A seemingly sacred word. Only discussed amongst those who have experienced it. Any mention of it around a non-Kairos person will provoke hysteria from some.
"Hey how cool is that how on Kairos you..."
"Alright, alright, calm your religious ass down."

An overnight Jesuit retreat where you are subjected to meditations and intense journaling, all the while motivated by "surprises."
Emily dreaded going on Kairos, knowing that she would be away from Katie for days, and fearing she would come home shouting, "Live the Fourth!"

1. Mis-spelling of Egyptian city Cairo
2. Self obsessed egotistical Halo 3 Player who values nothing and no-one but himself. Very selfish, not a team player.
1. Hey our holiday in Kairo was good, yeah?
2. "Oh my God Kairo was just sitting back with snipes again, not helping his team, ratio whoring as usual".

A retreat where young adults go to for roughly a week and feel that they become very close together in the activities they engage in during that week. Once that week is over they brag to their peers that did not go about how great Kairos is and how you will never become that close to a person only to realize in a month you will never talk to your Kairos friends again. This obnoxious bragging is called "Kairos High" and is often lasting one to two months after the retreat. While it may be a wonderful retreat it breeds annoying people.
Jon: Hey man I love Kairos. LIVE THE FOURTH MAN!

Leo: No thanks I never went.

Jon: Aww man you'll never be as close as I was with Frank at Kairos, we learned about each other in a whole different level! We're gonna be the best of friends! LIVE THE FOURTH!!

*One month later*

Jon: Yeah I haven't talked to Frank at all... I kinda forgot he existed.

No such luck, my friends. Everyone's Kairos is their own.
