Last Monday I spent the day at a Pause Retreat, run by Connections Counselling. I had been somewhat apprehensive in the lead-up, wondering what I would do, “doing nothing” for a whole day, as I am usually constantly on the go.
However, I thoroughly enjoyed my day.
From the moment I walked in, I felt a sense of peace descend. Lyn has thought of everything, and it is so well done.
A meditation is provided should you wish to use it, and I completed half in the morning and the next part after lunch.
I had a stint in the massage chair provided, and a lot of time sitting outside listening to the water feature and doing my knitting!
Lyn provided lunch, plus morning and afternoon tea – all very yummy.
I opted to engage in a counselling session, and the rest of the time just sat and thought or read.
I thoroughly recommend this retreat if you want to re-charge your batteries and feel cared for and nurtured at the same time.
As a busy working mother, it can be so difficult to find space to really meet with God. Through Pause Retreats, Lyn has created a place where one can set aside the day-to-day distractions of life and focus on listening to and being with the Lord.
The retreat space is beautiful and thoughtfully curated, the guide materials helpful, and the food delicious. Thanks, Lyn, for creating a retreat like this in Perth!
