few words are needed to share the joy we experienced on our recent adventure.

the forest close to home

last night i spent a beautiful evening in the forest experiencing a drum being born.  there was a fire and drumming and singing.  such a healing circle.  this forest, full of cedar and pines, by the river is where i offer retreats a few times a year.

chantalle's birthday river 2012 003i have a retreat at there, at riversound retreat, in a few weeks.  i am so excited to spend the day there.  teaching yoga and sharing raw food and the joys of spending time in the forest.  after last night i am inspired to often “forest sitting” as part of our day.  45 minutes of simply sitting and receiving the forest.  not walking.  no writing or reading.  just sitting still and experiencing whatever we experience.

what do you think about that?

so lovely to hear….

i just received this email and i thought i would share.  i feel so blessed to have been teaching yoga for almost 19 years now.  i love what i do.  and i love creating retreats.  and it is so thrilling that others love what they experience.  i hope you can join me someday too.

“Hi Sweets,

Thank YOU for such a wonderful day! Sorry for the late reply. I had a wonderful day with you all. A little bit of nurturing was exactly what I needed. And it started the moment I walked in the door and you helped me with my stuck coat zipper! I’m really glad I gave myself the gift of your retreat. Trying something new, recharging my batteries, and feeling a sense of communion with others – I experienced it all! The best, what I take from it most though, is the warmth of your kindness. So glad you do what you do! I always felt the love, even when ‘Mama Chantalle’ made me eat my greens and go outside for exercise! Happy I did though, it’s not every day that I get to roll down hills with new friends   Rohen and I loved, loved, loved our pizza lunch with chocolate balls dessert the next day. Still thinking about the food! Yummm!

Best,
Catherine

PS – I think you should be cloned. The world needs more Chantalles!”
