What sort of retreats are there?

There are various types of retreats to choose from ranging from one to 30 days, preached or individually guided, silent or companionable. There are organised retreats or you might want to do your own thing. The nature of retreat you choose will depend on what you are looking for:

Is it to have time out with God to listen to Him? Then try a silent retreat.

Is it to think through a particular issue with some input or aid in doing this? An individually guided retreat might be just what you are looking for. Your retreat guide will help you reflect on the issue and together with the Lord and His word, assist you in moving on.

Is it to consider a specific topic? Look at the preached retreats that are offered and see if there is one that begins to address that topic.
