Loving Kindness Retreat is a Life Changing Success!
As achievers, it’s so easy to set a goal, reach it, and simply forget that it met anything to us, even after we worked so hard to meet the goal. I am so guilty of this and I know so many people that don’t know how to celebrate.
I encourage everyone to define what celebrating means to you. So when you do reach a short-term or long-term goal you engage in a meaningful, joyous ritual to note and acknowledge the passing of large achievement.
So, I am celebrating the success of my first Loving Kindness Self-Acceptance Retreat that was held Saturday.
I had 7 engaged, powerful women attend who dug deep and did some incredible work. We did yoga, ate lots of snacks, laughed, cried, journaled, shared, did more yoga, laughing, crying, sharing and journaling!
The myriad of intentions that brought these women to me included things like: managing a relationship with a family member, overcoming grief, transitioning from one career to another and feeling fearful, dealing with anxiety and depression…it was a deep list of intentions.
I am humbled to say two of these beautiful souls shared that this work and environment ‘changed their lives.’
What a gift that was to be told. As I enter into the coaching and retreat work, I put myself out there to help other people and to hear that the work resonates and creates positive work, not only encourages me to continue but causes me to celebrate and recognize the gifts I have to share. I am momentously grateful for that.
I have to thank Colleen Carroll, of Grace Yoga and Healing Pathways for the use of her gorgeous studio. And I’ll be celebrating this success by planning another retreat for February or March, planning a ski trip simply for my enjoyment, and journaling about everything I learned from this experience. I can’t wait to continue to share this transformative work!
