Pasture Experience Founder, Spiritual Director, Poet & Home Re-Designer

Oh, hello sweet soul! Well, come!

I founded Pasture Experience, inspired by Psalm 23, to offer practical ways to integrate listening and experience soul nourishment in your everyday life. Here you are invited to connect your spiritual, relational, and creative journey.

In addition to being a wife and boy mama, I am in my sweet spot serving as a certified spiritual director, hosting and facilitating retreats, and re-designing homes & writing poetry in the Creativity Barn.

Originally from Huntington Beach, CA, our family now resides just outside of Nashville, TN. We are most alive among rolling green hills, exploring local sights and eateries, and living out philoxenia to all who cross our paths: the love of strangers, and act of eager hospitality and welcome.


 "...for you are with me..."

PSALM 23

SPIRITUAL DIRECTION

SPIRITUAL DIRECTION

Are you yearning to experience congruency between biblical head knowledge and a deeper participation with the Divine's intimate invitations?

If so, spiritual direction will feel like coming home. 

Spiritual Direction is when a trained spiritual director co-listens and journeys with a brave individual who desires a deeper connection and intimate experience with God.

During a 60-minute spiritual direction session (virtually or in-person) you have ample room to process, explore, and wrestle with a God who sees, knows, and is FOR you, in the company of a trained spiritual director.

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.”

PASTURE RETREATS

PASTURE RETREAT


Image

Are you looking for connection? A welcoming space to be fully heard and unconditionally loved?

Join us for a soul-nourishing weekend!

Pasture is an intimate listening retreat that journeys women through Psalm 23 for the purpose of connecting with God, themselves, and kindred sojourners.

Weekend Retreats (Friday evening - Sunday morning) are held in our Nashville, TN home where I host & facilitate in our living room, my husband prepares seasonal meals in our kitchen, and our boys set the table for connection and celebration. We love opening our humble abode and hearts to you! 

Retreats are capped at no more than 10 women (or smaller due to COVID safety).

*Lodging is on your own. Hotels & Airbnb recommendations available.

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

"My 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 heart 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!"

-Kelli
