Retreat

“Retreat means to withdraw. In all ages, people have sought secluded places that provide the opportunity for rest and reflection, silence and prayer.

In a culture where activity and efficiency are prized, we often forget the simple and obvious: human life is a commute between work and rest. In order to give, it is necessary for us to receive. Only if we allow ourselves to be loved we are able to love.

In the retreat, we put work, calendars and ambitions aside. We give ourselves time to meet ourselves and our spiritual needs. In the Christian tradition, the retreat has been a place where people put their lives before Jesus Christ, what he has done and who he is. The center of the conversation is with God and myself. In the stillness, we allow something to happen in the depths of our lives.”
