This past weekend I led a weekend retreat in the Harper's Ferry area. I know I’ve said this previously, but retreats are one of my absolute favorite things, combining all my loves in one tidy little package…connection, movement, food, adventure…bliss.
One of my highlights during every retreat I’ve led is the first night, after our first practice and as folks are sitting down to eat dinner. Seeing people who have never met each other connect, get to know each other, find areas of life in common is a pretty magical thing to watch. That process of human connection, it’s just amazing.
These past three years have been weird in terms of human connection, right? They have been hard to navigate, broken up, full of anxiety around connection…they’ve been complicated to say the least.
I hope, despite the anxiety of these past few years, as this new year begins, we can find more spaces and times to connect with those in our lives in a nourishing way, in a way that allows us as individuals to thrive.
Have an amazingly connected week, my friends.
