Preparing to do a quiet meditation in the forest surrounding our retreat area.
We had this beautiful view of Mount Shasta.
Retreat was held in this cute and quaint bed and breakfast located in McCloud, California.
Meditating during one of your morning sessions.
At the lavender fields on one of our excursions. We also did a walking meditation around the labyrinth.
Took a short hike to this beautiful waterfall.
This weekend was amazing. I have had a pattern of running from the emotions I felt in quietness. This weekend allowed me to feel and believe this is the beginning of transformation. I now have the tools to live my life as a believer and act like one, free from stress and anxiety. Thank you Rhonda and Peggy for all of your work to put this together and facilitate the weekend.
Thank you very much. This was the most exciting 4-days that I have had in years. I never meditated nor have done yoga, so thank you. My highlights of the retreat were understanding spiritual meditation and meeting new and wonderful Christians or shall I say God’s children. I will walk away with new tools to better my life and a better way to Be Still and listen to God.
The relaxed tone was very inviting. I felt immediately at ease in the environment that Rhonda has cultivated. I feel like I will be leaving this retreat with an arsenal of tools to deal with over-activity, distractions, and anxiety. I am so grateful for Rhonda’s joyful heart and giving spirit. She was a wonderful facilitator.
This retreat was wonderful. The atmosphere was conducive to our goal! Everyone was friendly, loving, and wonderful to each other. This retreat has given me hope and hope to share with my family. The retreat has given me a clarity and peace that was not there before. The highlights were the “Scrub the Wall” meditation, the “Scripture Meditation,” and EVERYTHING outside! I think Rhonda Jones’ demeanor was professional, personal, loving, and KNOWLEDGABLE! I could listen to her all day. The course content was COMPLETELY relevant to my life. It was easy to learn and just soak in all the information as I was so thirsty for it.
The retreat was wonderful! I feel I have had a couple of breakthroughs during meditation sessions and I now have tools to take home with me from what I’ve learned. Rhonda is an amazing God-loving gentle woman. The course content was very relevant to my daily life.

I was extremely impressed with the retreat. Everything was done with a spirit of excellence. I will forever be changed through the power of meditation (time with God). The principles you shared were confirmations that I must “Be Still” and awaken the power within. Rhonda, you have a beautiful spirit and are walking in what God has called you to. To use your pain and testimonies are an important and necessary part of the retreat experience. Your past pains were there to guide others through the same life struggles we all face. The course content and stories were sent to you by the Holy Spirit. I have a prayer room in my home where I use to thresh on the floor 3-4 times per week with God. The cares of life took me from that. So you see God used you to be my GPS guide to guide me back to Him!
My overall thoughts of the retreat are awesome. It was sad to pack up and leave. The highlight of the retreat for me was making new friends and the Soaking in the Spirit session. My goal for the retreat was to be forever changed and experience God like I never have before and the Holy Spirit wrapped his arms around me and I felt him give me a hug. I cried like when your parents give you a much needed hug. I also flet or visioned Him washing away my pain and hurts. Rhonda was great. I love her honesty and “down to earth” attitude. She was relate-able and I appreciate her willingness to share that even though she knows how to meditate and be one with the Lord, she still gets pissed and still wrestles with self-confidence. It shows that this is a process and we will never fully be at a place where we don’t have to learn, grow, and ask for forgiveness. I would like to see this be a yearly thing. This has been a transforming and life changing activity.
My first impression of the retreat was that it completely changed my life. I lived a life of confusion, doubt, and depression and was prayer-less prior to the retreat. Upon learning to still my mind and soul, I learned the power of prayer and the tools to use it properly. My highlights were the great company I was in. The people were fantastic, the activities were amazing, and the material inspirational. This retreat has changed my life and the lives of all the people I will come in contact with. Lives were changed and Jesus was glorified through this retreat. I absolutely adore Rhonda. She was graceful and present and she delivered the material in a loving way full of God’s love. I learned a lot from her simply because of her love for life, others, and for Christ. Thanks to Rhonda and this retreat depression, confusion, and doubt no longer linger at my door.
Enjoying Christ-Centered yoga to exercise our bodies and quiet our minds.
