such a lovely adventure

this morning a friend, when she saw me standing in my kitchen all tanned and rested from my retreat, said that going away can help us deeply return to ourselves.  and this is what i have found.  going away has helped me sink deeply into parts of myself that i sometimes forget.  while away i remembered my ability to do nothing.  in the sun.  or the shade.  just resting with the earth.  i remembered how to be.  while away i also remembered my beauty.  and more than remembering i experienced it.  i felt it deeply as the sun kissed me and as the ocean hugged all of me. beauty being a wholeness not simply muscles or bone or skin.

we had such a fabulous time together on our adventure.  so many laughs.  so much sharing.  so much incredible food.  some of the most potent time, for me, was eating dinner  with the ocean breeze blowing, the waves crashing, insects singing wildly and four women sharing stories.  all kinds of stories.  deep deep sharing.  it was a powerful time of seeing and being seen.  for me that is what yoga is all about.  connecting deeply with ourselves and with others.
