Not in stock - ships in 1 to 2 weeks.

The author guides readers toward renewal of mind, heart, and spirit by encouraging them to take time away from the busyness of their lives through retreat. Drawing on her experience as a retreatant and retreat leader, she introduces readers to opportunities for personal restoration within a variety of focused retreats. She wonders how Friends experience of expectant waiting influences the retreat process and how retreats influence expectant waiting. She encourages the “big questions” – What has meaning and purpose in my life? What am I avoiding? What brings me most alive? – and offers specific practices for retreatants to cultivate in everyday life.
