I love a good retreat. No, I mean I REALLY LOVE retreats.
As a teenager, I was introduced to the concept of retreats when I participated in a leadership program. And these were intense retreats led by corporate alumni like lawyers and business leaders whose mission it was to foster leadership in urban teens. Retreat topics included male/female relationships, self-awareness, etc. They were brutal and beautiful at the same time, and I’m so grateful for those experiences now. These retreats were transformative experiences and helped shape my character.
