Six Reasons to Go on a Retreat

Share This Post

Have you been feeling lost? Have you been working so much, doing your day to day activities that you have forgotten what is important to you? Do you just need a break from your day to day life? Then my Awakening the Spirit Retreat in Ubud, Bali was created for you.
Why Go on Retreat?
Not that you need a reason to go to a jaw-droppingly beautiful place during winter and be in the tropics, but just in case…here are 6 more reasons to push the pause button.
1.  You will get a renewed sense of self.  
We often get so caught up in our day to day lives that we forget what is truly important to us and what we really want out of life.  When you give yourself time to be out of that routine and in nature, relaxing and trying new things, you open up space to allow those answers to come to you.
2. You will eat well without having to do all the work.
You get three healthy and delicious meals a day without the need to find recipes, go grocery shopping, prepare the food, or clean up. Getting the nutrition you need has never been easier. All the work is done for you.
3. You’ll replace old habits.
The best way to break a bad habit is to replace it with a new healthy one. When you get out of your regular routine for a week, you can replace unhealthy habits with conscious new behaviors that support you in being your best self.
4. You will detox, mind body and spirit.
You are more unplugged, you are eating well, doing yoga and meditating.  You are making time for yourself.  Your body is going to undergo healing and you will leave refreshed.
5.You will make new friends.
This is just bound to happen when at a retreat doing activities with new people.  You might just make a new life-long friend.
6. You will appreciate home.
While a week in paradise is always nice, we often come home with a refreshed appreciation for life. You feel happier, healthier, and re-energized to jump back into your routine with new vigor. Heck, it might even feel fun.

“This review is way overdue, since it’s been a few months since my retreat with Erin. It was such a powerful experience that I wanted to wait until I had more of a grasp on just how much that experience changed me. My life was pretty tumultuous before I took this journey. Firstly, Erin did such a thoughtful job with everything about this retreat. She carefully planned workshops, adventures, yoga classes of all kinds and a bunch of extra goodies. Secondly, I trust her implicitly and knew she she could guide me on such a powerful journey. I feel like I learned more about myself in one week than I have in certain entire years. I laughed, I cried, I realized, I stumbled, I speared, I got out of my comfort zone and I stepped into my authenticity. Talk about alchemy! And Erin held space for all of it. And for all of us. And I got to take all those treasures of my own being with me when I left. Since my retreat I have been better able to look within to find solutions to my obstacles and to find the stillness and peace within myself. I hope to able to journey with Erin again someday, and build upon my first experience. I feel more confident in my life because of this trip. It opened up new vistas for me and I truly feel like my brain had a rewiring on multiple levels. And that’s priceless to me. If you’re considering a retreat with Erin, don’t second guess yourself. Just take the leap and know that you in the best possible hands there could be.” Namasté Amanda, CA
