Saturday 22nd June

Brunswick Heads NSW

Brunswick Heads Uniting Church

10am to 4pm

Join us as we gather in the Far North Coast of New South Wales to experience God’s wonder amidst the Byron Bay Shire.

You are created in the image of God. You are fearfully and wonderfully made. But are there parts of you that you don’t like? Parts you might try to hide, dismiss, judge or criticise? I wonder what God might say to those parts of you? And what might God want to say through those parts of you?

This retreat is an opportunity to move deeper into the journey of embracing who God has made you to be – all the parts that make you, you. It is an invitation to slow down, and listen to the still small voice of God within you, reminding you who you are and who you have been made to be. The hope in doing this is that we may, led by the Holy Spirit, discover more of what it means to live life to the full.

This weekend will gently invite you into a variety of reflective, embodied and creative spiritual practices that will enable you to journey right where you are at, travelling at your own pace. All that you need is an openness to what God may both remind you of, and reveal to you.

Transparent, warm, efficient, and friendly, Lauren enjoys planning and hosting each retreat to ensure the needs of all participants are catered to, and that the event delivers the kind of soul-stirring, restorative experience which she herself originally sought to find.

Lauren Harkness created Rise Retreats out of her passion for wellness of body and mind and a desire to create intentional time away for women to connect with God and themselves through community and mindfulness.
