retreat…September 15, 2010
Just now looking at that word ‘retreat’ I realise it isn’t about getting away, running away from something…. re treat means remembering to ‘treat’ yourself… I got to re-frame a couple of things like that whilst I was away at that place pictured above. It’s amazing how your mind can function and think clearly with a little space and not so many distractions! All the people I met – staff and visitors were beautiful – very easy to be with when I wanted company. Everywhere I looked there was beauty – scenery, scented flowers, flowing water and animal friends that visited me every day – the lone magpie, a finch couple and my favourite lizard ‘Elvis’…. The organic food was amazing and makes me look at my diet in a fresh light (for those of you wanting great information on nutrition – check out Delia…) And don’t underestimate the magic of healing and touch whatever form it takes – they offer everything!

I will continue my yoga practice (every day?). I will continue my meditation (every day?). I will do my best to eat well….
