It's hard to summarize an entire week of conscious connection, taking great care of ourselves, and being in paradise into one blog post. But I'm gonna try. Here are 5 of my favorite moments from AWAKEN 2019.
1. NIGHT 1 --
Meeting all of the incredible women I've been communicating with over the course of the year, gathering in the lifted shala up high in the Costa Rican jungle, receiving our first guided meditation under the stars with the monkeys hooting and hollering in the background.
2. CONNECTING IN A NEW SPACE --
The retreat center keeps expanding and upgrading, so this year we had a new space for our daily curriculum. With floor to ceiling windows, we could see the entire ocean AND the jungle (while sitting in AC in the heat of the day - phew!). What a treat to be held in this new space while we did our deep work.
3. WATCHING THE WOMEN CONNECT --
It is always uncanny to see who partners with who, and to uncover the Divine hand in it all. The partnerships were so special, guided by something otherworldly. Witnessing these connections makes me giddy. My hope is that these partnerships stay in tact long beyond the days of retreat.
4. A SPECIAL BIRTHDAY --
One of my fav things to do on retreats is celebrate a woman's journey around the sun another time. This year, we had a special 59th birthday that happened while we were there. This woman was sweet and modest, hilarious and open. She admittedly was "not a birthday person." But I think we may have changed that this year. Wink wink.
5. BONFIRE ON THE BEACH/FULL MOON --
After a ceremony on the beach, we all made our way down to the water as the fire burned, and the moon shone brightly. I had a headache all day this day. But when we circled up and closed with our OM circle, my headache dissipated. It felt like my own personal sound-healing. There is nothing more sacred then being under the stars and full moon with a gaggle of glowing Goddesses.
