Step 4: Going Deeper With Others

As you continue your journey into Christ-centered 3-C contemplative activism, consider Step Four: bringing us into your community for a Caring For Your Soul retreat, focusing on the themes of Christ-centered 3-C contemplative activism.


Gathering with others who are learning to care for their souls can be both rewarding and enriching. Spiritual directors from our team are readily available for a variety of retreat options for small groups and/or church leadership teams who are interested in exploring the many benefits of living the life of 3-C contemplative activism.

Our society is moving at an ever-increasing speed of fast. “If you want to hang on, you better speed up.” is the message of today. And as a result, many in our world find themselves stressed to the max, with calendars filled to the brim. When was the last time, for example, someone told you they were not very busy?

It could be useful, however, to remind ourselves that our basic needs never change. The need to be seen and appreciated. The need to belong. The need for nearness and care, and for a little love. This is given only through slowness in human relations. In order to master transformations in our ever-changing world, we have to recover slowness, reflection and togetherness and thereby find real renewal.


Living at the right speed ruthlessly eliminates hurry from your life. Dallas Willard

This is what our Caring For Your Soul Retreats are all about. We’ll take a relaxed approach to the important topic of soul care, giving you a handful of tools which have been used for centuries in helping busy people step out of the traffic and take time to re-acquaint themselves with their God, their family & neighbors, and most importantly, themselves.

Here’s some quotes from those who attended recent retreats…

“…the day was very enlightening and refreshing.  Through light direction by Marty and Sandy, we were able to come to a place where the Spirit could bring truth about our current condition and the direction that the Lord is leading.  It was encouraging on many levels and I would highly recommend it for people at any stage of their walk.  There is no doubt that Jesus was the leader of the day and was present and active in a very real way.”

“…we got a taste of Jesus.  When we get quiet it opens up space for Him to speak to us.”

“…very helpful and revealing at the same time. (God) revealed to me some of my strengths and I was encouraged to use (those strengths) even more…I was blessed through this day.”

Take a look at this amazing story of one man’s story of transformation as he learned to slow down his life, walking at Godspeed rather than his own hurried pace…
