During the spring of 2017, I found myself feeling depleted and completely overloaded by work and personal obligations. I was a living example of what it meant to lack work-life balance. Experiencing life as if on a continuous non-stop merry-go-round, I decided to exit the merry-go-round by arranging a private retreat at Lindenwood Retreat and Conference Center. Time spent at this beautiful and peaceful Center was a vacation for my soul, body and mind. The Center provided an opportunity for me to rest in the stillness, and experience spiritual and physical rejuvenation.
