Journal Exercise to Complete at the End of Retreat

. at . 1 comment

We just spent a lovely weekend right by Lake Tahoe. The weekend’s topic was an overview of  Boundaries and presented in a low-key, sensitive manner. One attendee said she enjoyed how the topic was shared without guilt. Me too.

Boundaries are supposed to be able to “breathe,” to be like fences with a gate that can let the good in and the bad out. Individuals with walls for boundaries can let in neither bad nor good. No one touches them.

God designed our personal boundaries to have gates. We should have the freedom to enjoy safe relationships and to avoid destructive ones.”  (Boundaries by Dr. Cloud & Dr. Townsend, pp 52-53)

At the end of a retreat, class, or seminar, I like to evaluate the experience. This helps me to see what I learned and how to incorporate the learning into my life.

Below are some questions to ponder after your next retreat.

  1. What were your expectations and hopes regarding the following: The topic  . . . Yourself . . . The ladies . . . God?
  2. Were your expectations and hopes met in each of the four areas? Why or why not? How?
  3. What one or two ideas made a great impact on you this weekend?
  4.  What will you do with this information?
  5.  Who will you share it with?

Your Turn – – – How did you answer the questions? What questions would you add?
