Need some more ideas for taking a spiritual retreat?

Spiritual Exercises

1. Find a rectreat center near you and spend a day away with God. (Check the Web or Yellow Pages. Call a Catholic church and ask where they go on retreat.) Take a Bible and no other reading material. Take a journal along if journaling appeals to you. Enter the queietness. Rest into God. Sleep. Attend to Scripture. Do not hurry. Listen.

2. If you don’t want to go to a retreat center, plan a day outside or in some other quiet setting where you can spend time with the Lord. Take only your Bible with you. When your day is over, bring some small memento (a rock, a twig, a photograph) of your time with God. Let your retreat object remind you of your time with God.

3. Once a month or once a season set aside a day for a retreat. Reflect on how you have seen God’s presence in you life since your last retreat. How has God been with you? How have you grown to love him? Has God nudged you into some particular discussion about this time?
