  • Find the time to retreat whenever and wherever you are
  • Decide whether to retreat at home or away, solo or with others
  • Separate from daily concerns
  • Counter fear, guilt, and boredom
  • Reenter ordinary life renewed

Review:

Jennifer Louden, author of The Woman's Comfort Book, gives women a do-it-yourself guide for creating solitude. Because women tend to nurture relationships more than they nurture themselves, it is often a challenge for women to carve out the space and time they need for private renewal and reflection. Louden offers women inspiration and specific advice on how to retreat within their own homes, as well as how to create rejuvenating weekends and vacations. She even devotes a full chapter to the most pivotal stage of any retreat--the successful re-entry into home, family, and community.

From the Back Cover:

Easy-to-do practices and encouraging insights help you:

retreat whenever and wherever you can make the time decide whether to retreat at home or away, solo or with others use the ancient tradition of the retreat to separate from daily concerns counter fear, guilt, and boredom re-enter ordinary life renewed
