Indulge in a day of relaxation and rejuvenation at our Christian Meditation Day Retreat! We’ve designed the schedule to provide the perfect balance of spiritual learning, practice, and leisure.

Throughout the day, you’ll have the opportunity to immerse yourself in the teachings and practice of Christian meditation, led by the experienced Teresa Yerkes. Discover the transformative power of this sacred practice and learn how it draws us closer to the will of God.

In addition to the enriching sessions, we’ve carved out time for you to take a leisurely walk amidst the serene beauty of the woods, offering a chance to connect with nature and find inner peace. Engage in uplifting conversations with fellow participants, share insights, and strengthen your sense of community.

If you prefer a moment of introspection, feel free to read or journal, allowing you to reflect on the profound experiences of the day and record your personal spiritual journey.

This retreat is all about creating a harmonious blend of learning, meditation, and self-care, ensuring that you leave feeling refreshed, inspired, and spiritually nourished.

Christian meditation is a powerful practice that complements prayer, allowing us to go beyond merely communicating with God to listen attentively to His voice. Through meditation, we open our hearts and minds, creating a sacred space where we can receive divine guidance and wisdom. This transformative practice strengthens our relationship with God, fostering a deeper understanding of His purpose and plan for us.

During the retreat, Teresa Yerkes, an expert in Christian meditation, will guide you through the principles and techniques that make this practice so valuable. Regardless of whether you have prior training in Christian meditation or are new to the concept, Teresa will share insights and teachings that will help you draw closer to God and experience His presence in profound ways.
