at Sunrise Ranch
This retreat is for Spiritual seekers and explorers, religious misfits and outliers,
former evangelicals, the Church alumni association, and anyone with progressive spiritual beliefs.
Experience how good it’s possible to feel when you reconnect your heart, mind, body, and soul with the Divine during this four-day wellness retreat.
Step away from the hecticness of your normal routine and be guided deeper into connection with a knowing and loving Presence that yearns for and celebrates your remembering and growth.
You will feel your spiritual cup being filled through our morning, midday, and evening rituals including meditation, yoga, qigong, labyrinth walks, time in nature, wellness treatments, music, spiritual direction and coaching, and rich personal interactions.
Through deepened spiritual practice with a like-minded community, you will leave this experience spiritually refreshed and rejuvenated, knowing that you belong, you matter, you’re loved, and that you can flourish and thrive in life.

Arrive at Sunrise Ranch by 4pm on our first day to settle into your room and explore the grounds of the beautiful ranch. We’ll get to know one another during a pre-dinner orientation and jump right into the richness of the weekend’s activities after our delicious opening meal.
Optional morning qigong will gently awaken your body. After breakfast, enjoy Rev. Roger’s signature “Nature Ministry” while on a walk through the surrounding landscape. Reflect on his teachings with either free time or optional yoga. After lunch, unwind with wellness treatments (Shiatsu or Thai Massage, Attunement, and a Spiritual Coaching Session w/ Rev. Roger). End the evening with mindfulness and spiritual teachings, under the stars, warmed by a fire. Only a few days after the new moon and far away from the city, the darkness of the night sky will allow breathtaking amounts of stars to be seen – you can even see the Milky Way galaxy from way out here!
Optional morning qigong, followed by breakfast and another of Rev. Roger’s Nature Ministries. Then choose your own adventure to integrate his teachings with yoga or free time (walk the labyrinth!). In the afternoon, enjoy free time and wellness treatments, take an optional tour of the garden and watch a demonstration of Rev. Roger’s Shadow work. We’ll celebrate our last evening with a vivacious dance party, as both Roger and Jessica love to dance!
Enjoy your final morning optional qigong on this short but sweet wellness retreat weekend. After a nourishing breakfast, pack up before we have our final closing circle and enjoy a Sunday service with the Sunrise Ranch community. Schedule your return flight no earlier than 3:30 pm on Sun., Sept. 12th. Lunch is included on this final day.
