FEBRUARY 1—6, 2023
Gather with global women
Reconnect with God's presence
Create space for your soul
This has been a long and difficult season, driven by a pandemic that forced all of us to accept a new normal. In the midst of this season of loss, the world has been assaulted by the tragedy of division and war. Many of us are tired. Some of us are exhausted. We all are wondering what might be next.
Amidst these realities, we invite you to step away. To take time to breathe and reflect, listen, and experience the sweet healing grace and goodness of God.
That's why this gathering is named Ava. It comes from the name Eve, meaning "to live and breathe"—and it has been created with you in mind. It is our desire that Ava offers a time and space for you to reconnect with God and renew your soul.
At Ava, we are taking a whole body and spiritual approach to wellness—coming together in a place of great beauty, wonderful food, meaningful worship, and sharing with other like-minded women. You will have time to meet with a counselor, talk about your story, be alone, and gather around the table with others. All this takes place over six days on the spectacular coast of Southern Spain.
