This difference with this retreat is that it is done in total silence for 10 days. No talking, no writing, no reading, no exercise and above all NO PHONE! I have never gone 10 days without all of these elements, but surprisingly the one I am kind of the most nervous about is 10 days without my phone.
I’m an admitted addict, I get the phantom vibrations when I don’t have my phone near me and I would rather be without my wallet then my phone (my Starbucks app would still allow me to buy coffee).
I think I’m going to do next week without my phone. From Monday May 5th – Friday May 9th I’m going to turn it off. I’ll post a quick update everyday here so everyone can enjoy my withdrawal! Wish me luck
