My wife Joy and I spent a week hiking in the Pyrenees last summer, in the Aigüestortes national park close to the site of next year's World Retreat.

Even with a conventional mindset you can appreciate what an Acem retreat has to offer: a swim in the lake, a walk in the woods, a room with a view, and interesting conversations with people from various parts of the world. The benefits of spending a week of your summer holiday sitting alone in your room with closed eyes for several hours a day may be less obvious. In fact, however, long meditations are where you pave the way for more fundamental changes in your life.
