Event description

Enneagram Sessions, Contemplative Practice, Connecting with Community & Nature

Join us on 100 acres of beautiful nature at the Cedarbrake Retreat Center to foster space, rest, and growth. We will explore together and take time to nurture our authentic selves in God. Come learn how to increase your awareness and ability to allow, acknowledge and move through limiting patterns and blind spots utilizing the Enneagram map, research by Dr. Brené Brown, and more. Sessions will provide ample space for self-reflection, discussion, and journaling to process new insights. Freedom is given to seek the space you need to cultivate rest and renewal of your body, soul & spirit—in deep conversation, on nature walks, gathered around the table or fireplace, or listening to live, contemplative music. Essence Retreat is Christian based. However, ALL are welcome regardless of faith tradition.

We all need space to breathe and connect—time to get away and engage in vital personal work in a beautiful, restful environment. The Essence Retreat invites you to enjoy a weekend of contemplation, listening, and learning while enjoying delicious & healthy meals around a community table of love and grace.
