Let us discuss a few types of Retreats
Retreats of this type are basically for people who want to spend some quality time for them. Personal retreat is spending a day or two in solitude, away from family, children, work, friends, responsibility, etc. People can go on personal retreats to distant places and discover new things about themselves, know about feelings, relationship. He/ she would want to escape from the worries and hardships in real life, stay away from the bad emotional phase and therefore go on personal retreats.
When people go on personal retreat it is a sole venture with no responsibilities, all alone and spend ample time for adventure, creativity and discovery. Personal retreat is finding time alone in the midst of busy life schedule.
Personal retreats are usually taken by people who are overloaded with work, tension, responsibility of family and children. Previously people who went on personal retreats usually disconnected themselves complete for a day or two from family, friends, work, etc. without any communication. The main purpose of this type of a retreat is to have a close look at yourself, enrich your strengths, what you are. It is getting to know oneself better.
