Retreat with Leaders of The Abbey
Rest is our inheritance. Getting away from the crowds and the noise to be replenished by time away with God is modeled for us in the story of Genesis and the life of Jesus. The busier our lives get, the more important it is we carve out time to step out of the hustle and go on retreat.
Participating in a retreat doesn’t have to look like flying across the world for an entire week (although, that’s fun too) but can take place over a weekend in a neighboring state, or even in your own home. Some retreats are yoga-centered, others make extended space for silence and quiet contemplation, while others offer more teaching and knowledge-sharing.

Amalia Yoga Retreat with Caroline Williams & Melissa Reed
September 29-October 5, 2019
For 6 nights and 5 full days this Fall, a group of 10 women will gather in a secluded luxurious villa overlooking the Ambracian Gulf in Greece to be swept up in delight, adventure, rest, and renewal. We’ll enjoy chef-prepared, fresh-from-the-garden meals, relax by the pool, and practice yoga on a deck overlooking the sea, shaded by ancient trees. Through yoga, imaginative prayer, quiet times of solitude, journaling, and creativity, we’ll draw near to God and drink deeply from His lavish love.
Refugio Solté Yoga Retreat with Caroline Williams
February 2-8, 2020
Uvita, Costa Rica
Refugio Solté is a sacred place where heaven and the jungle collide. Nestled on the side of a rainforest mountain, with breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean, you feel as though you're sweetly held in the palm of God's hands when you make the journey to Refugio Solté. This sanctuary was built as a place of rest, renewal and training for current and emerging leaders of God’s kingdom. Join Caroline for a week together on Abba's Mountain where we'll rest from work and be restored by the beauty and presence of God.
