On retreat, we have the opportunity to connect. We create new friendships and bond with the ones we love, whether it be on a hike, while sharing a meal, or in our morning yoga practice. Then we memorialize our experience on social media, by sharing the bliss we felt through mindful movement, wholesome eating and new friendships.
But somewhere beneath all the social gathering and sharing, are the sacred moments of solitude. That sweet silence where there is just you, your heart and the earth beneath your feet. There is space where you are no ones’ parent, partner or sibling, and you are not defined by your professional goals. You are just you. The same you you have always been. The you that has arrived at this very moment.
We need to retreat sometimes. We are crying out for it! Although we can thrive on the unity of action at a bootcamp, or the wholesome community we experience at a studio, we need to reconnect with our sense of Self in order to stay healthy and whole.
With hectic commutes, busy children and demanding work weeks, connecting with your authentic Self can get lost in the mix. It is however there for us at the head of the trail or in our final Savasana, if we can remember how important it is to be connected to You.
