Soul Care Intensive



A Soul Care Intensive is a 5-day private retreat where issues of faith, life, work and relationships converge for conversation, prayer and spiritual guidance. The Soul Care Intensive combines guided conversations, pastoral counseling and spiritual direction to offer the participants a blended retreat of depth, rest, evaluation and God’s blessing.

During the retreat, participants are guided on a 360 degree walk around the most important issues in their lives. It is a time to evaluate the trajectory of their life and make adjustments.

Each soul care intensive is designed for each participant and they are not cookie-cutter, program driven, agenda-led experiences. The participants set the issues that will be discussed by sharing their own story, journey, struggle and issues.

These times are experiences where God’s grace and healing converge offering renewed hope, spiritual passion and companionship on the journey.

Market-place and ministry-place leaders find that particular issues faced in their own spheres of influence are explored giving insight into what is happening in the personal life of the leader and their hearts.

Here is a sampling of conversations we explore:

  • Your personal story and spiritual formation

  • Spiritual growth

  • Spiritual vitality

  • Disappointment in the journey

  • Desires and longings

  • Experiencing God together

  • Marriage issues

My husband and I were in a rough place in our marriage and ministry. The rigors of daily life on top of the constant strain of leadership for 21 years in a church setting wore us down to a pretty thin place. We arrived at the Potter’s Inn tired, worn, wanting desperately a place to rest and seek guidance. We received what we wanted and were embraced with love, care, and direction. Walking the prayer paths surrounded by astounding beauty, we let rest sink deeply into our souls and got us to a place of quiet and peace. Our Soul Care Intensive set the course and trajectory for our next season of life and ministry together. We are forever grateful for Potter’s Inn and the work they do to restore the souls of people like us, while humbly guiding and teaching a new way of living a sustainable life.
