Why retreat?

Retreat is the deliberate act of moving away, withdrawing. Taking time to retreat and rest, we begin to see how to transform our lives.
We start to see new ways of seeing and being; harder
 to discover in noisy busy places.

We begin to see how we can more easily accept and value ourselves, and others.

We begin to experience the opportunity to grow from that point.

Engaging with the natural world around us, and contrasting silence, uncluttered space, with the usual distractions, we are opened to new insights.
Quiet and solitary reflection recharges us, for a refreshed return to the active life.

"Self- creativity is born of honest scrutiny and prepare
dness for change. Learning to be by oneself, with oneself, is sometimes uncomfortable, but can be a route to greater insight and wisdom...enabling us to discern the right pathway for our lives.
A peaceful place to reflect and be, allows us space to stretch out and grow."
Tina Jefferies, 'How to Find Peacefulness' (Published: Hodder & Stoughton, 2013)
