A retreat lets our feelings open out. It can bring understanding of where we are in life too. All the great spiritual traditions are about discovering ourselves in ways that help us to grow in happiness and love. For many people a retreat will be an awakening to the presence of God in their lives. Going on a retreat means taking time away from your ordinary life and situation. It is a special time to give yourself some peace and calm. You might be stepping away from a hectic lifestyle full of being too busy.
In the last week of March, 10 girls from the school had a chance to take a break from the routine and go for a spiritual retreat at Govardhan. They had a great experience. The retreat was right after their annual exams and that is what made it even more special. The girls had a chance to interact with women from all walks of life. Travel to different beautiful places around Govardhan, meditate, and engage in fun activities like singing, garland making, dancing etc.
Here is what Anuradha had to say about her experience, “This was the first time I attended something like this, it gave me time to reflect deeply on my life’s direction and hearing from women with more experience definately helped me understand life better. I would love to go again!”.
