Friday 21st June to
Sunday 23rd June

Brunswick Heads NSW

Venue: Brunswick Heads Uniting Church

Day 1 : Midday to 5pm
Day 2 : 9am to 5pm
Day 3 : 9am to midday

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. 

Your Weekend Retreat Includes

RECHARGE &
BE NOURISHED

It is important that you feel nourished and sustained on your retreat.  

We are passionate about showcasing the best produce of the Far North Coast NSW region and have teamed with local producer to bring you a delicious, healthy and seasonal menu.

We will provide a welcoming feast in the afternoon on Friday, morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea on Saturday, and a sustaining morning brunch on Sunday.

The Rise Retreats vision is to share warm hospitality as we gather together at the table.

Retreat Host

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.
