To live fully and authentically with our values, it sometimes requires us to totally disconnect with our normal world to look within and re-establish what is important to use as well as the direction that we want to head in our life. This can happen in meditation and a small disconnect every day is wonderful. But I strongly suggest that once per year you need a much greater disconnection in the form of a retreat or similar.
On our retreats in Bali and Australia, people get to forget about all the responsibilities and worries of normal life for just a few days and this allows for a much clearer picture of their life and where it is heading. They can decide on the purpose, values and direction in a way which is almost impossible when you are surrounded by the daily responsibilities of life.
