Could easily live in a tree, just let me be surrounded by nature. Found this abode and thought, this would do just fine…
One can dream and every moment spent in nature brings the feeling and photography is the vehicle which transports. So two days ago, when my mini retreat was finally here, to say I was elated would be an understatement. Below is the meetup description;
Take time away to really connect within. Experiences in nature enhance our ability to feel connected and tune in to our own spiritual nature. In this mini retreat we will focus on the essence of birds, flight and the element of air. Spending time in nature allows you to commune with other life forms and truly understand and FEEL how your life force is connected and is the same energy that exists everywhere. Meeting in a small group, we will share our experiences, our life challenges and our needs as a way to explore the possibilities for creating a fulfilling and balanced life. We will create a craft using feathers and other objects from nature, such as a wand, prayer stick, talking stick or dream catcher, to remind you of this experience. Come away with a more grounded sense of purpose, clarity and rejuvenation to be able to live life to the fullest.
Ordinarily would be reserved about such a gathering, meeting new people and making a “wand thingy” really made me question any form of mysticism or cultist quack encounters. Nevertheless, to say I was pleasantly surprised is an understatement, more like strikingly humbled.
During an impromptu moment, was led to this little box, opened it up and found a stack of cards. In this box, found out later, was every animal God has created. Fingered through the stack, stopped, picked a card, drew it out, held it up and guess what it was!
Yup…i cried…and share little glimpses with you all this blessed encounter
