I just returned from an eight day yoga retreat and training on the beautiful Greek Isle of Crete. Studying with Annie Carpenter and yogi friends from around the world is always a true blessing! I highly recommend stepping out of the everyday routine to:

Reconnect — Root to rebound. The higher the growth up, the deeper must be the enrooting. Connect deeply within and without. Be still and know.

Explore — Let’s play! Celebrate. What captures your attention? Time is a great luxury. “Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.” ~ Helen Keller

Tune In — Gently return to center. What do you really need right now? Inquiry leads to more specificity.

Relax — Where can you soften? Presence and awareness encourage healing.

Engage — Be fascinated in possibility. Widen your circle. “Where would you have me go? What would you have me do? What would you have me say and to whom?” ~ Marianne Williamson

Appreciate — Let an inner smile soften your face. “I know precisely what you need to draw nearer to Me. Go through each day looking for what I have prepared for you. Accept every event as My hand-tailored provision for your needs. When you view your life this way, the most reasonable response is to be thankful. Do not reject any of My gifts; find Me in every situation.” ~ Jesus Calling, May 29

Take Away — Insights and integration — Notice what you need to do to stay present, passionate, and peaceful. Be open to growth and transformation.

RETREATS do not have to be huge getaways. You can find a place of renewal and adventure in even the small and simple moments of life.

Where are your heart and soul calling you? ❤️

“Oh the places you’ll go.” 😊 ~ Dr. Seuss
