God's desire is to have a deep connection with His children. A deeper connection results in a more authentic relationship. Our ability to listen for God in our daily lives encourages this deeper, more authentic relationship. During this retreat you will learn how prayer practices can facilitate a deeper relationship with God and how they change the connections in your brain to become more loving and compassionate and less fearful and anxious. We will follow Jesus's example from Mark 1:35- "In the morning, while it was still very dark, he got up and went out to a deserted place, and there he prayed," to help us learn prayer disciplines that keep God first in our busy lives. When we do this we begin to live from a place where our prayer is God's prayer and our activity is God's activity. Jesus made retreats a personal habit. This is your chance to understand why.
