Oxford dictionary defines “retreat” as a period of time when someone takes break from their usual activities and go to a quiet place for prayer, meditation, self-introspection. On the other hand, in eight limbs of Raja Yoga, the fifth limb of ‘Pratyahara’ is also termed as “retreat” which means withdrawal of the senses.
In broader perspective, both meanings are same, indicate a period of time when we take a break from our usual activities and come to a peaceful place and surroundings where with yogic techniques we can withdraw the senses and connect with our inspiration, motivation and goal of the life and then again go back to our world to perform all our duties in a more efficient way.
