In the still, quiet rainforest, whilst in a small log chapel in the Southern Highlands, Rise Retreats Founder, Lauren Harkness heard a whisper from God.
In this whisper, was a call to create a series of retreats for women which would feed the whole person, both nourishing and fulfilling faith as well as mind and body. Each retreat would be an opportunity to be with God and to reignite that spark for life which can burn out when we are so busy, and give so much without replenishing ourselves spiritually and physically.
“Rise was created during a time where I was longing for a retreat. In the busyness of juggling family and business, I searched for a place of spiritual refreshment. I yearned for a place of rest and ‘time out’ and a little bit of pampering! There are a lot of alternate wellness retreats but Rise offers something more, it offers connection with God.”
We are passionate about you.
