The Middle Retreat is an evolution of the Run & Refocus events which found traction in the years leading up to COVID. Given the requests for these events to be re-established, The Middle will be offering a limited amount of retreats each year. The intent of a retreat is to break away from the demands of every day life, spend time in nature, engage in active rest through walking, running or mountain biking, relax and enjoy quiet time as well as eat great good. Included in each retreat are facilitated sessions led by Travis Gale, founder of The Middle. These sessions simply aim to create space for you to work through a few insights which will equip you for the terrain you are currently navigating, as well as ensure you get the opportunity to ask yourself some questions and commit to living intentionally as you return to your context.
