Each year, the session "Re-treating my life" is offered to people who are about to live, are living or have recently lived the transition to retirement.

A new stage of life is beginning. What meaning should be given to this new stage? How to approach it? A five-day session to better live this passage and find a new impetus to lead a balanced and harmonious life. This session is not a spiritual retreat.

This session, which does not neglect the spiritual dimension of the person, is a journey of reflection and human formation adapted to all: 55...60...65 years old... future retiree, retired or spouse, married, cohabitant, widowed, separated, divorced, single...

I live the transition to retirement or I get ready: what orientation? What is the meaning of the years to come? What new impetus to bring? 
The themes are in touch with our daily life and enlightened by contributions on the human and spiritual levels. 
Re-treating my life aims to accompany everyone in their issues of the moment, in the light of the Gospel: give meaning to the coming years, welcome new place in the world, find a relationship balance, etc.
