The Retreat was Magic
The retreat was MAGIC. The photo above was taken at the end of our release and remembrance ceremony - that is a very large sky lantern we are lighting. Most of the weekend was spent in "Kairos" or spirit time - thanks to our wonderful Saturday morning speaker, Alicia (you can meet Alicia at the blog, "Forever Changed" - she is on the blog roll to the right) we learned lots about Kairos and the healing power of the spirit time experience.
The Grief Project has completed a one year cycle of service to the bereaved and its impact is enormous. So many widowed are talking about how "they have been changed/healed/transformed" by Sacred Journey and The Grief Project. My heart is full.
I returned home late Sunday, unpacked, did laundry, repacked and after an acupuncture appointment this morning, I will be headed to the airport to depart for San Francisco. Tonight I will be in Napa. I will stay in a hotel, get my car in the morning and then I am going to visit the Senior Services Center, a home health care agency and other gather other resources for the aging journey ahead for Mother (and me as her support person).
Wednesday afternoon, I will motor on up to Yountville to begin my visit with Mother. I will be posting while in California. A closing note: I am humbled that TGP is really up and off the ground and that it is making an impact. For those of us who work in the nonprofit sector - there is no better thing to hear than our work changed a life. That is the reason to be. Many blessings to everyone - I will catch you from California. Big Hugs.
