    Kindle Edition ¶ The Retreat ePUB º retreat kindle, The Retreat PDFEPUBLet me begin by saying that this is not the type of book I would normally choose to read but as a fan of Jacci Turner and as an ex Christian who has become disillusioned with organized religion in general yet who still retains a deeply spiritual nature the plot line of the book caught my fascinationAmy finds the judgmental edicts of her church conflicting with the truths she holds in her own heart While at a spiritual retreat in Nebraska which seems to blend the teachings of Christ with many New Age spiritual practices she finds herself and her faith once In some ways I could fully relate to Amy and her inner struggles having felt a few of her conflicts myself At other times I felt as if I were in a foreign land feeling my own Displacement experience Being so far removed from any type

    Kindle Edition ¶ The Retreat ePUB º retreat kindle, The Retreat PDFEPUBHelp is Available I began reading The Retreat at a low point in my life My husband had been diagnosed with cancer I was feeling rather overwhelmed with my life and emphasized with Amy the main character Jacci writes self help into this story about healing and self discovery and what and how the Bible can assist I used the book as a guide to contemplate the issues in my life and tried the practice of putting my concerns on leaves floating away The stress reducing breathing techniue helped me remain calm for my husband’s treatment and not worry about the future The examen allowed me to review the day with gratitude and make the most of each day we had together be it long or short
