When is the best time to fast ?
There is a lot to be said for ripeness. Readiness. A time that is right for you.
But don't let that idea get in your way. Don't keep putting it off because its not quite the perfect time yet. It will never be perfect - there will always be some other thing you can be doing, somewhere else to go, and something different to spend your money on.
The best time to plant an orchard is 25 years ago.
The second best time is now...
In the same way, you wish you had done a retreat last year, and the year before, so get on it now, before you wish next year that you had done it this year !
And depending on which season you chose to join us in, there are all manner of delights awaiting you.
All the seasons have their merits, and you may not know your reasons for joining a retreat until you are there, and you may not notice the effect of these seasonal tides upon you until you have been to a few retreats at different times of the year.
But most people who come to a retreat at a given season cannot imagine ever wanting to come at a different one.
“How can people fast in the winter” I hear, whilst our guests lay chatting in the sun in July. or “I just wouldn’t feel so refreshed if I spent so much time with people” when people emerge from their rooms at the end of their retreat in winter…
Truth be told, all seasons contain all those energies, and deep rest or sociability are available on each retreat, but it is in the overall group that we see the effect of the seasons.
So, come and get it. Don't wait for some other time that might be more appropriate.
There is much to learn in any moment...
And you want optimum health right now, don't you ? Or can it wait another year ?
