God Getaway Retreat Mexico- Spring 2020

christian meditation mexico

If you haven’t been on a God Getaway Christian Meditation Retreat, you don’t know what you’re missing! 

I really love retreating in Mexico and this is one of my favorite cities. It’s so cute and quaint. In addition, airfare to Mexico is quite reasonable and close to the U.S. For most payment plans, just pay a deposit of $300 and make 9 monthly payments of $107, $113, or $125. 

You Would Benefit from a God Getaway Retreat If You:

  • Want to learn how to meditate and establish an ongoing practice.
  • Desire to draw closer to God by spending time in His Presence.
  • Need to take a time out to just be with God and others seeking God more deeply.
  • Need some support and tools to help you stay on your spiritual path.
  • Need more clarity, to build your faith, and to release fear and negativity.
  • Need to loved and nurtured without judgement.
  • Just want to fellowship with some like-minded believers who are also seeking encouragement.

We all have those times that we just need to get away from it all and reconnect with ourselves and God. With a God Getaway Retreat you can just pack your bags and head of the hills in a beautiful setting where you will be nurtured, loved, and guided back to your first love: Jesus our Messiah!

Retreats provide us with the time to relax, reset, readjust, and reflect on what’s working and what’s not, and that’s just something really hard to do when you have so many distractions at your beck and call. Retreats also give us time to reconnect with God, nature, and our inner spirit. During this contemplative retreat, you’ll get the time needed to reassess your life and relationship with God and make changes that will help you to build your life on a spiritual foundation with Yeshua at the center.


Retreat Location: Punta Monterrey, San Francisco, Mexico

Punta Monterrey, in San Francisco, Mexico about a 45-60 minute ride from Puerta Vallarta airport.  Punta Monterrey is surrounded by 300 acres of jungle which is an ecological reserve. Punta Monterrey Beach has kept the natural beauty and wildness since then. Punta Monterrey Beach Hotel was designed for people who like extreme nature and privacy. Enjoy our amazing sunsets, take a walk in the jungle or taste our fresh seafood and fish.


What Can You Expect from a Getaway with God Retreat?

Reset: Every now and then we need to push the reset button and move forward with a clean slate. Come and let go and release all that may be weighing you down so you can begin your journey with clarity and a fresh new vision.

Reflect: Reflect on what is and is not working in your life and then make new choices or decisions to live by your values, dreams, and truest desires. Many times our behaviors don’t match our deepest values or how we want to feel. Reflecting helps us reevaluate what is really important to us and then move in that direction.

Reconnect: If you are not filling your spiritual gas tank regularly, you are probably running on fumes or empty. We need to take time outs to reconnect with Father God as well our ourselves. Being still, dwelling in silence, abiding in Christ presences and Christian meditation can help you to build your life on a spiritual foundation that will carry you through the stressful times of life as well as strengthen your Christian walk.

Start Meditating or Deepen Your Practice

In the beautiful country of Italy you’ll spend time connecting with God with other like-minded believers. Come and break free from the distractions and busyness of life where you can relax, release, and reset your life. You’ll also enjoy Christ-centered yoga and variety of other activities to transform your heart and nurture your spirit. We all need extended times to get away, clear our minds, and dwell in God’s presence. Come for the adventure of a lifetime!

FIND OUT IF THIS RETREAT IS FOR YOU?

A GOOD FIT IF:

  • You have a genuine interest in Christian meditation and want to deepen your practice and spend time connecting with God in a quiet and serene location.
  • You love meeting and getting to know new people.

  • You desire to grow spiritually and are open to participating in workshops and instructor-lead activities that will move you toward this desire.
  • You enjoy walking, eating healthy foods, and trying new things.
  • You have an open heart and mind and enjoying sharing the love of Christ.
  • You want to incorporate fun activities and some socializing while also addressing your spiritual needs.

NOT A GOOD FIT IF:

  • You need internet access and technology to stay sane. We want you to leave the world of technology behind for a few days so you can focus on others, yourself, and your relationship with God.
  • You are looking for “mostly” a FUN-FILLED vacation! Although we are planning some optional and group activities during our free time (hiking,  paddle surfing, and even kayaking) our main priority will be to cultivate a life-long Christian meditation practice.
  • You find walking difficult.  There may be lots of walking.
  • You’re looking for the luxury amenities of a 4 star hotel.
  • Stepping out of your comfort zone just isn’t your thing.
  • You are seeking to connect with God in a quiet setting with few distractions or activities.  I am planning on hosting some retreats for those who really want to JUST deepen their practice and spend time with God that incorporates activities that support this.
