A thousand voices clamor for your time and attention. One voice whispers an invitation. The voice of Jesus beckons you, “Come away with me. Let us go alone to a quiet place and rest for a while.” Mark 6:31
At The Soul Care Place, we want to honor the invitation of Jesus, to abide in Him, and take His words to heart. We can find rest for our souls through our intentionality to set apart time to attune to God’s in-dwelling Presence.
Creative Contemplation is a time to practice the unhurried rhythm of Jesus. The morning begins with a brief introduction or practice for the morning, followed by some quiet for you to meditate on and engage with the month's practice. This time of quiet integrates creative expression into the contemplation process, inviting retreatants to experience God through the creative process.
As embodied beings, God invites us to communion with Him by engaging all of our senses.
During Creative Contemplation, we make space to attend to the presence of the Holy Spirit, to practice listening, and to experience God in the midst of our everyday ordinary.
Come enjoy an intimate, leisurely morning with quiet and coffee and entering the mystery of Jesus.
All materials are included.
Spaces are very limited. 6 spaces per retreat.

Denver Leadership Initiative exists to build healthy leaders to create healthy ministries and healthy communities.
Our first call as leaders is to nurture our relationship with the Tri-une God. The pace of ministry and life is beyond the ability of our soul to keep pace. An intentionality to seek silence and space with the One who loves us help us recover our souls; helps us to surrender our ways to His ways. In this movement of surrender, we enter more deeply into the transformation of coming home to our true self - the created in-Christ image that is our true identity and place of freedom.
If you are a ministry leader, by volunteer or vocation, we invite you to enter into this day of soul space. The day includes brief times of guided practice, periods of silence for reflection and personal conversation with God, a retreat booklet resource to accompany your personal time, and lunch.
This event is hosted by Denver Leadership Initiative at denverlead.org
Into The Gardens
A retreat for renewing your soul
Spring & Summer 2021
$85 per retreat
Into the Gardens is a guided prayer experience integrating periods of personal silence and solitude with times of communal prayer. Leave your worries, anxieties and agenda at the gate and come set aside this time to listen to the Spirit; surrender to God's love and linger in His Presence.
This retreat experience is an opportunity to inhale deeply and relax into an unhurried rhythm while awakening to the beauty of creation in the gardens. In this experience, we are practicing the art of retreat in daily life; how to enter into worship while being in shared spaces not specifically set aside for worship. "For the earth is the Lord's, and everything in it," (Psalm 24:1), so let us worship Him wherever we may be.
Registration includes entry fee to the Garden. Lunch is not included. A session of spiritual direction may be pre-arranged at an additional cost.
Space is limited.
