A Healing Retreat

IMG_2856

 

Several months ago my friend Mary Gaetjens asked me to drive with her to a retreat in Idyllwild, California. At that moment, I was feeling way too attached to my schedule, and I knew it was time to get away from my to-do list. Sometimes just the right thing arrives at just the right time.

The retreat was called Sound and Silence. There was silent meditation, chanting, good food and quiet time in a stunningly beautiful place

It was perfect. The photo above is of one of the 12 women I shared this extraordinary time with. I had forgotten how deeply restorative a retreat can be.

There is so much more I want to say about this adventure, but for now, I think the photo pretty much sums up the whole experience.

  1. Nice reminder, Jeri! I find I need little retreats every day (meditation, chanting, simple quiet time) – and then longer retreats periodically (such as the one you describe). Just reading your post brought me to a place of peace and recognition, and I breathed a deep sigh. Thank you!
