Retreat and Pilgrimage & Sabbatical

Psalm 46:10  Be still and know that I am God

Retreat is removing yourself from your usual environment to a specific place for a longer stretch of solitude for extended discussion with God, for throwing forth thoughts and feelings, working things out, being still and waiting on the Lord. Retreat can be done alone or as a group.

Both retreat and pilgrimage & sabbatical rely on breaking our routine for an extended period of time, to slow down our lives so that we can better listen to God, recognize how He is working in our lives, and acknowledge those areas where He would have us to change.
