nour·ish is our theme for 2024. It is defined as:
- provide food or other substances necessary for growth, health, and good condition.
- the action of nourishing someone or something.
The word “nourish” comes from the Latin “nutrire” meaning “to feed, to cherish “. Nourishing mind, body and soul is vitally important to the health and balance of our lives. When we take the time to intentionally nurture our physical and spiritual wellbeing, we create space for positive things to flow into our lives.
Fourteen things we can do to intentionally nourish our mind, body and soul (and we can do all these things at the Sorrento Centre):
Walk the property, take a program, breathe deeply, be aware of all that is available to you. Do this intentionally.
Fresh organic produce from our farm and locally supplied meat are available at our Dining Hall.
Move your body
Hiking, biking, swimming, walking, yoga and more.
Get out in nature
Sorrento Centre is blessed with many aspects of nature – explore the options!
Voice your emotions and thoughts without judgment for reflection and growth.
Exercise your creativity
Everyone is creative! The way you dress, cook, garden etc. Revel in your creativity and feel the benefits that come with getting lost in the flow!
Join in fellowship and community, play games, splash and sing.
Practice acts of kindness
There’s lots of opportunities to practice acts of kindness onsite. Children’s programming will embrace this.
Listen to inspiring music
Excellent music leaders every week not to mention our talented guests.
Connect with people
Reconnect with friends and meet new ones.
Fresh air has a habit of bringing us to a deep sleep.
Take a break from technology
Sorrento Centre does have WIFI but sometimes, it’s just nice to turn it all off. It’s easier to do it here than at home. Why not give yourself permission?
Take a break from the kids
Registering for children and youth summer programming means parents can take a well-deserved break. The new 11 – 16-year-old program will mirror adult programming with a variety of themed weeks.
10 K for your car and even slower for you. There’s no need to rush here.
Nourish your relationship with the Creator
From daily and evening worship to communing with Mother Nature, Sorrento Centre provides the space for you to feel the presence of the One who loves you.
