This is a wonderful pamphlet addressing the need for periods of silence and solitude, of retreat. Various conditions can especially call for retreat: a spiritual impasse or "dark night of the soul," exhaustion, messiness, and helplessness. But one can seek retreat simply to go into a deeper level of living and wait to see what God does to you, or simply to maintain compassion and awareness of the Presence. She discusses several types of retreat. This pamphlet has many gems; here's one: Julian of Norwich said, "The best prayer is to rest in the goodness of God, knowing that that goodness can reach down to our lowest depths of need."
