Every day it is more fashionable to participate in meditation, mindfulness, yoga, spiritual, therapeutic retreats... These are terms that are increasingly popular in today's society and we ourselves are part of this new trend. Find out what are the benefits of taking a retreat.
Many people write to us asking what a retreat is and how they can benefit from participating in one of them. Here is our explanation of what a retreat is and how participating in a retreat can transform your life.
What is a Retreat
When we feel unsuccessful, unmotivated, frustrated, we fantasize about the idea of escaping and leaving everything. Surely you cannot leave your husband, work, children, and daily responsibilities to take a gap year. But you can start by taking the first step: take a few days of silence for yourself and take advantage of that time to know what is happening to you, who you really are, and what you have come to do in this world.
A retreat is a time that you give yourself. It is a stop to observe. You come out of your known life, of your automatic pilot, to be in you, to observe your thoughts, emotions, feelings…
Choosing to be alone is connecting with your silence to know yourself better. From your silence and your self-observation, you will begin to become aware of your current situation. This will help you take stock of how your life is in the present moment. From there you will begin to find greater clarity in your future decisions. From the silence, you will always find answers.
Why it is important to take a retreat
We live a materialistic life and at such an accelerated rate we forget ourselves and our deepest needs. We have stopped questioning who we are or what we have come to contribute to this world. We have forgotten our childhood or youth dreams and we have entered a spiral of stress, rush, anxiety. All in order to meet meaningless goals in order to cover all the material needs that we have created for ourselves.
In the midst of this chaos, one of the unfinished business of most people in this Western world is trying to preserve their most spiritual side, and therefore trying to know themselves. For this, it is necessary that we stop, listen to our interior, and reconnect with our essence. Hence the need to take a retreat as a space to stop stopping autopilot and connect with what our soul longs for.
What you can learn in a Retreat
The yoga teaches you to return to your essence, to connect with your true self, to live from simplicity to enjoy the present moment, to thank, to self-observe you, to listen, to love and to cherish, to find your peace and happiness within you.
As you make your physical body healthy, you regenerate your entire inner world.

Meditation can help you be more aware of yourself. When you meditate, you are in a calm and pleasant state of mind. Meditation has been shown to be essential for feeling better and finding inner peace. It allows you to go beyond the needs of your ego and connect directly with your true Self.
Meditation calms the mind, relaxes your nerves, serves many purposes, and in your process of personal transformation, meditating slows down your mental worries and opens you to the world of infinite possibilities.
Ask you questions
Integrating a routine of asking questions is a great way to develop a better understanding of yourself and our actions. By asking questions, it is possible to identify why we feel a certain way, or why we react to something the way we do. That is why we, in all our retreats, we include coaching practices full of powerful questions that involve an internal reset and the beginning of a deep and lasting transformation.
Live the present
When we learn to live in the present, we also learn to stop worrying about the future or the past. Living from Mindfulness or Mindfulness is a very positive practice. When you are fully living in the present, you can focus on whatever emotion and feeling you have at the time. Your happiness is in your present moment, which is the only real thing you have.
Contact with nature
While being in contact with nature, it provides physical and mental well-being. Walking and enjoying certain landscapes reduces the secretion of stress hormones in half. We locate all our retreats in places that allow us to connect with nature because we know that the natural calm the mind. We always recommend doing hiking trails in silence and from mindfulness, that is, from that mindfulness that allows us to merge with nature.
