Soul Hideaway Personal Retreat
SOLITUDE - SPIRITUAL PRACTICES - SOUL CARE
Soul Hideaway is a guided contemplative retreat that offers spiritual renewal through:
1. Retreating from the busyness of life to peaceful solitude in nature
2. Learning and practicing spiritual disciplines
3. Personal sessions with a trained spiritual formation director
4. Understanding what it is to 'be' in the presence of God
A full day will include prayer times, served meals, plenty of time for solitude, and the option to be guided in journaling, scripture reading, artistic exercises, etc. Whether the attendee needs a break from routine, refreshment in a challenging time, or to refocus after losing a sense of direction, Soul Hideaway is the place to reconnect with God.
Karen Block brings a wealth of cross cultural experience to spiritual direction, having lived nearly 2/3 of her life outside of Canada as an adult third culture kid (missionary kid). Karen’s heart is to see those around her thriving (PS 52:8). The gift of hospitality – a safe place – and the gift of listening have blessed Karen as she seeks to pass that gift on. Believing that our biggest challenges on our journey with God is learning to “let” God love us and learning to let that love transform us. Karen offers a space to explore that challenge.
Karen also seeks to engage creativity in the spiritual journey. As an artist, she finds freedom to discover and express emotions, struggles, laments and celebration through various art forms. Karen has experience and longs to journey with those going through life transitions, seeking to be more attentive to God’s presence, going through crisis events or simply those who long for a companion on the road.
Karen had gained experience and training in spiritual direction with Spiritual Growth Ministries, New Zealand in 2010-2011. She is trained in debriefing skills with The Well International, Chiang, Thailand, and has offered personal debriefs since 2010.
Karen has been leading contemplative retreats since 2006, adding contemplative art retreats in 2011.
