Retreats In Daily Life

RetreatsRetreat in Daily Life: Traditionally, a retreat has meant an extended time of silent prayer and reflection, away from everyday life. Usually such retreats have been made in a religious setting such as a monastery or retreat house. Although anyone might welcome a time of prayer and quiet reflection, not everyone can spend time or money on a residential retreat away from home. In recent years ‘daily life’ retreats have become widespread. These retreats, which are accessible to more people, offer some of the elements of a residential retreat, but – as their name implies – the prayer and reflection take place with the context of ordinary daily living.
