057: Why Do You Need Retreat Days?

Culture teaches us to push, push, push! While productivity and work are important parts of our whole REALIFE, if we don't learn to come away for a while we end up living a very reactionary life with our hair on fire! 

Author Dallas Willard says, "If you don't come apart for a while, you will come apart after a while."

While each Enneagram type approaches retreat differently, and we'll talk about that more on next week's episode, for each type there is Full Circle wholeness and living that comes when we're willing to pause and step away from our regular everyday, ordinary lives. 

On this episode, we'll explore:

  • Why is retreat necessary? 
  • What should I consider in structuring a retreat?
  • How could developing a rhythm of retreat be a factor in living more sustainably? 

As you listen in to Episode 057 consider...what would it be worth for me to step away and pause to retreat and take a 30,000-foot view of my life and my business and what will it cost me if I never come apart from it all?
