About Us

Life can seem like a repetitive cycle of waking up, eating, working and sleeping. The daily grind can often leave us feeling disconnected and empty. That’s why Still Waters Retreat Center was created, so the greater Austin area has a place to retreat from the ordinary, to reconnect with God, themselves, and others in Creation and to return feeling at one, reconnected, and restored with others on their spiritual journey. 

OUR IDENTITY. 

Who we are.
