The Healing Benefits of Personal Retreats

The Healing Benefits of Personal Retreats

Imagine waking up to the sounds of temple music softly passing by in the breeze as the sweet scent of incense invites your senses on an exotic journey into paradise. The only “have to” on your list as you wake up is the promise of relaxation, as you immerse yourself in the natural world around you. The worries of day – to – day life begin to melt away with each breath of fresh air, as you take in the beauty. This is the magic of a personal retreat.

The fast pace, high demand society that many of us are immersed in these days leaves very little room for personal reflection, rejuvenation, and life balance. We are encouraged to work more hours for less pay, take on tasks that are way beyond our time limits, and drive ourselves to the point of exhaustion. We lose touch with the very core of who we really are. Our spirit begins to shrink and hide out in places that we’re too exhausted to find. Our life force begins to flash a warning sign alerting us that the tank is reaching empty – real fast.

When we’ve come close to the end of our rope, where do we turn? How do we find the nourishment that we are deeply in need of? Take a deep breath, close your eyes, and take comfort in knowing that your spirit is not far away. It’s time to give yourself the time and space needed to tap into you again. The “you” that remembers what it is like to skip instead of walk, laugh instead of frown, and wake up with a sense of inspired awe as you begin a new day.

Personal retreats invite you on a journey back home to the pure essence of who you really are. You are encouraged to let go of the stress weighing you down and open up to a balanced way of life. With plenty of time to “just be,” you can sink into the stillness within you amongst the most beautiful natural surroundings that Mother Nature has created. A feeling of peace begins to infuse you as you find yourself feeling lighter and freer than ever before.

As the layers begin to lift, healing takes place. Personal retreats invite us to gain a fresh perspective on life. Many retreats offer a variety of healing sessions with experts in many areas of healing and personal growth. Nourishing foods, balancing body movement practices, breath-work, coaching, counseling, energy balancing, artistic exploration, sound healing, nature hiking, sunset walks on the beach – these are just some of the many options available on a personal retreat.

Personal retreats are unlike group retreats in that the focus is entirely on you. They are custom designed with your individual needs in mind. Unlike group retreats, a personal retreat can be created anytime, depending on your schedule.

If you are feeling overwhelmed with the demands of daily life, you are invited on a journey to release the burdens and open up to the joy that is your birthright. It’s time for a personal retreat.
