Spiritual Retreats

Is it time for a retreat? Summer is the time when most people think about going on a vacation. For those who are interested in spirituality, a better alternative may be going on a retreat. Retreat literally means to withdraw, and a spiritual retreat is taking time to withdraw from the hussle and bussle of the world, and focus on your inner self. We become so busy in our world, we do not take the time to ask the important questions; Who am I?, Where am I going?, Am I happy?, What is my purpose? A retreat is a time for contemplation, meditation and reflection. It is a time to focus on being rather than doing. It is a time to explore a different world and see what you may find there.

There are many retreat centers across the country where you can disconnect from life's many demands. Whether you are into Yoga, Zen, Buddhism or Christianity, there are many places to find solitude. Not too far from Denver, Co we have several places to go for peace and solitude. Some of them include: Shoshoni Yoga Retreat in Rollinsville, Co; Shambhala Mountain Center in Red Feather Lakes, Co, Benet Hill Monastery in Colorado Springs, Co, Sunrise Ranch in Loveland, Co, and Sophia Peace Center near Durango, Co For a complete listing of retreat centers across the entire country, see
