  • “I’ve learned so much about mindfulness meditation from you I never thought I’d meditate  (me: I helped you to open the window a little bit to being present? ) Yes!- and not jump out of it!"   ~ Raoul

  • "EMBODYING PRACTICE 2018 was a wonderful experience for me and a much-needed restorative time to set intentions on creating and maintaining a time for daily practice in 2018."   ~ Debra

  • "I found the retreat to be an amazing opportunity for me, a non-practitioner, to experience multi modalities of mindfulness and awareness.   It was life changing and is I think extremely useful in today’s fast paced, always on world.  Every person, everywhere would benefit from participating and it might actually make our lives more compassionate, authentic and enjoyable."    ~Carole

  • "So happy to have met  you and for sharing an amazing weekend together. I can honesty say that this was life changing for me. I have learned that I may not be able to control what happens in life, but I can control my reactions. Feeling the emotion and being kind to it and to myself has given back the control for peaceful living. Thank you all for this great gift! "   ~ Donna

  • "Thank you for all the warmth, openness, and kindness you shared during the retreat, it was a truly special weekend."    ~Heather

Can we all agree that August is a Blur?

I have found some comfort in this realization.
Nothing should happen in August other than be still, be with others, but more importantly: Be With Yourself.

August is time for YOUR retreat - so truly relax, express and celebrate yourself.

 

So I beckon you, when you have opportunities to be alone do the following:

Listen to the Rain

Hear the Crystal Silence of the Mountains

See Movement in Fields of Grass

Swim in Healing Waters

Make Music

Make Art

Write Down the Bones

Experiment with Beauty

 

Be Unique + Enjoy the Lovely Blur

And if you want homework, read these epic poems for inspiration!

The first lines alone will send you into your space, or theirs.

 

Song of Myself by Walt Whitman

“I celebrate myself, and sing myself,

And what I assume you shall assume,

For every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you.”

 

Renascence by Edna St. Vincent Millay

“All I could see from where I stood

Was three long mountains and a wood;

I turned and looked another way,

And saw three islands in a bay.”
