What is a Retreat?

A retreat is an incredible opportunity to leave our daily lives behind and find time to recharge and rediscover ourselves. Going on a retreat means pausing to take stock of how we’re handling our lives, and make a change to move forward. It is a moment that provides us with the clarity to face the “problems” or challenges that life puts in our path.

Why go on a retreat?

Life moves fast. Technology makes our day-to-day easier, and more stressful. Our bodies’ natural state is not accustomed to this rhythm, making breaks ever-more necessary. We must silence the noise, and take a moment to sit with ourselves, bringing the peace and strength we need for our journey through life.

How to choose the best retreat?

If you’re interested in trying out a retreat experience, we recommend starting with a spiritual weekend retreat to give your mind and soul the pause and tranquillity they need. Going on a spiritual retreat is a spectacular opportunity to focus on your inner self.

Types of Retreats

Personal Growth

Personal growth is directly connected to well-being and health. Workshops and activities help us connect with our inner being, and reach our inner selves. This inward journey will afford us greater opportunity to find balance within ourselves, and externally in life. These are experiences that help us change our outlook and perception of life. Perhaps a small change in perspective on a certain matter will help us find our joy and face the day. Historically, retreats have served as the perfect space for personal growth.

  • Yoga

    A yoga retreat is a gift we can give to better ourselves in many ways: improving our physical abilities, alleviating stress, improving flexibility, being more aware of our body, boosting energy, and achieving serene inner peace above all. A yoga retreat can be for those who practice regularly as well as beginners. It’s always good to ask if it’s right for your level before signing up, although most retreats can welcome all different skill levels without issue.

  • Wellness

    We take on a great deal of stress in our daily lives, and this causes us both physical and mental exhaustion. Work, personal matters... There comes a time when we need to press pause and escape the routine to focus on our well-being. When we find ourselves at that point, a wellness retreat is the perfect way to make that disconnection we so deeply desire. There are many activities to help you relax and re-establish your mind-body connection.

  • Meditation

    Meditation is the practice of strengthening focus and consciousness on the present moment. The act of meditating has the aim of reaching a state of mental and physical serenity, inner peace, concentration, as well as creativity. I am here and now. In short, meditating means taking an inner journey, quieting external and internal noise.

    The way we travel is changing as mentalities change and consciousness is awakened. Many people are unhappy with the mass-tourism model.

  • Frequent Questions

    What is a spiritual retreat for?

    One of the main objectives of all retreats is to feel and find your inner peace. All the techniques or methodologies that are done during a retreat seek this feeling of fullness and connection with yourself and your life. It serves to become aware and to approach your life from a broader and more conscious perspective.

    What do you do in a spiritual retreat?

    Everything will depend on the type and methodology of the retreat. In general, it usually combines physical practices to have more body awareness and awaken the body, practices of some technique of personal growth or meditation. It is also common to go to the surroundings of the retreat house where we can enjoy nature and connect with it.

    How to prepare for a spiritual retreat?

    When you see that the date for your retreat is approaching, you are looking forward to a beautiful and transforming experience. The questions come, who will be there, how will I be, what will happen. All these questions are normal, they are created by the mind. You may feel insecure and even a little bit afraid. But when you finish the experience you realize that it has far exceeded your previous expectations. Therefore, no previous preparation is needed, unless you want to start or deepen your meditation practice or prepare yourself a little bit for Yoga practices.

    What is the price of a spiritual retreat?

    The objective of the retreat is for you to spend an enriching and transforming experience outside of your daily life, which is why it requires at least one night away from home. Everything is included in the price, except transportation to access the retreat. It includes the stay, food throughout the day, and the practices that are instructed by the facilitators and therapists. The prices will vary according to the characteristics and duration of the retreat and may be more economical retreats or more expensive for the benefits that are given.

    What is the purpose of a retreat?

    The main objective would be to enhance your personal growth. A more conscious way of seeing and living life. When we quiet our mind we can focus on our inner peace. We evolve into a better version of ourselves. We feel a sense of wholeness and connection with yourself and your life.

    What is needed to make a retreat?

    You don't need anything in particular. Just a strong desire to want this experience to change some aspect of your life that you want to transform and evolve. On a material level, and depending on each retreat, you will be asked to bring a notebook to write down thoughts and reflections that you have there. You may also be asked to bring a yoga mat, or a reusable water bottle so you can take it with you to the activity room.

    Where can I go for a spiritual retreat?

    That will depend on where you want to go, if you prefer a retreat close to where you live or give a little more adventure and go to another country. All the places where a retreat is given are surrounded by nature, be it forests, mountains, rivers, beaches, etc. So you have to ask yourself, what region, country, or type of nature do I want to go to? How many days do you have available to live this experience? Doing a retreat is a wonderful experience to discover new places and be able to enjoy nature and connect with it. We offer you our advanced search engine so you can find the experience that best suits your needs.
