The 2017 Retreat Guide

Welcome to Spirituality & Health's 2017 Retreat Guide, featuring over 60 places to relax, reconnect and restore. Each of these spaces invites you to give yourself permission to take care of your deepest needs—to stop doing and start being. To stop cooking and caring for others, and let someone else cook and care for you. To walk in silence so you can begin again to hear the song of your own heart. To jump in an ocean. Snowshoe through a meadow. Meditate, practice yoga, drink tea, hike in the woods, heal trauma, soak in a hot mineral bath. Open your heart, quiet your mind.

Remember you? What is it that you need? This year, honor and care for yourself in the same way you cherish others. The journey to rejuvenation starts here.
