About Us

Maybe you’ve been wondering what ‘La Retraite’ means?

Our name touches both our history and who we are today.
When we began in 1674, in Brittany ( France), we provided retreats for women and that’s how our name ‘La Retraite’ stuck. It comes from the French word meaning ‘the retreat’.

Today, we continue together to respond to the human and spiritual needs of our time by journeying with people as they seek inner stillness, meaning and focus in their lives so as to benefit our world. Every person counts !
