Oberammergau is a little town in Germany with an amazing story. Many years ago, in 1632, Oberammergau was on the cusp the Black Plague.

THE SELAH STORY
The concept of 'Selah' was birthed Lisa Tarzia's personal experience. As the Executive Director of Mission Travel, Lisa has always been passionate about travel that transforms. Through her own journey, 'selah-moments' she experienced were life changing. This drew her to a place where she wanted to provide opportunities for Christians to have these moments.
"Escaping from the busyness of life and making an intentional choice to stop and go deeper in faith is what I want to create," says Lisa.
Selah provides these opportunities through retreats, workshops and travel. Custom made for the Australian Christian, the heart behind Selah is for people to grow and be transformed.
The power of pausing and reflecting is incredible. As A.W. Tozer writes 'More spiritual progress can be made in one short moment of speechless silence in the awesome presence of God than in years of mere study.'

“I’ve had a few ‘selah-moments’ in my life”says Lisa, “but two are very much in the forefront of my mind. The first was at the beach not long after my mum had died. I was 21 and grieving deeply. In the moment of being still in God’s creation, the vastness of the ocean and the rhythm of the waves crashing on the shore, I felt the tangible presence of God comforting me and letting me know that she was okay. It is something I have not forgotten,” says Lisa.
