A Weekend Retreat to Nurture Spiritual Reconnection

9:00 am Saturday, May 4 through
 3:00 pm Sunday, May 5
Dragonfly Landing
610 Falling Water Rd.
Cookeville, TN 38506


Reconnect to the spiritual wisdom within you – and surrounding you – that has been dormant and ignored for too long.

In today's world where noise drowns out truth, and connections are superficial and fleeting, we offer you a path to clarity, authenticity, and sacred wisdom.

This retreat is your gateway to a revitalized spiritual life lived with intention, purpose, and profound connection.

Have you ever felt a knowing that you are meant to find a deeper connection to life that's just
waiting to be discovered?

Does your heart yearn for a journey back to its spiritual home, but you're not sure how to get there?

Do you feel the call to find the missing pieces that are the keys to your spiritual reconnection and fulfillment?

Do you long for moments of true peace and connection, where your mind is quiet and your heart feels at home?

In a world filled with stress and distractions, the whispers and ancient wisdom of our spirit guides are too often drowned out or ignored.

We are living in a society that is starving, yet feeds us nothing but cell phones and reality television. We all have a deep innate craving for the old ways of spiritual connection to nature, our deeper selves, and the higher powers. We need this connection to be truly fulfilled, healthy, and happy.

This retreat is a journey of discovery and reconnection, where ancient spiritual practices and modern insights merge to guide you towards reconnecting with the universal spiritual wisdom that is always there for us.

You can leave all of life's stress and distractions behind, and explore ways to:

  • Reconnect with spirit
  • Develop deeper spiritual awareness and connection
  • Bring spirituality back into your daily life
  • Answer the call for sacred connection

This retreat is an invitation to rediscover the interconnectedness of all things, and to reawaken our connection to the innate wisdom of our spirit guides who have been waiting for us all along.

You'll engage in meditation, spiritual inquiry, and special practices that open the doors to higher consciousness. Surrounded by the beauty of nature and a community of like-minded seekers, you'll embark on a quest for understanding, truth, and the sacred connection that nourishes our souls.
