RETREAT TESTIMONIALS

"This experience was totally a gift to me. Literally and figuratively. I found a little more freedom. A little more hope. A little more peace. I know I haven’t fully “arrived” and will continue to struggle with doubt, shame and fear. But, the moments shared with these women were so human. So honest. I am grateful."

-michelle

"Pasture Retreat far exceeded the expectations built up in my mind. I knew I was tired and in need of refreshment, but it was so much more! In a very loud and distracted world, we often fail to just BE. Listening is crucial for the health of our hearts, and in the sitting still and listening to others share, as well as my own sharing, I awakened to the voice of my good Shepherd in new ways. Psalm 23 has an entirely new meaning."

-Cathy

"If you need a safe place to "just be", Pasture Retreat is that place. Bekah is very gracious and offers an atmosphere that is so needed for women to come and be vulnerable about their journey. I loved being at Pasture and getting time with other ladies who seem to share the same basic need; to be heard and known. I highly recommend!"

SPIRITUAL DIRECTION

SPIRITUAL DIRECTION

Spiritual Direction is a co-listening, contemplative space created for individuals to journey into deeper relationship with God, in the accompaniment of a Christian Spiritual Director.

Are you wanting to integrate biblical information about God to intimacy with God?

  • Christian spiritual direction is for the brave individual who wants a safe space to notice and respond to the Trinity's invitations in their everyday life and could benefit from a spiritual director who encourages them to continue listening to God's voice first.
  • Bridge contemplation and play through rhythms such as prayer, listening, reflecting truth, asking open-ended questions, experiencing delight, expressing creativity, paying attention to how God is drawing you closer to His heart, and taking courageous action from a posture of discernment.
  • As a certified spiritual director, my role is to co-journey and co-listen with the directee, while always relying on God as the real director. My role is to be a nonjudgmental listener, a fellow sojourner who mines interiorly, shines a light, and offers grace and space to connect the spiritual dots. 
  • I do this by offering a warm space to illuminate how God is moving in your daily routine, encourage you when the journey is hard, and empower you to come home to the One who is always with you.
  • Spiritual direction is a permission-giving invitation to receive God's love, listen to the Shepherd's voice, and trust the Holy Spirit's mysterious ways. 
  • During a monthly 50-minute spiritual direction session (virtually or in-person) a directee has abundant room to be heard, re-define faith language, pray, and rest in a God who sees, loves, and is FOR you. 

My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow me. - John 10:27

The task of the spiritual director is to be positioned, like a campfire in the wilderness, welcoming sojourners from all corners of life to stop, relax, and yarn for a while. A place where tired bodies and spirits are warmed by the fire and refreshed. A friendly atmosphere where stories of the road are shared among travellers. The job of a spiritual director is to keep the fire burning because one never knows when a traveller will come to sit. It doesn't matter where on the journey the traveller has been exploring, or how long they have been walking, if they come in peace to sit on a log by the campfire, they are welcome.

“Bekah Pogue is a rare breed. Somewhere along her beautiful and broken path she learned the magic of listening, and has turned it into art. From someone who has a been striving all my life, it has been refreshing to lay my weapons down and simply rest and be heard on her porch, hot tea in one hand, tissue in the other. Thank you Bekah for showing me that Jesus doesn’t need for me to work so hard. He is simply asking me to lie down and rest.”

“Spiritual direction gave me the safe space to really connect with the Trinity and my innermost emotions. It helped me allow myself to open up to the darkness that I had buried deep inside for many years. Through spiritual direction I was able to see the light that Grace offers my soul. I will forever be grateful for the chance to learn what it feels like to forgive myself and receive God’s grace and love.”

Oh, hello sweet soul! 

In 2017 I founded Pasture Experience to offer a level playing field for the everyday soul to experience Christ-centric grace and space.

I am passionate about turning talking and listening upside down. Living with congruence is my heartbeat and I count it sacred work to create warm spaces for women to integrate contemplation, connection, and creativity.

My Training/ Experiences include:

If you find yourself here, perhaps you’re wanting a safe, hospitable space for your soul to be at home?

Well, come!
