The speed of life doesn't allow adequate time for us to process rapid external change - transition, grief, information overload, time famine - that impact us at deep levels. Holy leisure is built into this restorative time. Step off the treadmill of responsibility and experience the value of extended times of quiet, uninterrupted reflection and restorative play as led by the Holy Spirit. Give some devoted attention to the Lover of your soul and find out what he enjoys about hanging out with you! You'll be pleasantly surprised because, of course, his intentions usually do not include the "shoulds" "ought tos" and "need tos". Come join us in a surrounding of outer calm that leads to inner peace, making space and time for the one who knows us the best and loves us the most. We will use Questions for Jesus and among other things the spiritual discipline of listening prayer. Come to drink great droughts of God.
What to bring: An item that inspires you (art, poem, book), your journal, Bible and casual shoes and clothing.

There are wonderful paths to walk and the vistas are breath-taking. The purpose of the retreat is to breathe deep with God and exhale the fast pace of responsibility.
We will connect as a group Friday evening with each participant sharing briefly around something they've brought that inspires them. We also will meet Saturday after breakfast, afternoon and the evening then again Sunday morning after breakfast. The rest of the time is yours to discover Ashland, sleep, explore Lithia Park, read, hike around the grounds of stately County Willows. To facilitate this, the retreats will include a variety of Questions for Jesus and a few of the classical spiritual discipline (abiding in the Word, soaking in the Presence, silence and solitude, community sharing from the heart, and listening prayer), but each gathering will be unique in approach and emphasis. The common thread is the invitation for you to come, breathe deep, and rest under the canopy of his great love. View flyer here

Want to bring God encounters into your coaching--and your relationship with Jesus? Stop praying about the business ("God, what do you want me to do?") and learn to pray about the relationship ("Jesus, here's what I like about you: ____. What do you like most about me?") with a master of engaging the heart as your guide.
Questions for Jesus by master coach Tony Stoltzfus takes you on a journey of learning how to pray and coach around your deepest desires. Written in a devotional format, this book takes heart-level conversation with Jesus to a new level.
Questions for Jesus shows how Jesus spoke to the deepest desires of those he met--and how he can do so for you. Built around 52 passages in Matthew where Jesus touches desires, each meditation offers five powerful, heart-level questions that will help you enter into the passage and receive what your heart most longs to hear.

Both a coaching aid and a tool to group learning fun, the Desire Photo Cards effectively tap the emotional brain to reveal your deepest longings. Each large-format card (there are 32 in all) includes a carefully-selected color photo of one of the 16 desires on the front, with the twisted desire on the rear in black and white (to make them easy to sort). Using photos instead of words speaks the language of the emotional brain, making it easier to tune into feelings and desires. And it's a great way to stimulate authentic conversation and self-discovery in groups. A free, downloadable instruction booklet provides eleven learning games and coaching exercises that employ the cards.
