Thanks for telling us about it. I had tried to register for Mike Lew's retreat in PA 10 days ago, but I messed up the registration and then found an important family obligation that conflicted, so I didn't fix the registration.
It would have been my first retreat, and I knew that it would be quite an experience, but I hadn't really heard from anyone who had been on a retreat, except to read in general that "retreats are Good."
I guess you have a lot of newly ploughed earth to tend. And there's probably a lot of stinky stuff
there, too. But it's an opportunity for growth, and that's a Good Thing.
Let us know how things are going.
