THIS is what I Crave. Awakening in the dark cool morning with that fresh smell of the somewhat damp desert. I had watched the stars move across the sky all night, and watched as they began to fade as the morning drew near, I was camped
I have been exploring transformation and what that means. It is an actual shift in your reality, where you are being or doing something different, and the universe responds in a different way. You can see or feel the difference, it is measurable, noticeable.
On my run today, I stopped at one of my favorite places by the falls along this amazing river. I love running through the woods beside the river and in the forest. I love the smell of the damp earth, the fog and the mist, and the soft earth under my feet.
We have returned from an amazing journey on this years Women's Wilderness Wisdom Journeys Spring, Weekend Retreat. These women had been preparing for weeks, and some for months before we gathered. Enjoy the journey through the slideshow I created ~
I recently guided a Virtual Journey to guide you to Access Your Inner Star Essence. I have been finding that many people I talk with have a knowing that they have this inner knowledge, inner light, and connection with the universe however they find themselves feeling blocked, lacking the luster and shine somewhere in their lives.
Having and cultivating a relationship with your Inner Star Essence is essential to living and creating your life from the brilliance of who you are.
This past November I traveled to Montreal to participate in the Association for Experiential Education's ActivatEE presentations at the AEE International Conference. This was a journey for me to get here. My struggle for health and subsequent journey through life has drastically changed the way I experience my current life and my surroundings.
It is the Autumnal Equinox here in Maine and the leaves are starting to turn to brighter colors. As the nights begin to get cooler, the day and night time are equalized, and the trees begin to go inward preparing for the winter ahead. It is a good time take a look at how we are in our lives. Have we become too busy to take care of ourselves? Do we need to slow down and re-evaluate our lifestyles for the changing seasons?
To Access Wild places in Nature allows us the time and space to connect with the unique Wild that resides inside each of us. As we begin to strip away the everyday noises and clutter of modern life and enter into the unknown, and into the wilderness..our senses sharpen..and our listening deepens.
These Wilderness Journeys pull us slightly out of our comfort zone..with a little adventure and uncertainty we are asked to see ourselves in a real way, held by a small community of supportive women. Many enjoyed relaxation, connection, and time away from the everyday to recharge and find spiritual direction. Many were called to offer gifts, some planned and some spontaneous to empower ourselves, deepen our wisdom, and let each other shine. Some offerings in addition to my own this year were different styles of Yoga, Plant Medicine, Edible Plants, Nourishing Meals, Songs, and Unique ways to Connect with the Earth. It is such a blessing to be a part of this community and sooooo Grateful for your Wisdom Sharing! Thank you to all who participated. Below enjoy the journey through these pictures.
