Let everything that has breath praise the Lord! Psalm 150:6
Breathe Worship Retreat is an opportunity for you to step away from the everyday and enter into the presence of the Lord. Sometimes it takes an intentional time away from the daily grind to hear the Lord in this next season. This weekend happens to fall at the end of the Jewish Holiday Rosh Hashanah - the Jewish New Year. It's no coincidence that the Lord laid this weekend on my heart to gather his people to worship and renew our hearts on His Word and ways.

Breathe retreat is presented by Michelle Howe, Leadership Coach and Holy Yoga instructor along with Carlyn Hagler of Doodlespirations Creative Coach. We are your facilitators not your speakers. The Lord is our speaker and we are expectant that He will speak into each of us during the weekend. We will Breathe in His Word and Breathe out praise and worship.

Our retreat takes place in the serene nature surroundings of Okeechobee, Florida. The OK Corral has been a staple club in this Old Florida town. As of a year ago, they added beautiful ranch style cabins that resemble any 4-star wilderness lodge.

RETREAT SCHEDULE:
Your retreat experience begins Friday, Sept 22 when you arrive about 3pm and enjoy some quiet time or gather with friends in the main cabin lobby adorned with big comfy leather chairs. Starting at 5:30pm, we will move to the Ranch House for a private dinner. By the way, the food at OK Corral is AMAZing!! People come from all around to enjoy there award-winning fixings.

About 7pm, we will move into a group worship experience through reading His Word, worship music, breathe work, painting and however else the Lord moves. At 10pm, we will shift back to the cabins area for a bonfire. (Smores included)

Saturday at 7am will start the Corral Breakfast in main cabin Lobby. 8am will be an optional Holy Yoga Slow Flow then we will gather again for group worship at 9am at the Ranch House. From 9am to Noon, we will gather for worship, encouragement and sharing. Noon will be break for lunch. Did I mention how amazing food is like over the top yummy!!!

We will break until around 2pm then you have the option of a restorative yoga class or more creative painting or you have the option to rest however you feel. We will gather back at 3pm to worship again through music, breathe work, reading God's word and celebrating His good work in our lives.

About 6pm, we will pack up and head home.
