This useful pamphlet addresses what a retreat is for, why we may go on retreat, and how to plan and do a retreat.

Brown (DMin, I believe) leads the reader through spiritual retreats as she fashions them. What should the novice expect? Why should one participate in a retreat? Why can't one simply carve out this space at home alone (well, it turns out one can)?

Speaking from a personal point of view, Brown seems to fully understand both the questions a retreatant might bring to the group, but also how to gently hold the group as they grown into relationship. She also makes suggestions for taking the new "you" with you as you reenter your life in the world.

I rated it 4* instead of 5* since I was able to put it aside for over two years.
