Prelude: I am sending a special shout-out of awesome to the uber-talented Adele (and her team) for her amazing song and catchy tune. These words came to me “just like that” while listening to her current hit “Hello” on a flight from Denver back to Canada…….
I recently attended and had the privilege of being one of the presenters at Love2016, a soul(full) retreat with 20 other women in the picturesque town of Breckenridge, Colorado. Life has a magical way of nudging us in directions we never could have imagined, doesn’t it? This was one of those opportunities that I can “feel” and “know” will be life changing. I was finally able to meet with some women that I had only connected with from afar; to connect with new like-minded women and to create life-long friendships. The excitement and energy was beautiful!
Sara Ann, the founder and organizer of Love2016, deserves a standing ovation for this incredible event she dreamed of AND brought to life. After she attended a lively and transformational event in Florida co-hosted by my special friend Leigh, Sara Ann knew she had a calling. One of the beautiful attendees of Love2016 commented on how phenomenal it was that 21 people could be together, most not knowing one another and yet be so connected.
Love2016 was about learning how to love ourselves and others; celebrating and honouring ourselves and others; identifying, examining and releasing our blocks and fears; tapping into our joy; living in abundance; creating new stories; understanding the power of gratitude, kindness and forgiveness; identifying and respecting our uniqueness; relaxing, reviving and renewing. All this happened through great presentations; engaging activities, done alone and in group settings; feeling supported, encouraged and “safe” to share; inspirational opening and closing ceremonies; a lot of fresh air; a lot of freedom to explore and to “just be”; a lot of tears; a lot of laughter; an amazing amount of hugs and a TON OF LOVE!!! It simply does not get any better than that. Shout-out of awesome, of goodness, of gratitude and of joy to you Sara Ann……from all of us.
What a wonder(full) life – we are each created of love and light. Because of this we are all more connected than we realize. Who will cross your path today? Who can you reach out to today? Who can you send love and light to? I send it to me and I send it to YOU!
Together in the journey,
