This is a `travel companion' for those who want to make a personal retreat in the Christian tradition, either at home or away, alone or with others.
Part 1 encourages us to listen to the Spirit, to pay attention to inner restlessness and to notice our need to `get away'. It outlines the different types of retreats that may best suit different individual personalities and circumstances and offers essential `tips for the trip':
* introducing contemplation
* praying with Scripture
* noticing God in the everyday
* resisting `busyness'
* recording the journey - i.e. prayer journal
Part 2 provides a varied and imaginative range of guided spiritual exercises for your time on retreat and offers support for the unexpected things that may emerge.
Part 3 helps you readjust to `normal life' after the retreat and to explore the question `where next?'
