Full Book Description


Are you longing for a deeper encounter with God – a set-apart time to refresh and recenter your soul?

If the challenge of how to get away, or planning what to do on a retreat feels like a frustrating barrier, you are not alone. Life is busy. Often, it feels hard and complicated.


In response to the realities of life, this book provides six complete retreats that are readily accessible whether you have two hours, a day, or several days to get away with God.


Ready-to-go retreat guides, along with the other resources in this book, offer helpful guidance for easing into retreat, re-entry after, and bringing the gifts of the retreat into daily life. There is also guidance on using these retreats to lead your own small group retreat.


Each retreat theme invites the realness of our humanity to be fully present to God. This approach intends to bring the whole of life, our humanness, into God’s loving care. In these pages, you will find spaces to draw near to God, and open in communion with God through spiritual practices meant to engage the heart, mind, and body such as:


  • Lectio Divina (a style of scripture meditation)
  • Imaginative Prayer
  • Creative Exploration
  • Reflective Journaling


Discover the sacred space your soul needs to breathe, soak deeply in God’s love, and be renewed in God's presence.
