It's not easy being the only guy for the weekend, but I suppose someone has to do it!

It's not easy being the only guy for the weekend, but I suppose someone has to do it!

We started out Thursday with Marty Schaerer Batarla teaching us how to wrap a rock to make a pendant.  I think we all did pretty well!  We had opportunities to have reflexology, massage and rest all weekend long.

                           Plenty of yoga did we do and the morning fires were welcome too.  
                           We tie-dyed, some cried (with joy, of course!)  
                           There was plenty of food and trails to walk.  
                           Time to sit and ponder and talk.  

The cookie man showed up Saturday morning for Enneagram yoga class and in the afternoon we had a yoga marathon with Anna, Lindy, Brittany, Lori and Brian taking turns teaching and sharing their yoga.  It was an afternoon of movement and restorative yoga.  Later we split into groups and went out onto the grounds and collected natural items: bark, stones, flowers, leaves and in groups of two or three, made Nature Mandalas.  Astrogirl Suzie Wright shared the significance of our Moon in our birth chart and how many ignore it's relativity to our lives.
Saturday evening we had a bubble blast and bonfire with drum circle led by Julia Gilligan and her sister, Jamie.  

Our guest presenter was Jessica Ringle, friend, therapist and author, who spoke with us about Forgiveness and life in general.  She's just had a novel published entitled Making It Up.  If we see things objectively, we may learn to see ourselves as students and teachers.  This retreat and the response received in feedback, encourages us to look forward to a winter retreat soon.  Where?  Can't say, but be assured that all will be done to make for another memory for us to reflect on.
