#25 Ruth Haley Barton


When was the last time you took a personal retreat? As we approach a super busy, end-of-year season filled with Thanksgiving and Christmas events (plus, have you ever found yourself working overtime just to get everything done before going on holiday?) it’s easy to forget to prioritise your own mental, emotional and spiritual health. We’re not talking about a corporate retreat with colleagues or church friends, but a personal one - something so relevant, needed and welcome in a world that pulls at our attention and demands much from us every day of the week. Deanna has been speaking with author, Ruth Haley Barton, about this necessary practice.
