Spiritual Retreats – Why We Need Them

Our lives are full of distractions.  Unless you live under a rock or are Amish, chances are you find yourself wading through a sea of emails, text messages, phone calls, and social media posts on a daily basis.  This virtual tsunami of information can leave even the strongest and most organized person feeling weighed down, adrift, and sometimes disconnected from their spiritual life.  Taking time away allows us to distance ourselves from these distractions, ultimately renewing our faith and our sense of purpose.
Retreats are an indispensable means of renewing positive
connections, forming deeper understandings,
and restoring our faith.
Honor’s Haven Resort & Spa, a four-season resort in Upstate New York, has long recognized the need for an environment that is conducive to spiritual growth and commitment, making it a favored destination for retreatsof all of types and sizes since 2007.
So other than taking a hiatus from outside distractions, why do we need retreats, and how exactly do they help us to grow in our faith and develop our sense of purpose?

A New Perspective
Tackling any issue is difficult when we’re tired; physically or emotionally.  A retreat provides us with the opportunity to recharge our spiritual battery – leaving us renewed, refreshed, and able to look at the world around us with a fresh set of eyes.
Development of Unity
Today’s technology has made it very easy to lead a solitary life almost completely devoid of human interaction.  Retreats are able to, through shared experiences, build and deepen our sense of community fellowship.
Improved Relationships
The distractions in our lives can result in a breakdown in communication between family members.  Retreats not only provide families and couples with an opportunity to reconnect, but can contribute to meaningful changes like improved trust and commitment.
Retreats are an indispensable means of renewing positive connections, forming deeper understandings, and restoring our faith.
