This learning collective of Christian leaders and influencers will connect with God and one another in six retreats over two years.

I often feel like everything moves too quickly. Why do I so often feel more drained than energized? Can I find space for my soul to breathe? How do I incorporate true rest into my real, every day life?
I have tried to fill my life with achievements, possessions and recognition and I feel emptier than ever. Where can I find fullness that lasts? How can I live more connected with God, others, and my true self?
How can I step off the treadmill of mere busyness and make real, meaningful progress in my life and work? What would it look like to influence others out of the overflow of my relationship with God?
