- BASIC Bootcamp weekend - September 2019Thu, Sep 12Stiperstones Chapel & RetreatSep 12, 2019, 4:30 PM – Sep 15, 2019, 8:30 PMStiperstones Chapel & Retreat , Stiperstones, Shrewsbury SY5 0LZ, UKThis is not a retreat about the “seven things a man ought to do to be a nicer guy.” It is a four-day quest into the recovery of a man’s masculine soul, the release of a man’s heart—his passions and his true nature—all given him by God.
To escape from the busyness of life, work, family and church commitments seems such a luxury in this modern earthly world, however even the journey out to Stiperstones through the Shropshire countryside seems like a fitting start to this long weekend with all its natural beauty. The peace of the countryside surrounding the church with sheep & lambs has your neighbors immediately started to release the stress and pressure from me. The small chapel added to the intimate atmosphere with Rob and all the guys very friendly but not over-friendly. The Basic video material follows the Wild at Heart book with John Eldridge and the Ransomed Heart team-leading and drawing you into an exciting journey of self-discovery which exposes your wounds, your masks, your agreements and the subtle lies the world has told you and that you have believed. I found each session riveting and what was good was the quiet times after to give chance to reflect, unravel and apply to your own story. There is also two afternoons of free time we spent in the local beautiful countryside. I love forests so to go and spend some time attempting archery followed by conversation around a campfire with a brew was very relaxing and enjoyable. If you're looking for a closer journey with Jesus Christ and want more out of life I thoroughly recommend the Basic experience with Rob has a great facilitator and friend.
