JANUARY 30 — FEBRUARY 5, 2024
Gather with global women
Reconnect with God's presence
Create space for your soul
Living cross-culturally has many unique challenges. Cultural barriers, visa issues, political uncertainties, team conflicts, education for kids, physical and mental health concerns, stress on relationships, the never-ending needs of people, and so much more. It wears on one's soul.
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 called Ava. It comes from the name Eve, meaning "to live and breathe"—and it has been created with you in mind. Our desire is for Ava to offer 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 each day, unpack your story, and gather around the table with others. We've added an additional day to Ava that is free for you to explore, go to the beach, shop, or enjoy some solitude. We have an amazing team of skilled volunteers that include trained counselors, spiritual directors, life coaches, a medical doctor, and worship leader.
All this takes place over six nights on the spectacular coast of Southern Spain.
