It’s been eight years since I made my last silent retreat. At a retreat house on the banks of the Potomac River, I took a few days to do nothing but focus on myself. Last Christas, Alison gave me the gift of a private retreat, which I’ll be making this weekend.
46 hours of a clear schedule and no responsibilities. I’m leaving behind my phone, watch, iPad, and computer. I’m particularly excited about this fact. I can’t wait to experience the clarity of mind that this lack of technology will bring, and I plan to make its effects lasting.
I’m going to take this time to focus on my interior life. See you on Sunday evening.
