Going on retreat means leaving distractions and responsibilities for a short time and instead taking the opportunity to develop awareness, deepen meditation and let the beautiful surroundings affect you. You get to meet other people with an interest and practice in the Dharma (the Buddha’s teachings) and be well fed! There is usually a theme for the retreat that will be explored and the time to reflect on it as well as time just to be yourself.
