“If you wish to advance in any sphere, the best way is to take a retreat.” ~ Pico Iyer
Over the past decade, I have had the good fortune of running retreats all over the world.
During this time, I have witnessed many stunning breakthroughs and life transformations. Quite often from the people who were least expecting them!
My years of experience have convinced me that everybody should attend a retreat at least once in their lifetime.
Here are 7 reasons why now might be the right time for you…
Reason #1 - You feel tired of putting everyone else first.
Are you a natural people-pleaser? Do you spend all your time trying to make other people happy?
Do you find yourself constantly saying ‘yes’ to others? Even, if you don’t really feel like it?
It’s exhausting, right?
A retreat can provide you with time out from the constant demands of life, so that you can focus on you for a change.
On a retreat you will get the ‘me time’ that your soul is crying out for and restore balance in your life.
Reason #2 - You are experiencing a health challenge.
Have you forgotten what it’s like to feel truly happy and healthy?
Health challenges can really suck. I should know. Being bedridden and spoon fed by my mother was the wake up call I needed to prioritise my health.
The good thing was that being sick spurred me into action. It motivated me in a big way. And it ended up being a blessing. It helped me to make the necessary changes to get healthy and start living fully.
I know that this possibility exists for you too!
Reason #3 - You want to break old habits or addictions.
When our cravings take hold, they always seem bigger than us, right?
Having fought my own sugar demons, I know how hard this battle can be. Particularly when we are surrounded by all of our usual triggers and temptations.
To break old habits and addictions you need to become the boss of them.
And this is where retreats shine… They magically take us out of our familiar environments and interrupt old patterns and routines.
They give us a chance to make invaluable distinctions and experience new ways of being. And most importantly reconnect with our inner power.
Reason #4 - You are healing from a painful event
Has a difficult emotional experience taken the ‘wind out of your sails’?
Perhaps you’ve been through a painful break up? Or maybe lost someone close to you? Maybe life has squeezed you so hard that you weren’t even sure if you’d make it through to the other side?
Life can be messy. No doubt about it.
Retreats hold you in a kind, loving and supportive atmosphere. This can make it much easier to create the space necessary to tend to our wounds and heal our heavy hearts.
Reason #5 - You want to meet new people
Are you feeling a little jaded with the people in your life?
This can happen when we are surrounded by people that don’t share our interests or values.
Loneliness is at epidemic proportions throughout our modern world. Our traditional human connections are being eroded by constant societal change and advancements in technology.
Retreats can be a great place to meet new and interesting people. I have personally seen many beautiful friendships form on retreats.
Reason #6 - You want to celebrate a special milestone.
Life is short. Often it can be tough to find the time to slow down and be fully present to it as it unfolds.
Retreats can be a great way to take life at a more leisurely pace and really savour important moments. Such as birthdays, anniversaries or even to sign post a big life event such as retirement.
Retreats are a great way to make these special events even more meaningful. And will help to create memories that last a lifetime.
Reason #7 - You are at an important transition point.
Feel like you’re stuck in a rut? Or have a big decision to make?
Want to get a fresh perspective on life?
It can be pretty impossible to do anything new, whilst doing the “same old, same old” things that you’ve been doing like forever.
A retreat in a warm, exotic location might be just the tonic you need.
Retreats activate the imagination. They can kick-start our creative juices, inspire us to see new possibilities and bring focus to what’s truly important.
