I used to conduct retreats in either Thailand or Malaysia.
It is always a transforming experience for my clients and myself. I am not talking about spa like or eat all you want kind of retreats.
I am talking about retreats for the inner self and this must involve communion with nature. Therefore, you find yourself.
It was also through time spent in nature that I had had a spiritual awakening for my true vocation in life.
Excerpt from book Leaf to Life
A holiday is supposed to be a holy day. Instead of spending time at the casino or shopping, indulge at least once a year in an inner-journey retreat. A retreat is a time for you to take a break from daily affairs and to look inward.
