Living with a great presence and... aliveness!
I really am so grateful for the changes i feel in myself. I realized that since living in a settlement with the hostility and threats as a part of my daily life, I have been dealing with these challenges by armoring myself and living in survival mode much of the time. Since the retreat I have let go of these defenses and simply feel myself living with a great presence and... aliveness! I returned home to an outbreak of measles and was able to deal with it all with calm and ease - in the past I would have been breaking down inside but forcing myself to cope. Love to you all and our singing together is a precious amazing gift I will keep with me always.
