What the Retreatant Brings

The retreatant brings to Eastern Point a desire to come closer to God. A person’s purpose in seeking a retreat need not be more defined. Willingness to open up to a spiritual director a trained listener is necessary. Also required is an openness to prayer and reflection, to contemplation and silence as ways to discern God’s presence.

A retreatant may bring questions about God, faith, family, and church to the retreat conversation. From troubling personal concerns to what brings joy, the retreatant enters into the Spiritual Exercises with a willingness to understand more deeply the nature of spiritual relationships with God and one’s spiritual relationship with others.

The retreatant can also expect that a community will form among all the retreatants even though there is little talking among them. Side by side, the retreatants develop respect for each other. They are all going through somewhat similar experience. A group dynamic develops that is of benefit to all. To this dynamic a retreatant would want to be open and welcoming.
