What is a Retreat? A retreat is a type of renewal with a group of individuals to take time to “be still”, connect with others and form bonds, and contemplate their life. Many times, you go to “work” on one or more things in your life.
Retreats are usually an overnight, several days, or even a week getaway experience. They can be held at a Retreat Center, Villa, Airbnb, or Campground. Generally, in locations where they can take time to connect in nature, talk with others, meditate, experience spirituality (not all are spiritual), and have fun. It is important to have unstructured time set aside in your retreat schedules to allow attendees time to rest, relax, and rejuvenate.
Why are retreats important? The word retreat is derived from the Latin verb, “to pull back.” We live in a fast-paced world with so much activity, noise, and technology, that it is so important to recharge, and pull back from the world.
When we give ourselves permission to “pull back”, many times we become more inspired, find more space in our minds to think, and detox from technology, cell phones, Wi-Fi, and T.V.
