Blog #10 – The Treat of a Retreat

October 13, 2010

When was the last time you took a couple of days off to regroup, relax and restore the soul? My experience with a recent retreat was just that. No computer – no TV – no radio – no newspaper – no driving.

By letting go of the broader world, it is easier to get into the inner world. Reflective time offers richness, peace and perspective. The encroachment on the soul offered by the brash bearers of bad news and the pace of daily life that accompanies home and car ownership takes a back seat.

Our lives confront us with continuous stimuli. On retreat one unveils a richness and fullness in the Spirit often overlooked when we are caught in the vortex of our busy days. Returning to a retreat atmosphere restores balance and belief in a greater and gentler reality.
