Welcome to Serenity Retreats

We are so happy you have found us. Serenity is on a mission to help women reach the healing they are searching for, to assure them IT is possible, and provide encouragement that the opportunity for a bright future IS ahead. We care deeply about the pain, and the stories surrounding the pain, of each person who walks through the doors of our retreat. We have personal experience with grief that comes from loss, sickness, the past, betrayal, and more. This experience has created a team that is passionate about creating an experience where transformation, purpose, and change can begin. We believe women carry an amazing responsibility of influence and impact in our communities, families, friendships, and workplaces. And we believe that the best gift you can give to yourself is healing.

Serenity Retreats focuses on giving each guest the opportunity to get away from the chaos of life, renew and strengthen their MIND, BODY, and SOUL for a complete and overall approach to long-lasting healing.

We take the best of various types of retreats and merge them together making Serenity Retreats a One-of-a-Kind experience. In fact, there are no other women’s retreats quite like Serenity. We think you will agree.

Intensive Counseling - Pillar 1 - Serenity Retreats

Intensive

With 15 hours of small group intensive sessions, guests can process through significantly more issues than the traditional counseling methods of 1 hour a week. Guests will receive 15 weeks of group work in only a couple of days. In addition, the group setting has proven to be a wonderful tool for healing, as women are able to connect and find empathy with others working through healing as well.

Each of our group facilitators have been trained and certified to lead group sessions through the reputable Light University’s Christian Leadership Counseling Program.
Curriculum - Pillar 2 - Serenity Retreats

Curriculum

Serenity Retreats believes that healing is an ongoing process that includes multiple facets, but that the most complete healing comes when we incorporate faith and allow the healing power of the LORD to do its work. There is a direct correlation between progress and faith. We have seen this, experienced it firsthand, and believe it with all our hearts. Therefore, Serenity uses Scripture and prayer as key elements as we work through the curriculum to healing during group sessions.
Wellness - Pillar 3 - Serenity Retreats

Wellness

The body, mind, and soul are all intricately woven together. Therefore, in effort to achieve the best versions of ourselves we must carefully tend to each. During the Retreat, guests can expect nothing less than the best when it comes to food, accommodations, and enrichment activities. Our in-house Chef creates beautiful, healthy meals each day. Guests will also have opportunity to participate in therapeutic wellness activities, such as paddle boarding, bicycling, massage, restorative prayerful stretching, and much more.
All-Inclusive - Pillar 4 - Serenity Retreats

All-Inclusive

Serenity Retreats wants to pamper each guest with the most luxurious accommodations. When booking a healing retreat at Serenity you can expect to receive, included in the cost, a beautifully furnished bedroom in a pristine beach home, all meals and snacks prepared by our talented chef, and access to beach chairs, bikes, and paddleboards. In addition, each guest will be scheduled to receive an individual massage and partake in enrichment activities such as beach bonfires, sunrise breakfast, and more. Guests will also leave with gifts as tokens of the healing experience. Our hearts’ desire is for our guests to experience love, comfort, and serenity from the moment they enter until the moment they depart.

This healing retreat was phenomenal! I felt pampered, loved and cared for. The staff went over and above in every aspect of the time spent. We laughed, we cried, we experienced a depth that brought release and healing in many ways! The food was exceptional! The accommodations and beach was just what I needed. I highly recommend this faith-based program.

Truly a life-changing experience. The luxurious accommodations, the five course meals, the beach location, it was like I stayed at the Four Seasons but better! Mallory and her incredible team thought of every detail. I formed new friendships, I filled my spiritual cup and I left with a new set of “tools” for how to move forward in my journey thanks to the incredible work done by Ana. I cannot say enough about this retreat! I pray for every women to have the opportunity to experience what these retreats have to offer! Mallory is doing incredible work.

Amazing experience! I attended a Serenity retreat October 27-30, 2022 and had an amazing experience! I signed up for the retreat with a broken heart and so much pain from an abusive relationship I ended. I met 9 lovely Christian women from all walks of life, all with unique issues seeking healing from traumatic life events. No one knew each other, yet within the first night the retreat is designed so that we easily connected and started bonding through our vulnerable stories. The Serenity staff all uniquely qualified to help us with their gifting. From simple yet luxurious accommodations to 5 course gourmet meals prepared on site, yoga/breathe work on the beach and breathtaking bonfires as the sun set, the experience left you pampered and well cared for. The spirit of God was working to heal hearts and lift us in His light through everyone during each group session. I learned to lament and the last evening we shared a prayerful worship session where I could finally, after months of agony, release my tears. Jesus precense was in that space comforting me, holding me in my pain. I experienced healing. I left the retreat with a new hope, a lighter heart and new friends. I truly felt seen, valued and loved. I highly recommend attending a Serenity retreat. You will be delighted by the support, comfort, care and love you will receive.Lori Beckman

Through a generous gift, I went to the Serenity retreat. I appreciate with all my heart this opportunity to express my grief in a group of ladies whose sole purpose was to care for me in my experience of trauma. You reflected back to me as a very compassionate loving group. You, the Serenity Team, are such a fun and special group of women ~ a professional group of Holy Spirit led women who love God and care about emotional, physical and spiritual healing for women in trauma. You work like a well-oiled machine, phenomenal as you place such high value on healing. Since grief starts in the body, every activity planned, the pampering, the care for spirit, soul, body, the beauty, created a safe space to learn to breathe again. Thank you!

Serenity is a place to go for healing, reflection, and restoration. It is a reminder that you are a daughter of the King. The amenities are top notch…so many extra special touches. The food is incredible and housing can’t be beat. There is NO location like 30A. Most importantly, there are a group of women who have prayed for you that are waiting to pour into you. And there are a groups of women that you will be a part of who will minister to you and reframe what is happening/has happened in your life. Serenity is a beautiful place to do hard work. HIGHLY recommend!! ❤️

If I could give 10 stars I would! The retreat is exactly as described on the website. The ladies on staff are wonderful, genuine sweet souls. The accommodations are gorgeous… and the food is delicious and prepared so eloquently. I truly enjoyed everything the retreat offered. If you’re on the fence about signing up for a future retreat, just do it…you will be so glad you did.

Thank you Serenity Retreats for giving me the tools to navigate this season with wisdom, face the healing process with courage, and to upgrade my life! I knew I had to make a decision about who I wanted to be despite the pain and heartbreak and disappointment. I was done, broken, angry, proud, I had to face the worst of myself too. I realized I had a lot out of work to do! I am beyond grateful to have attended this retreat, made dear friends, and made time to give my heart some rest.Trauma recovery progresses so much faster when we choose community, when we ask for help, when we do the work! Life after the storm and beauty from ashes--the retreat gave me the holy space to be honest and find hope again. God has given me so many desires of my heart despite all of the loss.My story isn’t over yet and I know there’s so many adventures ahead, so much goodness, so many friendships to enjoy and perhaps one day I will remarry and get to enjoy the love of a man who chooses to really live and loves to laugh as much as I do. Life may never be easy but it is always worthwhile when we trust Him.I highly recommend this retreat to anyone and told a pastor at my church that every woman at the church needs to go to this retreat! The leadership are wonderful women of God who allow the Holy Spirit to lead. Just go and watch Jesus work!

I loved being taken care of and not having to lift a finger the entire time I was there. The beach and surrounding beauty were just what my soul needed.The group discussions were heavy and very much geared toward overcoming trama. They were productive.Mostly I felt so loved and taken care of.

This experience was more than I could have imagined! First of all, the home is breathtaking. Beachfront serenity from every view. Floor to ceiling windows and large gulf-facing balconies make this quite a stunning scene to simply be, whether praying, writing in my journal, or just trying to center and calm my mind. Then there's the ladies. These women opened their hearts to our whole group and truly shared their pain and suffering. And then they listened. And it was by sharing that we were able to form a bond, sympathize/empathize, and receive each other's friendship while remembering to lean on the Lord for everything big and small. Daily group sessions with Ana were eye-opening and healing. And all the fun activities they planned helped us enjoy the whole weekend, giving laughs amid the tears. Alissa was a great fitness leader! Can you say catered meals?? Felt truly pampered and spoiled having chefs come in and prepare meals for our whole group. Mallory made sure to provide things that made us feel happy, cozy, and at ease. From the cozy throws, to our personal fav drinks, to the personalized welcome gifts...this was one of the biggest blessings I received this year. I'd go back over and over again if I could :) And Maggie took some great pictures of it all for us to remember. Sign up for the next one - take time to take care of YOU.

When I decided to go to Serenity Retreats I had no idea what to expect. The only thing I was sure of was that I needed urgently to make a pause from my busy and he hectic life; I needed to spend some time working on myself and my spiritual needs. Once I got there I was blown away by every detail. There was no room for me to worry about anything in that special place. Everything from the meals, my bedroom, The bed I slept in, every minute spent in counseling and in prayer. Every little detail had been beautifully crafted to give each of us the time and space we desperately needed to heal. Every experience in Serenity Retreats absolutely surpassed my expectations. I will forever be grateful to the staff of Serenity Retreats. Thank you all for being a wonderful vessel in the hands of the Father to bless so many!
