Important Retreat Facilities Terms

The corporate convention has become a staple of the American business culture. Every year, industry veterans are shuttled to venues across the country to discuss their trades. But convention facilities have to operate year round. They need to attract other events aside from the annual corporate retreat. The retreat business is actually filled with different groups of people who flock to the same center every year as part of a mass migration. There are spiritual retreats catering to Buddhists and Christians as well as astronomical retreats for space enthusiasts. Almost every group imaginable likes to gather its like-minded members together in one room for a weekend. Here are five important terms used by the retreat facilities that cater to the needs of these groups.

  • Dharma - This is a term that generally describes a spiritual retreat attended by Buddhists. It has also been adopted by the yoga community. Dharma retreats can be houses of worship, or simply quiet mountain retreats ideal for meditation.
  • Convention Center - These mammoth complexes can be found in America's major cities from Los Angeles to New York. The biggest businesses such as the automotive and pharmaceutical industries, are the only ones large enough to require or afford this sort of facility.
  • Conference VIP - Many retreats bestow VIP status on certain attendants. This specialized status allows the VIPs to avail themselves of reserved house areas and all the prized amenities of a luxury facility like a hotel.
  • Event Coordinator - These are the professionals who work at retreat venues to make sure that each event goes smoothly. Event coordinators may be highly visible. At events such as marriage ceremonies they tend to remain invisible until something goes wrong.
  • Banquet Hall - A large dining room built to accommodate hundreds of hungry patrons. These are popular locations for formal feasts.

    Psychologists have touted the benefits of getting away from our everyday environments and routines for a period of time. These holidays, whether brief or extended, provide many psychological benefits. Allowing the mind to take a break from the pressures of worry and stress provides refreshment and fresh perspective. When we are able to squeeze a getaway into our personal schedules, we improve our sense of well being and our physical health. Taking a vacation to a retreat facility or center is one way to relax and make room in your life to take care of yourself. A retreat center may take many forms and be in a variety of locations. Some are hotel like and focus on physical rejuvenation and pampering. They may offer spa treatments with skin treatments, foods meant to detox and cleanse the body, and beauty consultations. Other more rustic getaways may focus on spiritual health through yoga and meditation. The length of stay varies from weekend packages to a full week or longer. Some all inclusive facilities serve as counseling centers for couples. Weekend groups may focus on strengthening marriage or family relationships. Spiritual conferences may target specific areas of attendees lives that they are seeking to improve such as parenting skills. Longer term stays are offered at centers that focus on recovery from drug or alcohol addictions. The ideal facility is located in a setting that is relaxing and away from busy lifestyles. Yoga training surrounded by beautiful mountains has spiritual and health benefits. Taking time to cleanse and care for ones physical and emotional well being near the healing sound of the ocean is more than just a vacation or travel for its own sake. A retreat experience offers the chance to truly relax and focus on what is important in your life.
