Contentment in the Pines
Read about PJ's story of traveling to Retreat in the Pines with her daughters.
I believe true friends are precious, and it’s especially challenging to find new friends in the age of social media. I love my lifelong friends, but I’m always open to meeting and making new friends.
Our retreats encourage sharing and connecting. If you’d like to expand your circle of friends, join us for a retreat. Allow yourself to be open, and you may find a new best friend.
In the busyness of life, it is easy to put friendship on the back burner. You may believe you don't have time to get together with a friend, but truly the gift of time with a friend who will listen to you is a much needed part of self-care.
A night out or even a night in will allow you to find perspective on what's going on in life.
New friends can expand our horizons and introduce us to a new way of thinking that may enrich our life in ways we never imagined. They offer new experiences, new hobbies and may even lead to more friends.
At our retreats, we often witness new connections leading to true friendships. There is something so beautiful about connecting with a stranger, whom we may have assumed we had nothing in common with, only to discover shared interests, joys and even shared pain…and now a friendship.
Old friends are our constants, supporting us through good times and bad, sharing joys and sorrows and knowing our strengths and weaknesses. New friends bring freshness. And sometimes a new friend is just what we need as we change and grow.
