REST Retreat: Relax and Ease into Sacred Time

Do you long for a time when you can get away and focus on Rest, Reflection, and Renewal?

Accept this invitation to pause and reset. 

Rest is your Soul’s Love Language. This special opportunity gives you the chance to rest intentionally. And when your time is your own… you breathe, read, journal, receive a Healing Touch session, mindfully eat your meals, lay in a hammock or swing, sit on your personal screened porch, walk the prayer path or trails, stop to smell the flowers, watch the fluttering butterflies, listen to the songs of the birds, soak your feet, sleep, dream….

Whatever you need, whatever your body wants, whatever your soul craves, whatever your spirit desires…this retreat focuses on a unique theme designed to offer a place of renewal.

Retreat includes:

  • Two nights accommodations at the Sisters House in a private room with private bath & private screened porch with ceiling fan.
  • Five nutritious, delicious, complimentary meals.
  • Snacks, tea, and coffee.
  • Private in-room coffee service, with access to a refrigerator. You are welcome to bring beverages or supplemental food items.
  • One-hour private Healing Touch session with Connie Hoffner, CHTP
  • Foot soak with essential oils.
  • Yoga Nidra session.

You are invited to ease into the quiet.

This is sacred rest it is all your own…​

This retreat is limited to four participants.
