Retreats allow us to physically and mentally get away from our daily roles and routines, literally have a ‘re-treat’, a break”. They are an opportunity to have space and time to recharge our batteries, away from the busyness and our usual distractions, in a supportive and beautiful environment. We have time to reflect and focus on ourselves, our thoughts, and feelings which can then help us to regain perspective on our lives and give clarity to make day to day decisions. The experience can empower and inspire us to gain new ideas to practise or to think about in order to reconnect to our inner selves and our spiritual lives bringing more calm and fulfilment.
The focus of the retreats is on silence – The retreats are guided, with an inspirational talk by the lead speaker at the beginning of the day followed by silence (no talking) for 3.5 hours, and ending the day with sharing of reflections and insights. Participants are able to walk, rest, meditate, pray, read, draw and paint, amongst other possibilities. Each person has a unique experience of the retreat according to their needs and priorities.
