In the depth of their heart many people feel a deep longing for God to shape their lives. They look for a personal contact with God that is simple, spontaneous and immediate. In this book the Author shares his experience of many years in the retreat-ministry. Step by step, in ten units, he leads the retreatant towards an immediate awareness of the reality of God, of his presence. His approach has many affinities with the spiritual traditions of India. The book can be used as a practical guide for both, a closed retreat — a time of withdrawal for silence and prayer of ten days — as well as a “retreat in everyday life”.
