At the beginning of November, I hosted the first Nourish Retreat at my house. This was an amazing experience for all of the attendees and all the wonderful ladies who worked so hard to make it happen.
During this weekend, I felt wonderful and alive. I felt it was a great step towards developing a community where women openly support each other to be honest, healthy and to manifest their dreams. We are already planning another retreat at a different location in 2017.
Since the presidential election I have been on an emotional rollercoaster for a variety of reasons. I have spent several days sitting with these emotions and trying to process them and to be at peace with the turmoil that I feel internally.
Reading the news online, it seems many people in the community are also trying to find outlets for a spectrum of emotions: anger at protests, frustration leading to walkouts, hate causing people to openly state awful remarks to their fellow Americans…
So, going forward, how do I contribute positively to the local and greater communities? My goal is increase my involvement in both attending and creating safe, positive activities for people in the community. While I don’t have it all figured out yet (I mean, come on, I am not a guru…) I do have a few things in the pipeline that I will be sharing with you shortly!
Namaste represents the belief that there is a Divine spark within each of us that is located in the heart chakra. The gesture is an acknowledgment of the soul in one by the soul in another. – Yoga Journal
