Now here we have word with two meanings and yet they do essentially mean the same thing.
When you retreat, you move away from something. It is often involuntarily, such as encountering a bear in the woods. From such an encounter, you would want to retreat from the situation –and rather quickly, we would think!
You may retreat from a confrontational or unpleasant situation, such as a fight or loud argument. No need to get involved in something that isn’t your concern or which takes away peace in your life. It is their story, not yours.
Speaking of your story, however, you indeed may want to take a retreat from the world—a vacation or holiday—from your everyday life. A retreat is great to soothe the soul and clear away the cobwebs of the mind. Whether a long or short time—the length is up to you and your own emotions, feelings and how you feel in mind, body and spirit. Take the time you need to quench your soul into a period of refreshment and renewal.
We encourage regular periods of retreat so you may return to your labors without discontent or distress.
So whether it is a needed vacation, or a simply a move away from an unpleasant situation, learn to retreat (verb) appropriately or take a retreat (noun) when the opportunity warrants.
Either meaning will allow you to renew, refresh and realign your balance.
