 There are moments when we need some ‘time out’, away from the busyness and the routine of everyday life. We need prime time to be alone, with ourselves and above all with God. This handbook provides a down to earth, practical 24-step retreat. Adapted for personal or group use, it is inspired by the levelheaded spirituality of Fr Ronald Knox. Considered reflections on daily life and the call of the Gospel, together with practical suggestions, lead to the peace that a return to Christ surely brings.

Fr Paul Dobson is now Parish Priest of St Isaac Jogues Parish, Pickering, in the Archdiocese of Toronto, Canada.

Every once in a while, I want to go on a retreat, but either money or time just doesn't let me go anywhere. I'm, therefore, always looking for really great self-guided retreats that I can do at home. I've tried a lot of online advice, but it always seemed too general. When I read Fr. Dobson's book, however, it felt like just the right amount of guidance and freedom. I split the book into a three day weekend and went to local churches or quiet places to go over the meditations and it really did feel spiritually enriching. Would highly recommend, even if you can't take the three days. I imagine it would be great to even spread out to one meditation a day or if you want a really spiritually impacting day of quiet contemplation.
