Spiritual Healing Retreats

What is spirituality?
The Oxford dictionary defines Spirituality as … The quality of being concerned with the human spirit or soul as opposed to material or physical things.

To me, spirituality or to be spiritual is not about religion as such but it’s about a connection you feel on a larger scale. It’s a connection to the world as a whole.
Human beings were not meant to feel alone. We are social animals that have, throughout our history, felt like a part of nature – one that has its own spirit and is not simply a vessel of nerves and muscles.

Spiritual healing retreats are designed to bring you back. Each retreat is its own unique experience designed to rejuvenate the soul and restore your sense of spirituality.
A retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect, ground and refocus yourself. Sometimes it’s nice to have some time away from the city/our busy lives and regroup with our spirit, our soul. When we should be working to live instead of mostly working to survive life. The joys of life get lost in our busy schedules, our days become years and soon we have lost years of our life. Is that the life you want to live? I personally can not!

What’s involved in Spiritual Healing Retreats?

Every retreat has its own unique character and personality. What you are looking for with any spiritual retreat is a variety of features that are unique to you. At Art of living, you will not only find your inner peace but find exactly what you are looking for.
For example:

  • Time with Nature

Those living in the city life often miss out on one of the most important keys for boosting the soul – time outside, surrounded by nature, and away from the cities. Nature is something you can feel, and something that the mind needs to feel at peace.

  • Spiritual Guidance

From yoga to classes, there are many different activities that bring out someone’s spirit, provided that you are led by those that are able to offer the guidance and inspiration that you need for spiritual growth.

Getting more in touch with your inner spirit involves taking time for yourself. Guided meditation, as well as activities for quiet and relaxation are all great ways to feel restored.

  • “Soul” Food

It’s difficult to nourish your soul if you aren’t nourishing your body. Several spiritual healing retreats integrate meals that detoxify the body and refresh your mind. This allows you to feel less bogged down mentally, and experience more spiritually.

  • Relaxation

Finally, stress is the enemy of spirituality. Your spiritual healing retreat needs to give you the opportunity to simply relax and enjoy your time away from your concerns and challenges.

When you feel more in touch with your spiritual side, it is something that reverberates through other areas of your life as well, including how you feel at work, the motivation you have to manage your home life, and so much more.
