Spiritual Centers & Retreats

“You must learn to be still in the midst of activity and to be vibrantly alive in repose.”

—Indira Gandhi

When you ask someone how he or she is, how many times do you get the response, "busy?" It seems almost to be a badge of honor to be busy. Yet we wonder why we feel out of balance and out of sorts, with physical symptoms like headaches and high blood pressure. Anne Wilson Schaef, a lecturer, organizational consultant, former psychotherapist, and workshop leader who trains health care professionals throughout the world says, “Our deep spirituality is the best balancer.”

If you have been feeling out of balance and too busy, a spiritual retreat may be of interest to you. Let Gandhi's words remind you, “...learn to be still in the midst of activity.” A spiritual retreat can give you time to reflect and to reassess priorities and interests to begin your next step in life renewed and refreshed.

Numerous centers offer retreats throughout the country. To get you started, here is a website that lists retreat centers in Minnesota and throughout the nation.
