Going on a retreat is about escaping the strains of everyday life and taking the time to focus on yourself. When we become too used to looking outwards for our well-being, we can lose touch with our internal wisdom and innate balance. Going on a retreat encourages us to experience the aliveness of the present moment, where we can find freedom from our limited perspectives and discover that wholeness is always and already here.
Sure, you can optimize conditions in your own life to create a non-negotiable writing routine or yoga practice. But if you’re trying to squeeze time into an already full schedule, creating those conditions at home can take years. Establishing them on a retreat is easier. As opposed to having to fight through your routine to form a creative schedule you go on retreat and get encouraged by the example of others. You go back home and re-establish your life in a new way.
