Are you ready to embark on a transformative journey that nurtures your body, mind, and spirit? This year’s ANU Life Global Ministries Retreat, themed “Consecration,” is set in the serene surroundings of Lake Tiorati in Harriman State Park, in upstate New York. This retreat offers a unique camping opportunity to connect deeply with the Creator, embrace holiness, and explore being set apart. Drawing inspiration from the ANU Way, our activities are designed to enrich your spiritual and physical well-being. At ANU retreats we aim to provide immersive experiences that are skill building and offers solutions alike.


Engaging Activities: Participate in activities designed to build resilience, foster teamwork, and ignite your adventurous spirit. In the past we have offered survival skills, yoga, tantric healing, sound healing, and more! This year we are scheduling an excursion to the International African Arts Festival in Brooklyn, NY.

Natural Surroundings: This year is a rustic camping experience (see Rustic Camping Basics video). Immerse yourself in the teachings of the ANU Way, which emphasizes the connection to nature and the universe. Learn how to harness the energy of the natural world to enhance your spiritual and physical well-being.

Communal Learning: Share and gain knowledge through communal activities. All retreats include fireside poetry and song, which provided a space for emotional release and clarity.

Spiritual Growth: Engage in edifying builds during Sabbath fellowships led by Chief Yuya. Witness rites of passage events that promote self-determination and personal mastery. These rituals are pivotal in helping you define your identity and purpose.

2022 Winter Solstice Retreat

Warriors, Healers, Builders

For our 2002 Winter Retreat, we camped in cabins in North Florida among the picturesque backdrop of centuries old Spanish moss covered Oaks and quiet lakes. We used this space in time to focus on preparedness and begin to traverse the road to one accord. We communed as well as made honest efforts demonstrate methods of obtaining drinking water in wild. Did we get there? Follow us on Social media and find out.

2022 Summer Solstice Retreat

Be Inspired

This summer we took our seasonal leave of the rigors of the world and communed in nature. Our 6-day retreat commenced on July 7th at Lakeside Retreats in Raleigh, NC was just what the Creator ordered. Thirty Anubians together inspiring one another through activities, building and sharing space. This time around members taught and learned from one another – fishing, axe and knife play, archery, boxing, and much more to be inspired.

Members enjoyed horseback riding, fishing, paddle boats, hikes among many other communal activities aimed at feeding the spirit.
