Our facility sits on a tranquil salt marsh on the outskirts of Brunswick, GA and is bordered by a tidal creek flowing from the Turtle River. Egrets, Snowy, Little and Great White, populate our marsh, along with dozens of other species of bird. The egrets are solitary by day, but roost together at night, seeking safety in their unique community. Hence, our name, Egret’s Roost.
Your visit will be a venture of five days, beginning with lunch on Monday and concluding with lunch on Friday. The offerings of your stay will be uniquely tailored to your needs and wishes. We provide consultation, life-coaching and spiritual direction throughout your stay at a pace which is casual and reflective.
Egret’s Roost is a Validated Ministry of Savannah Presbytery, Presbyterian Church (USA).

He has been extensively trained through Presbyterian Disaster Assistance in Critical Incident Stress Management (ICISF), and is a member of the International Coach Federation.

Together, they form a dynamic team which will assist you in discerning your needs and beginning the path toward healing and wholeness.
