THE SPLENDOR OF RETREATS
by Jim Sharon, Ed.D.
Having derived so much value from my participation in both personal and group retreats for many years, I enthusiastically decided this year to “share the wealth” with others. Retreats provide an extended period of time away from the numerous distractions of everyday life, where you can delight in the wonder of your senses and be in awe of nature. Besides getting rejuvenated, you gain a very special opportunity to clarify what is most important to you in your life. During the retreat process, you encounter core questions, such as:
- Who am I underneath all of my roles and persona?
- How can I be more fully alive?
- What am I truly called to do that would serve others and deeply satisfy and fulfill me?
Retreats that I facilitate are designed to create energy and vitality, including awakening and refreshing the senses. These retreats evoke new insights and perspectives; they deepen your sense of meaning and offer clear future direction. While working with a wide variety of tailored practices, you receive a reflection of your inner beauty and power. Upon completing the retreat, you are likely to feel eager to “dive headlong” into life and to savor your experiences!
