Why Retreat?

Reconnecting to What Matters Most

The pressure of modern life can easily trick us into believing that we have to keep doing more….faster. But our bodies, hearts, spirits, even our minds are often sending another message – sometimes subconsciously - that we actually need to focus our energy on what matters most, rather than scattering ourselves. Retreats, a time-honored tradition from virtually every human culture, offer a chance to “pull back” into ourselves, giving us time off the hamster wheel of life’s responsibilities to reflect on what’s inside us.
