Christian Meditation Retreats - How To Save Money On One

Christian meditation retreats? Isn’t that sort of facility for monks and spiritual gurus? If you are a Christian you just might be scratching your head about such a concept. Can Christians really meditate, and if so, how? Well the definitive answer is yes! Christians can and should meditate. In fact, the Bible encourages believers to do so. Joshua 1:8 declares, “This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shall meditate therein day and night, that thou may observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shall make thy way prosperous, and then thou shall have good success.” We learn from the Bible that meditating on God’s word brings prosperity and success in life.

Because Rhonda Jones has taught Christian meditation for several years now and has hosted several Christian Meditation Retreats, she now has a few simple definitions for Christian meditation. Rhonda states that Christian meditation is “just being” with God. It’s kind of like in Genesis when Adam and Eve would walk with God through the garden just fellowshipping with him. Meditation is that time when we just “be still” and “abide” in God’s presence or chew on his word.

Unfortunately, as believers, we often don’t give much attention to spending time with God other than the time we allocate for church attendance. We’ve become so much like the world. Instead of pursuing God, we get caught up in the rat race of life and we just don’t know how to get off the treadmill. Jesus said in John 15:5, I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” If we are to bear the fruits of God (love, joy, peace, and contentment), we must spend more time with Him.

Many believers are beginning to understand the need to “be still and know (recognize) that He is God.” For many this means, carving out time daily to check in with God, to “just be” with Him. During this time we can soak in God’s presence, meditate on scripture passages, or even learn to take authority over our thought life. Meditation integrated with the scriptures is a wonderful tool to help believers overcome stress, worry, negative thinking, and a host of other toxic thoughts and emotions. Believers can use meditation to renew their minds.

Although Christian meditation is no new concept or practice, it’s not common place with the contemporary Christian church. You probably won’t find a Christian meditation group in your church, but you may be able to find a Christian meditation retreat in your area.

Each year Rhonda Jones hosts the Be Still Christian Meditation Retreat for four days and three nights in the beautiful Mt. Shasta area in northern California. During this retreat believers learn a variety of Christian meditation techniques including soaking in God’s spirit, scripture meditation, Christian mantra meditation, and guided meditation. All of these methods use the scriptures and Biblical principles to bring Christians in unity of mind and spirit and oneness with God and with others.

Other highlights of the retreat include a waterfall hike and picnic, meditation walk at the base of Mt. Shasta, quiet meditation by the creek, and Christian yoga every morning. The surroundings are breathtaking and serene and the accommodations are exquisite. This annual retreat is scheduled during the summer months and any one interested in learning how to meditate the Christian way is welcomed. Cost for the retreat is affordable and easy monthly payment plans are available.

Rhonda also hosts yearly Christian meditation retreats for Christians who have a bit more money and who want to learn how to incorporate meditation and stillness in their lives. But of course you can save a lot of money in retreat travel and retreat lodging expenses and instruction by just purchasing the downloadable versions of what Rhonda teaches by clicking on the square icon pictures below this paragraph and to the left of this paragraph along the side menu bar.
