Steve leading a women's retreat.


A retreat is an intentional sabbatical that offers opportunity for reflection and renewal.  Retreats are offered an any number of topics and are designed to support those moving through transition or seeking a transition.  Retreats may be for groups or may be individual guided retreats specially designed for the person seeking to go on retreat.  A retreat may be a one day event or multiple days depending upon the topic and the needs of the group or individual.

Group Retreats are offered on a variety of themes and are designed to provide opportunities to meet the spiritual needs of those involved.

Individual Guided Retreats are individualized to the needs of the one seeking a retreat.  Steve Arnold provides one hour of support prior to the retreat, one hour of support while you are on retreat, and one hour of support following the retreat.
