few words are needed to share the joy we experienced on our recent adventure.
In a few weeks I will leave Canada and fly to Barbados. This is my fourth Raw Food Yoga Adventure retreat. And I’m excited. I am so looking forward to drawing hearts in the sand. Someday I hope that you will be able to join me. I will post photos from Barbados! But I look forward to showing you in real life!
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.

there is something so rewarding about bringing people together. yesterday i got to do just that. a beautiful group of people gathered in the forest by the river. it was sunny and cold. the snow was deep. we played together all day. yoga, poetry, raw food. walking, river, snow sleeps. and tea. incredible forest tea. here are a few photos from our day retreat.
gotta love taking the day away!
