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 tice 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 * ticing 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 `rmal life' after the retreat and to explore the question `where next?'
