It is customary during the meeting following a significant retreat experience to provide an opportunity for those who attended the retreat to have a chance to “think out loud” about the experience. Going to a one-week or longer residential retreat ha the same effect on the mind and body as would be the case when a musician or athlete participates in a long and immersive series of practice events–the neurological connections associated with the skills being cultivated become stronger and more useful. Having the chance to talk with others who understand what is being discussed increases the clarity and accessibility of the experience in normal life circumstances. Additionally, it can inspire others to participate in such events in the future as they hear of the benefits. Each person reports on her or his experience during the meeting, followed by questions or comments from those attending the Zoom meeting.
