Why go on a Spiritual Retreat?
It will center on your relationship with God, and explore all the consequences of that relationship, including your decisions and your actions.
It allows you to withdraw from ordinary daily life to nourish ones inner spiritual longings.
It is a move to open oneself to the inner workings of the mind and spirit.
You will be able to meditate in peaceful surroundings with a choice to be solitary and still or in company of like minded souls to grow spiritually
