Finding my way to do something I love with all my heart, and change complete directions, has been one of the biggest challenges of my life so far. It took me a really long time to find my path, yet now I’m on it, has bought fulfilment I could not have predicted, and I know that I am 100% doing what I was meant to be doing in this world.
Making big decisions in the directions of your dreams can be a little daunting at times. Yet conscious choice can help you feel empowered, and there for I ask you the question, "What would you choose if you had no fear?"
“Feel the fear and do it anyway”
This quote from Susan Jeffers has been one of my mantras this year.
Our second retreat in the Pyrenees, happened in the last week of September. You can see some pictures here. It was amazing good. I couldn't have asked for a better group. But the thing is.. I did. I asked for this group of feareless, real women, always with a smile, open to new experiences and ready to discover new ways to approach life.
So be aware: maybe one day I’ll ask for you :)
"Thank YOU..., Manuela at the first place, but also Michel & Nadine, for giving us what we were searching for..., & maybe even more... ! Warmth, authenticity, respect for each other..., but also for ourselves ..., a safe feeling, a gorgeous silent place in a splendid nature..., time to rest... & time to share (but only if we wanted that...), professional guidance without the academic 'strengthness'..., as well for the meditation part, as for the horse riding, as for the yoga! I learned more in this 5 days meditation than I did in the 8 week course I followed last year! Thank you so much, Manuela, for telling us the 'essentials of mindfulness' with, on one side the gravity it deserves..., & on the other side the smoothness it needs to be shared..., & integrated! I already missed it today..., & will take time tomorrow to meditate... Namaste ..."
