Spiritual Renewal Retreat

October  11th -15th, 2023

Michigan’s Upper Peninsula

An opportunity to Retreat & Renew…

How would you like to spend 5 days isolated in nature with nothing to do but deepen your love of spirit, prayer, and meditation, all while looking deep inside yourself for the answers you seek?

Are you going through a crisis or a big change?

Are you a small business owner, spiritual entrepreneur, Coach, Teacher, Healer or Helper?

Would you like the time and space to Ignite, Reignite, or Deepen your spiritual practice?

Whatever the issue…

  • You feel stuck
  • Your business isn’t growing
  • You feel an inner calling
  • You have anxiety
  • You have a great life and just want it to be even better

The Spiritual Renewal Retreat can help!

You see, there is a solution to the perceived problem and that solution is more Love.


  • Love yourself more
  • Be more Loving
  • Open to receive more Love

You will also leave the retreat with the tools you need to continue to learn and grow while filling your life with Joy.

At the retreat …

You will learn to meditate and leave with the confidence that you know how to do it right. And you will be able to use this practice for the rest of your life.

  • You will learn how Let Go & Forgive.

  • You will practice Prayer and become comfortable with it if you are not already.

  • You will practice Self Inquiry and look within. What am I ?

  • You will learn the most powerful spiritual tool of them all.

The best part about spiritual retreats is how much love you feel and how profound and enjoyable silence becomes.

You will be a different person after the retreat, and if you keep meditating, wonderful changes will occur. The first thing you will notice is that the small things stop bothering you.

This will be an opportunity for you to Let Go of all of the junk and Surrender to what is so you can finally have Peace.

If you have never been to a retreat, it is different than a seminar or a 3 day event with a bunch of speakers or even a week with Tony Robbins!

At the Spiritual Renewal Retreat, you will do the deepest of work in a light hearted and supportive environment with a like minded group of people.

Maybe the best part… you will find that what you seek is within you… within you is a store of confidence and power that you did not know you had.

The Retreat will start with a healthy meal at 6pm Wednesday, Oct 11th and will end at 11am Sunday, Oct 15th with Brunch.

There will be eleven spiritual sessions that will include:

  • Meditation
  • Prayer
  • Music
  • Sound Healing
  • Spiritual Movie Night
  • The Love Tap

and more..

Plus healthy meals cooked with love.

You will be able to receive one on one sound healing session with Tammy, who has over 20 years experience with sound healing. She even works by donation, so you can all receive the work.

You will also be able to receive a Reconnective Healing session with me for $100 – a fifty dollar discount.

After the retreat you will feel truly Renewed.

You will discover a sense of Deep Peace and Silence you never knew was within you.

If you use the tools you learned, and make them a habit, you will make lasting changes and life will get better and better and better in every way.

You will leave the Retreat with…

You will learn to meditate and leave with the confidence that you know how to do it right. And you will be able to use this practice for the rest of your life.

  • New level of confidence with meditation.

  • New level of peace and how to maintain it.

  • New understanding of silence and how to practice it.

  • New tools for Letting Go and Forgiveness.

  • New best friends.

About Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and Garden Grove Retreat Center

The Upper Peninsula of Michigan is a unique and beautiful place and the Garden Peninsula is a special place in the Upper Peninsula.

You would never just drive through or end up there unless you intended to.

Garden MI, is on the Garden Peninsula on Lake Michigan. There are less than 1,000 people on the Garden Peninsula, one restaurant, a state park, and the retreat center.

The state park is a Ghost Town from 1870, which is a short drive from the retreat center. It’s super cool.

There is also a natural spring called “The Big Spring” that is a 25 minute drive from the retreat center.

Garden Grove Retreat Center and Lodging was a Catholic retreat center for 70 years. It was

donated to the city and is now open to all.

The retreat center is not fancy; it is comfortable and has something money can’t buy: the spiritual energy of 70 years of worship and retreats.

Here’s What People Are Saying About David’s Events:


I attended the past 2 meditation retreats and found them to be so restorative. I was able to free myself of the busyness of life and completely clear my mind.

I left feeling peaceful and connected to spirit – a feeling that stayed with me even after I returned home. I look forward to this special time to reconnect every year.

Thank you David!

Stacy McNeil

I attended last year’s meditation at the beautiful Shasta resort.

I let go of worries and concerns and allowed myself to remain open. I was looking for answers looking for peace inside and at the retreat is where I finally got it.

I found my purpose, I know who I am and what I’m supposed to do in life. I love myself completely and have love for everyone.

The peaceful nature and kindness of staff and other people attending all contribute to that peacefulness.

The meditations were wonderful and the music segment hit my soul like never before. It is truly an experience I will never forget.

Thank you Celeste Lovaas 🙂
