Reconnect with God and Yourself
Come and get refreshed in God and learn how meditating on Christ and the Scriptures will deepen your relationship with God, help you let go of stress, grow more spiritually, and maintain your peace of mind even during times of crisis.
The GETAWAY WITH GOD Christian Meditation Retreat is going to teach you the life-changing practice of Christ-centered meditation, a spiritual practice that many Christians have never done before, but that is encouraged throughout the scripture. Joshua 1:8 tells believers that it is through meditating on Christ that we gain true success in life. Yet not the success of the world, the success of a loving, joyful, and thriving relationship with Jesus Christ.
- Facilitator Rhonda Jones
Christian Meditation Teacher, Rhonda Jones, will instruct and mentor attendees in the practice of Christian Meditation and other spiritual disciplines that promote peace, joy, and intimacy with God. Rhonda Jones is the author of 23 Christ-centered meditation and affirmation CDs and the book, A Date with God. She is also the creator the “Help Me God Change My Life Program” and “Abiding in Christ 12-Week Online Christian Meditation Course for Beginners.” She believes that spiritual growth and personal transformation begins when we learn to “be still,” meditate on scriptures, and connect with God in spirit and truth. Rhonda, a 400 + hour yoga instructor, attended dual yoga trainings at Nigora Center in Berkeley as well as Yahweh Yoga in AZ. She loves to combine the scriptures and Biblical principles along with Christian meditation to promote strength, flexibility, peace of mind, and greater awareness of God.

I will walk away with new tools to better my life and a better way to Be Still and listen to God. “- Shelia , WA

She was a wonderful facilitator.”- Joe , WA
“This retreat was wonderful. The atmosphere was conducive to our goal! Everyone was friendly, loving, and wonderful to each other. This retreat has given me hope and hope to share with my family. The retreat has given me a clarity and peace that was not there before. The highlights were the “Scrub the Wall” meditation, the “Scripture Meditation,” and EVERYTHING outside! I think Rhonda Jones’ demeanor was professional, personal, loving, and KNOWLEDGABLE! I could listen to her all day. The course content was COMPLETELY relevant to my life. It was easy to learn and just soak in all the information as I was so thirsty for it.”- Veronica , WA

“The retreat was everything I hoped it would be and more. I learned new spiritual tools that will help me in my search to know God more intimately. these tools are “priceless.” Rhonda, you are a sweet and gentle spirit whose love for God shines through. Thank you for being obedient to God’s calling- your work helping Christians get past the “talk” into the “walk” with God.” – Anoymous
“I was extremely impressed with the retreat. Everything was done with a spirit of excellence. I will forever be changed through the power of meditation (time with God). The principles you shared were confirmations that I must “Be Still” and awaken the power within. Rhonda, you have a beautiful spirit and are walking in what God has called you to. To use your pain and testimonies are an important and necessary part of the retreat experience. Your past pains were there to guide others through the same life struggles we all face. The course content and stories were sent to you by the Holy Spirit. I have a prayer room in my home where I use to thresh on the floor 3-4 times per week with God. The cares of life took me from that. So you see God used you to be my GPS guide to guide me back to Him!” – Charrisee, CA
“My overall thoughts of the retreat are awesome. It was sad to pack up and leave. The highlight of the retreat for me was making new friends and the Soaking in the Spirit session. My goal for the retreat was to be forever changed and experience God like I never have before and the Holy Spirit wrapped his arms around me and I felt him give me a hug. I cried like when your parents give you a much needed hug. I also flet or visioned Him washing away my pain and hurts. Rhonda was great. I love her honesty and “down to earth” attitude. She was relate-able and I appreciate her willingness to share that even though she knows how to meditate and be one with the Lord, she still gets pissed and still wrestles with self-confidence. It shows that this is a process and we will never fully be at a place where we don’t have to learn, grow, and ask for forgiveness. I would like to see this be a yearly thing. This has been a transforming and life changing activity.” – Aletha, WA
“The retreat impacted my life in a powerful way. Rhonda you are living in the moment! Praise the Lord! Follow the passion of your life and it will lead you to peace and joy that is Jesus.” – Sherry, CA
“My first impression of the retreat was that it completely changed my life. I lived a life of confusion, doubt, and depression and was prayer-less prior to the retreat. Upon learning to still my mind and soul, I learned the power of prayer and the tools to use it properly. My highlights were the great company I was in. The people were fantastic, the activities were amazing, and the material inspirational. This retreat has changed my life and the lives of all the people I wll come in contact with. Lives were changed and Jesus was glorified through this retreat. I absolutely adore Rhonda. She was graceful and present and she delivered the material in a loving way full of God’s love. I learned a lot from her simply because of her love for life, others, and for Christ. Thanks to Rhonda and this retreat depression, confusion, and doubt no longer linger at my door.” – Lanora, WA
