THE SOBER LIFE: A MEDITATION RETREAT AS THERAPY

1
105

We all sometimes feel as if we can use a little extra boost. We might be feeling a bit beaten down by life or just at a low point in our recovery in need of a little extra pick-me-up.  Sometimes a brief change of pace and internal focus can be just the trick to rejuvenate and re-motivate us in living healthy lifestyles.

Why a Meditation Retreat? Most people make very conscious decisions about getting enough exercise, watching what they eat and even having some type of personal relationship with their Creator.  However, how often do you take a time out to personally explore yourself?  We are driven by emotions but rarely take the time to investigate why they’re there and what we can do to make them more productive. That’s where a Meditation Retreat can come in handy.

Meditation Retreats come in all shapes and sizes.  They can be small and intimate or large and motivational.  Most are run by a particular individual (like a Yogi) or organization, so the program will vary based upon the individual’s or group’s belief system.  It’s therefore important to choose wisely in order to find one that mirrors your own views. The most important part though, is that all of them involve the inner exploration of YOU. This can help unlock feelings you have been wrestling with, which often underlie and support your addiction.  It’s your chance to take a guided tour of YOU.  It’s funny, but most of us think we know ourselves pretty well without doing this. However, after one of these retreats, whether for just a day or a long weekend, you’ll be amazed by the secrets you discover as you turn over those internal rocks in your mind.

The Meditation Retreat, another tool in the toolbox of sustaining recovery.
