This is not a retreat during which you are expected to attend workshops, participate in discussions, etc. They call this an Event because you are able to spend quality time with the Lord in that secret place that you’ve sought after before but perhaps just couldn’t find. The dates are August 20th – August 25th, 2011 and the place is the Oceanview Hotel, Rocky Harbor, Newfoundland, Canada, located in Gros Morne National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site renowned for its spectacular views of mountain ranges.
