Personal retreats tend to be highly specialized. They’re offered for a select group of people looking for the same kinds of relaxing activities and opportunities for personal growth and high-value take-home skills that any corporate clientele might seek. However, when we look at our offerings, we tailor them to the skills that people want in the settings they need them. For example, better communication skills. Who wouldn’t want that?
Communicating with a household filled with kids of all ages comes across a bit differently from inter-departmental communications. Better relationships with one’s spouse works differently from getting on better at work. Plus, some retreats are for sheer peace and quiet. Others are for adventure. Retreats may serve to help us connect to a deeper, more spiritual side of ourselves.
There’s a personal retreat available for everyone who’s looking for a better way to live life. However, a retreat isn’t always focused on how to do something better. Ultimately, a retreat is a way to separate who you are from what you do and look at both. We are not only the roles we perform, not really. We’re people, first, even if we’ve been in that same old routine for years. The person we are thrives on nurturance and fulfillment. If we aren’t getting our most basic needs met when it comes to self-actualizing, we become a routine only.
A personal retreat is a great way to look deep down and see if those basic needs are being met. It’s so easy to lose track of ourselves, especially if we’re living a life that’s centered around service to others, whether that’s a family or a job, a vocation or a journey. Even pathfinders need to take a break sometimes and evaluate the journey.
A retreat like the ones we offer at Alma can serve as an excellent way to step back, evaluate one's journey, practice self-care, and just be.
