How can a wellness retreat help you recharge and refocus?

Stephanie coordinates volunteers, marketing efforts and operations for The Healing Center in Walker’s Point.

The Healing Center’s staff and interns recently took a day off to relax and rejuvenate. We all headed west to a retreat center out in the country and were welcomed with warm food, massages and activities to promote spiritual healing.

The day was cold and grey, but we still managed to sneak in some nature walks, time around the fire and “soul painting” outside in the barn. It was nice to take a break from the daily routine and catch up with co-workers. Take a look at our day away from the office!

Why take a wellness retreat? Our daily lives are in constant motion, as we go from work to school to our home life. While routines help us function day to day, it’s important to take a break sometimes and relax our bodies and minds.

Retreats allow for this holistic time off and help us reconnect with our spirits. It’s also beneficial to spend time with others and experience nature, eat nutritious foods that we don’t always have time to cook at home and try out new therapeutic techniques like massage, Reiki or Tai Chi. Retreats also allow us to hit the reset button, break us out of the mundane and recharge so that when we do go back to “normal life” we’re refreshed.

The Healing Center provides counseling, group therapy and other support services. All of our services are free, as we believe that everyone, regardless of inability to pay, deserves the help they need. To learn more about our services, please visit our website
