More about our retreats

Our Dare to Be Still women's retreats are hosted and led by Clarice Aeby and held at varying locations in Oregon's Willamette Valley.  

We begin with a group gathering on Saturday morningWe'll enjoy a meal together as Clarice shares biblical insights and personal stories that you can incorporate, or not, into your own private time with the Lord.


Then you'll spend the rest of the weekend in stillness with God, praying, reading, journaling, worshipping... whatever you feel led to do. The retreat ends at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday afternoon with a coming back together where you may choose to share what God has spoken to you.

The registration cost includes your own private room, two meals, and study materials.

What others are saying

The set-up met my need for security, and knowing that other Christians are also determinedly seeking God nearby made this something I want to return to.”


This weekend the Lord talked to me about slowing my pace, how I’ve had the tendency to use work and technology as a distraction instead of looking to my Father for help… I am like a prodigal daughter this weekend, realizing how very little I know about a Father who loves me more than I can fathom.”
