Renew & Restore
The Retreat Program
O God, you are my God, I seek you, my soul thirsts for you; my flesh faints for you (Ps.63:1) My heart and my flesh sing for joy to the living God (Ps.84)
We knee, sit, bow, stand, lift up hands, dance, and clap in worship. Embodied prayer reminds us that our “body is the temple of the Holy Spirit” (1 Cor.6:19) and whatever we do we are to “offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God” (Rom.12:1).
Our God is such a generous God who provides us with a great variety of means to live out who he has created us, saved, and called us to be in this Kingdom Life. Prayer and prayerfulness continue to be the primary lifeline to renewing and refreshing us in this journey.
In this guided silent retreat, I would like to lead you on the exciting adventure of cultivating embodied prayer in the forms of Prayer Postures – Lying Down, Kneeling, Sitting, Standing, and Walking Prayer; Prayer Senses – Seeing, Hearing, Tasting, Touching, and Smelling Prayer; and Prayer Movements – Scripture, Worship, Meditation.
There will be daily prayer and meditation that provide the materials, spiritual exercises, and reflection questions to facilitate your encounter with God. One-to-one Spiritual Direction will also be available to accompany you in your retreat. (Check out the One Path website to find out more about what is Spiritual Direction: https://one-path.com/services/spiritual-direction/).
All Covid-19-related Safety Measures will be observed throughout the retreat. More information regarding the retreat and venue will be available in the retreat preparation and briefing handouts closer to the retreat date.

God showed up for me at the retreat and I am glad I could pause and hear from Him.
It was a much-needed rest for me to retreat from emotional stress and be restored by God. With the help of the retreat guide, I have received His goodness through His word and the advice of the Retreat Director
The location was serene and quiet. A good place to really to "restart and reboot" oneself from the stresses of life and to get one's life back into God's perspective.
