On Retreat

I have written about retreats in several of my previous blog posts here and elsewhere, as well as on a page especially devoted to the topic.  At present, I am usually able to spend a few hours "on retreat" on a daily basis.

Gathering thoughts, organising words in written form, looking at works of art and old photographs, and giving full attention to the ordinary tasks of daily routines and to various expressions of creativity, need time.  Balancing a busy life with times of inner silence, complete rest, and possibly outer silence too, away from the chatter and clutter and intrusions of "normal" existence, are the essentials of my own preferred retreat.
