PAUSE: A Personal Retreat

  1. Pick a day/ time and put on your calendar. Communicate with anyone who may need to know “ Hey, I’m busy during this day/time.” I typically hold my personal retreats either 3 hours or 6 hours, just depending on the season and how I’m feeling. It also helps me with planning to see which one is accessible at this time.
  2. Look at the season in nature. What is the season inviting you to do with this time? By reflecting on nature first, you will get some wisdom as to what you will do with your retreat day. You don’t need any fancy guides or information to know that in Spring, we are blooming and it’s a great time to journal about your dreams and desires or that in Winter, it’s inviting us to be warm, cozy and go inward, see what each season is inviting your heart to lean into. I have been using this book since 2011 to plan my retreats.
  3. Now, the fun part! You have 2 ways to approach the retreat time..
