GRATITUDE LIST No. 2 | DEC 2017
In October I traveled to Granada, Spain to co-lead a retreat called Hearts On Fire with my sister Kayla Floyd, and this past weekend I led a weekend retreat called Elevate near our home in Auburn, CA. The past several months have been rich with experience that want for sharing.
Hearts On Fire was a vulnerable retreat to lead. It was a pulling back of the curtain where Kayla and I shared many of our own rituals, practices and beliefs around what it means to be a connected mystic living in this world...
Scene: I'm sitting at the dining room table with my youngest sister, Kallie and her wife Kaitlyn. They moved out to Young Family Cabin in January and we call them our "landmates." We've all worked together to build them a tent home on our land which I will share more about below. I say, "Um ---- so I kinda want pudding." Kallie is so enthusiastic with her response...
I've got the Bali Shine on me and I want to rub some on you too!
Bali was the completion of a trinity for me, the third retreat and a return to where it all started (I first saw the vision of retreats while on a solo journey in Bali in 2014). The sense of completion is potent, and as I emerge from that space I feel brand new!
Yesterday I launched Shift, The Workshop. This one has been swirling around in my heart and mind for some time. There are so many of you who have reached out saying that you want to attend a Shift Retreat but 7 - 10 days away with little ones at home is proving to be a challenge to organize. I noted your requests, treated them like little seeds and watered them until they grew into something I could recognize - workshops.
