Spirit Journey is a 3-day (48 hour) retreat adapted from a model developed by The Upper Room and its "Academy of Spiritual Formation" program. Open to lay and clergy of all denominations, Spirit Journey's Benedictine-styled rhythm of daily prayer, Eucharist, teaching, silence and community offers time to fill the deep spiritual hunger that characterizes many lives. Since its inception in 2004, Spirit Journey has blessed participants with its breadth and quality of presentations and the time for personal reflection, rest and renewal. The Upper Room co-sponsors Spirit Journey.

The Spirit Journey will be held at Lakeview Conference Center. This year's presenter will be Amy Oden, Ph.D. who is currently a professor at Saint Paul Seminary in Oklahoma City, OK. Dr. Oden is a sought-out speaker and retreat leader and will lead from her most current book: Right Here Right Now: The Practice of Christian Mindfulness". She will guide retreat participants in rediscovering the ancient Christian practice of mindfulness.  Prayerful attention to God's presence "right here right now" leads us deeper into our relationship with our Creator.
