It's Monday morning and my heart is full from this retreat. Leading beautiful women through a life changing weekend is moving, amazing, and a blessing. Each woman present will live on in my heart forever.
It is humbling to take a woman by the hand and lead her deeper into herself, her Self, to discover all that is amazing, wonderful, awesome and incredible within. Our focus is always outside of our self. We work, we give, everything is external. To take a full weekend and look within, turn all energy to your self is essential to our well being. During our midlife years we experience a shift...there is a need that we seek to fill. All that we seek...is within. It takes courage to go within. It takes kindness and self compassion to go within. Through gentle movement and breath we connect to our self in a very special way. The breath is our connection to Soul/Spirit. We take our first breath when we enter the world and our last when we leave.
As we reconnect to our breath...something begins to happen. We have an opportunity...our heart opens to self and the fullness of Life. We discover, uncover and find the extraordinary within. You are the pyramid and the mountain; strong, steady, sturdy. You are the warrior...courageous and strong. You are the sun, the moon. You are the star...so shine, shine, shine.
To every brave, beautiful woman who attended the Marvelous Midlife retreat remember that YOU are brilliant, amazing, beautiful, strong, courageous and wise. Live the vision you create. Reflect on your journaling...remember that YOU are WORTHY of living a Marvelous Life in every possible way. No more playing small...just BE!!! Take your life experience and bring the best version of yourself to Life. Be the change you want to see. Be the Light. Be Love. Be Peace. Be the Wise Ones...bring your wisdom to the world around you. Be the Sage, the Crone, the Elder...the world needs you to shine more brightly than ever.
And above all my dear Ones....I hope you dance.
With love, blessings and the deepest gratitude,
