Through retreats and spiritual direction, Pasture Experience creates safe, hospitable spaces for your soul to be at home.
Inspired by Psalm 23, pasture is a metaphor for the congruent spiritual, emotional, and creative journey with God. There will be seasons of rest, of still waters, dark valleys, and the need for comfort. Throughout every moment, He is with us, inviting us to His table to feast and celebrate.
Pasture represents your individual journey; a vast, wide-open meadow with ample room to explore, work, and live. No hierarchy. Simply a level playing field.
Pasture offers a safe, open space to listen, respond, and delight in the Shepherd's presence, whether alone, or in community with kindred souls.
Pasture was birthed by a dream for a beautiful, third space, untethered to a specific church or denomination, where women gather for the purpose of experiencing God’s with-ness, wherever they find themselves. For the everyday soul to receive grace and space that is rooted in the love of God, the humanity of Jesus, and the mystery of the Spirit.
In 2017, Pasture Experience began as monthly gatherings in an antique mall and has since focused into our present-day offerings including retreats, Christian spiritual direction, and poetry & home design services.
Psalm 23, The Message
GOD, my shepherd!
I don’t need a thing.
You have bedded me down in lush meadows,
you find me quiet pools to drink from.
True to your word,
you let me catch my breath
and send me in the right direction.
Even when the way goes through
I’m not afraid
when you walk at my side.
Your trusty shepherd’s crook
makes me feel secure.
You serve me a six-course dinner
right in front of my enemies.
You revive my drooping head;
my cup brims with blessing.
Your beauty and love chase after me
every day of my life.
I’m back home in the house of GOD
for the rest of my life.
