The Retreat revealed a vocabulary, a perspective and a discipline that were missing from my formal, religious, and familial education. These “missing pieces” have become the resources with which I discovered what it means to think for myself. And in the process I’ve come to (author) know the (experience) meaning of freedom, substance, and self-possession.
