I got home last night around 7:30 and Kelly and I went and got some dinner on South Congress which was awesome. We had a lovely meal, great conversation and enjoyed a delightful reunion.
My retreat was awesome. I met some amazing people and did some great work for myself. I learned a lot and was able to experience a profound level of forgiveness, compassion and connection in a lot of ways. I participated in an 8-day program developed by The Hoffman Institute. I have known several people over the years who have gone through "The Process" and I cannot recommend it highly enough. It is a great program with highly skilled faculty, awesome facilities, great results, good food and a fantastic message of Light, healing and inspiration. Really wonderful. (www.hoffmaninstitute.org) More insights, reflections and contemplations to come. For now, I am just allowing the experience to settle and integrate inside myself for a while.
Today, I slept in, did some journal writing, went on a walk, ate lunch, caught up on some email, did an awesome asana practice and then made dinner. Here I am checking in in blog land and getting ready for the day tomorrow. I teach at 4:30 at Castle Hill so please join me for Level 2-4. I am excited to be back and I am looking forward to seeing everyone this week. I will be around until February 12 and then gone through February 22 on a retreat in Mexico (www.milagroretreats.com) with a few days R&R with Kelly tacked on the end- yoga, surfing, fantastic food and great company- and it is not too alte to sign up and join us.
It seems like a perfect thing to be doing really. One thing I got very clear on on my trip was the importance of having fun and I cannot think of something more fun to do then spending a week doing yoga, surfing and hanging out in Mexico contemplating The Magic of Love. And Kelly is going to come with me which is a super fun thing.
All right then- that is it for now. I am happy to be back home and I am so glad I took the time to do some work for myself. I feel somehow different and yet more "me" than ever.
One thing I can share for fun is the adventures of my stuffed moose on the way home from California. In the program there is this playful part where each participants receives a stuffed animal. I got a moose who had all kinds of fun on the way home.
Here is Mr. Moose all packed up and ready for an adventure:
