RETREAT (noun & verb):
- A place of privacy or safety affording peace and quiet
- An act of moving back or withdrawing
Why go on retreat?
There are many reasons; they allow you to pull back, get inspired, find perspective, become spacious, detox and connect with yourself and others.
Time on retreat is different, fluid, there is no more rush. You find a space where you can give yourself time – to listen, to observe, to connect with yourself, your surroundings – a time to just BE rather than do.
Each person on retreat will have a different reason to be here, different expectations and different life experiences, however, everyone needs to unload, reflect and clear out their mind and body from time to time and a retreat provides that opportunity.
You will leave retreat feeling lightened, clearer, recharged, refreshed and more present. This new perspective will help you to make positive changes in your everyday life and can kickstart new, healthy habits that become lifestyle changes.
Most of all a retreat gives you time and space to rest, rejuvenate, contemplate, reflect and listen; allowing you to reconnect with your true self, without labels, distraction, time demands or external pressures.
