What is a retreat?2022-04-13T12:28:07+02:00

A retreat, also known as a retreat, is an age-old form to withdraw from the hectic pace of everyday life and to take space for essence. To take care of who you are and what you want in life.

A retreat today can be a welcome respite to look for that essence. Contemporary retreats are person-oriented and appropriate to the ideas of our time. The present time is a fast time in which we as human beings ask a lot of ourselves. Although this time gives us as an individual a sea of possibilities and freedom, it can sometimes be overwhelming to set the right course on that sea: your own unique course. A retreat offers that space and time. Time for the essence of life. Your life.
