How to Do A Personal Spiritual Retreat for Yourself
Have you ever taken a personal spiritual retreat?
If this sounds like something you could use in your life, hang tight. I’ll share more in a minute.
There is a lot of talk, these days, about self-care. As women, we are encouraged to, “Take time and treat yourself!”
This treat yourself approach could range from scheduling a pedicure to booking an expensive spa weekend in Cabo. The former I have done—the latter, not so much.
Over the years, I’ve had wonderful opportunities for spiritual enrichment aside from my local church. Perhaps you can say the same. These have included women’s retreats, worship conferences, and other inspirational gatherings.
These types of events usually provide opportunity for fellowship, worship, training, and growth alongside others of like-minded faith and purpose. And while these moments have the potential to impact us significantly, they are not the same as a personal spiritual retreat.
