Almost 2 weeks ago, I was blessed to lead 16 women at my Yoga’licious retreat in Ojai, and I have so many thoughts and feeling swirling today as I sit down to write to you! Though I’ve been leading these retreats for five years now, I can honestly say I am SO inspired by how fiercely these 16 women showed during our 4 days together.
I am humbled by the opportunity to witness them in their creation of acceptance, love, tears, healing, laughter, radical honesty, and self-expression; and I am deeply touched by the ways in which each woman–in her own way–so generously stepped into supporting herself and her community. There were so many moments I had to pinch myself, because in holding space for these radical transformations, I am living out one of my own most intimate and sacred dreams.
When like-minded women gather in a held and intentional space for growth and exploration something electric happens and I witness time and time again the magic and transformation that is created in these spaces. It’s my sincere wish that all women have access to this kind of connection; in truth, the world needs us, and we need each other.
The experience of being fully expressed–free to be all of yourself, unapologetically, within a circle of sacred sisterhood and out in the larger world–is your birthright. Even if you weren’t present in person with us last weekend, I want you to know that this level of connection is possible for you too, and to begin facilitating that for you, Today I’m sharing some of this past retreat’s emergent themes that you can begin to integrate into your own life:
