A retreat is essentially time away from our normal lives. It gives us the break we need to be able to escape from chores and responsibilities so that we can focus on ourselves. Often retreats involve improving health and fitness, which is difficult to do when you have numerous things to take care of in your work, family and personal lives. So it is about giving us space to be able to reflect on, heal the part of us that is most in need and make the necessary changes to give ourselves a better life.
A retreat is not a new concept. For centuries many different cultures have been using some form of a retreat to learn about and understand themselves more, to find inner peace and spark spiritual healing and inner growth.
