity to breathe, relax, and hit the pause button for a weekend. We were encouraged and given the opportunity to rest in our God-given shape and love, take time for ourselves and by ourselves, and enjoy fellowship if we wanted as well!

Organization Retreats

Retreats are known to improve staff health, lower rates of burn out and increase staff togetherness. Your organization may want a retreat to get away from the every day grind of work, have fun, provide a place for team bonding, take time away to plan and vision or a mixture of all of the above! 

Staff retreats are often not restful for the staff member that still has to plan the schedule and lead the activities. Abby will attend the staff retreat and plan and implement all activities. This leaves the programming to an outside source, with input from the leadership team, so that the whole team can enjoy their time away.

One day or 2-3 day retreat options available.

The Rest and Renewal Retreat was a great experience to spend time in community but also in solitude. It was wonderful to have a digital detox and to spend time where I didn’t even know what time it was. Abby did a wonderful job of promoting self care and encouraging self discovery for the areas of growth needed and providing the structure to process them. I came back renewed and refreshed!
