Why do we retreat?
You cannot pour from an empty cup. We need to replenish from the inside out. By nurturing and supporting the relationship with our ‘self’ we are able to have healthier and happier relationships with others.
Temporarily retreating from the habits and demands of ‘everyday life’ gives us the space to take a fresh look at our lives, to re-connect and nurture without distractions.
EVERYONE in our life benefits when we refill our cup by :-
1. Relaxing in the moment
Being separated from our everyday life gives us the space to be present and aware of our body and what it needs. We have time be involved in what we are doing. Each moment is a joy because we are not pressured by thinking and re-thinking about what needs to done next or worrying about what we have not done. Finally we release stressing about every little detail of our busy lives and relax. Truly relax.
2. Being with like minded people
Joining with others who are committed to improving their lives, interested in personal growth and embracing new experiences is inspirational. You may create new friendships that support, uplift you and inspire you to be the best that you can be.
As Richard Branson says “The quality of your life is a direct result of the quality of people you surround yourself with.”
3. Creating positive changes
Through creativity we deepen our self-awareness to discover our true heart’s desire and soul’s yearning. Being involved with different activities, places and people during your retreat exposes you to a different way of being you. This experience will leave you feeling more present and connected to who you are.
Fully immersing yourself in a retreat experience really supports long-term change. To feel energized and re-vitalised sometimes you just have to get out of your current environment to see what needs to shift. You have the space to find clarity in your life.
4. Rejuvenating the body
A retreat provides you with opportunities to nourish for your outer self, which in turn nourishes your inner well being. Take a Yoga class. Indulge in healing massages, facials, manicures and other beauty treatments. Caring and lovingly treating your body works wonders for ‘you’.
5. Connecting with nature to nurture
Taking a walk in nature and enjoying the stunning beauty of all that the natural world offers is in itself very healing. By sitting in nature you connect with the nurturing power of the earth itself to ground and reset your inner harmony.
6. Discovering self worth
The more we make time to prioritize self-love and self-nurturing practices into our lives, the more EVERYONE benefits.
Can you make the time? Organize something that is just for you and take a small break from your life, loved ones and or work, to be with yourself for YOU. Retreats offer you the space to truly care, nourish and love you.
Re - fill your cup. You are worth it.
