Presence Day – Costa Mesa, CA

October 8, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm


Presence Day (for women only)

Every day, we are bombarded with information–news, social media, tv, radio, conversations. We are kept busy with work, family, and other relationships. This Presence Day Retreat is a time for listening to One. Setting aside other input, we seek to be in a receptive mode, being present with God and our own hearts.

The flow of a Presence day retreat includes scripture reflection, instruction and direction from Gem Fadling, an extended time with God in solitude, silence and prayer, and sharing in spiritual community. Over time, this type of retreat can help you to create a deep reservoir inside your own heart, from which you can draw on in your every day life.


October 8, 2016, 9:00am-3:00pm


The theme this time is: The Ocean of God’s Love. Using the ocean as a metaphor, we will interact about ways we can really dive in and experience God’s love to the depths. Our movements in growing deeper may be counterintuitive. That’s why we need friends to encourage us along the way. Join us as we take the plunge!

What to Bring

Bring your own sack lunchwater bottle, a Biblejournalpencil, a lawn chair or blanket (for unhurried time) and anything else that helps you enjoy time alone with the Lord. Dress comfortably and casually for time outdoors (sunscreen and hats).


$35 – Includes printed materials and morning refreshments.


We will meet at a home in Costa Mesa, CA (you will receive an address after you register). For the Unhurried Time with God portion, you can enjoy nearby Newport Beach or the Back Bay. Bring a beach chair or blanket if you wish to sit during your time there.
