I am filled with the deepest gratitude for everyone who made the magic of our first retreat come together. Instructors, volunteers, and participants filled my heart to the brim this weekend, and I’m still processing all of the goodness. Conscious connections, profound learning, and a special sort of rejuvenation were made possible by all of our energies gathering with intention. I’m still drifting down to reality from cloud nine and still receiving messages of heartfelt gratitude from people who were moved by their experience here. We laughed, cried, shared, ate, moved, meditated, listened, hiked in silence, burned up old patterns and paradigms that no longer served us in a crackling bonfire, and transcended to another level of knowing ourselves and how to cultivate balance and wellness under a starry Driftless sky. It was just what we all needed.
