Winter Robins

Are you caring for your most precious self with time for the unknown?

Today slowing down reminded me that we live in worlds within worlds. We forget there is another way to be right now until we open a door. This morning I opened a door.

Seattle’s been on the edge waiting for a record breaking snow storm to land. Seeing snow out the window, I woke up knowing I could take my time. Inside looking out, the world was quiet. Snapping my parka over my PJ’s, I decided to video the falling snow.

I opened the door surprised to see imprinted evidence of birds visiting in the soft white snow gathering beneath my feet. Feeling the chill of the winter’s day on my bare legs, I gave myself space to explore what was present, the activity of life outside.

Birds had come knocking on my door. I heard them calling without consciously knowing they were in town. Without opening the door early this morning I would have missed what happened next. What appeared to be quiet was instead active.

The sky was filled with calling birds swooping down glimmering high wires of light. Our garden was under the spell of the snowfall. High above with snow falling to earth,the Japanese maple was dotted with red puffy breasted robins.. Stark black boughs holding shadows of light spoke to me of quiet strength. Feeling peacefully held in this moment, I sat facing a family of birds, resting together.

A retreat is a portal into a world within the your well known world. It takes the willingness to leave the day’s agenda to follow a calling. Known or unknown, it begins with by taking the first step off the worn path of habit’s and responsibilities. You are invited to go on a healing retreat into stillness.

On February 7th’s 12 Sessions By Phone or February 11th’s Live Retreat Into Stillness you will find the next doorway that’s ready to open.

Healing happens when we retreat from busyness with a willingness to listen to our body. In the peacefulness of a healing retreat you will honor the healing guidance of stillness, the wisdom of intentional movement and the deep healing potential of CranioSacral. Each group retreat is held in our light filled solarium surrounded by the garden’s seasonal beauty.

Retreat Into Stillness is a time for you to be present to all the inner worlds of your body, by opening doors to more ease, peace, and joy.
