Every retreat is uniquely co-created through each person’s presence, so thank you for saying yes and bringing your most authentic self to the circle as we collectively explored how to nurture small shifts in our hearts “From Me to We”. Anya beautifully summed it up in her opening share, “It’s not just about CREATING community but ACCEPTING community to start with. Accepting that ‘me’ has been a part of ‘we’, all along.” We are so grateful to the many hearts and hands who contributed to this retreat in so many wonderful ways — as Mita shared afterwards, the co-creative nature of our day together created a whole that was far greater and more beautiful than the sum of its parts.
Below you’ll find links to all the readings and music that was shared at the retreat, so that you can enjoy it later as well. 🙂
