In a recent Newsletter, I asked "Do You Retreat?" It's becoming a necessary part of my life. I didn't know I was missing out until I attended one (by chance, really).
The two retreats I attended in 2014 were Serendipity in the Outer Banks, NC and Soul Painting in Asheville, NC. For the next five days, I'm attending Wild Roots Sacred Wings in Ojai, CA. This retreat is put on by Animyst, the same creators of Serendipity.
I retreat to circle with other women, give myself time to think, listen to stories and knowledge of others, set new goals & dreams, and go deeper. It's so easy to live "on the surface" and I find myself getting stuck there again and again. Retreats are one way to remind me to slow down, sink in, breathe, and remember my intentions.
I honestly have no idea what we'll be doing over the next five days, but I completely trust the women that put these on and know it will be amazing. They put so much time and love into what they do.
