Well hello there…it’s been a while!
Blogging has taken a back seat as I’ve been working on my business, moving house (again!) and much more.
It’s been a big year, both on a personal and business level. Unsettling and upsetting and even painful in some ways but ultimately fun, exciting and expansive.
After attending, and speaking at, the absolutely beaufitul Curious Hearts Retreat by Becca Posterino last weekend I thought it was the perfect time to start sharing with you again.
Last Sunday was the first time I’ve ever attended a day retreat and it was amazing. To stop and just be was just what my soul needed. And to share it with 10 other lovely women was special. There was such a beautiful energy present.
The day began with yoga – I haven’t done much yoga since moving to Canberra and my body loved it!
Becca then led us through a seated meditation – WOW! What insights! The main message that came through was LOVE MORE, GIVE MORE and FORGIVE. The perfect message for me as 2016 draws to a close.
Next up we took what Becca had told us about meditation and moved into a walking meditation. How lovely…a walk in nature around Lake Burley Griffin. Being fully present the colours of nature came alive – the green of the trees and surrounding hills, the bright blue of the sky against the beautiful white wispy clouds. It was so refreshing.
After a scrumptious vegan lunch we took some time to journal. This isn’t something I do often and again some lovely insights came through. My vision for 2017 is slowly coming together and it’s all about ease and flow and acceptance.
Then, I got to speak a little about my passion, Aromatherapy. This was the first time I’ve spoken to a group of people, and while I know I have a lot to improve upon, I really enjoyed it. I created a Curious Hearts signature blend that I shared with everyone as well as a little bit about blending and what to look for when purchasing essential oils.
We finished the day with a Yin yoga session which was just perfect.
I felt so rejuvenated and balanced. It was a huge reminder to take time out more regularly. I always say that consistency is key to creating the lifestyle you desire and this goes for STOPPING as well as DOING.
