A Little Taste of Our Sanctuary

“Each positive thought is your refuge and your sanctuary, where in that thoughtful moment, you are safe.”
~ Bryant McGill, Simple Reminders: Inspiration for Living Your Best Life

 

It’s our final day of the 2014 Soul Sanctuary Retreat, and I thought I’d share just a tiny part of what we’ve been doing.

We’ve come together and we’ve made magic, we’ve meditated and we’ve shared stories that help with our healing and becoming.

We’ve made a collective mandala, that holds all of our energies, personalities, love and positive intentions.

And we’ve turned that mandala into individual talismans with crystals and colours that support us, and our power chakras. Yep, that’s right. We made gorgeous jewels!

We created Vision Boards to uplift us in the coming months, and to remind us of what is important in our lives, and the future we wish to actively manifest for ourselves.

We’ve made a personal Sacred Mandala that holds our poetry and philosophy for 2015 – they are symbolic of all that is dear to us and all that we are becoming.

We’ve wandered through the gardens, having time in nature, and connecting with the earth. And we’ve feasted on a smorgasbord of delicious fresh food, all local and organic and cooked by our own personal chefs – Deb and Claire. (We love you!!!)

We’ve talked with fairies and Guides, learned how to do readings for each another, and found ways to deeply tap into our own intuition and inner knowing.

We’ve played with essential oils, learned new ways to ground, connect, release and nurture ourselves. We’ve had healings and been given oils and essences just for us. We’ve enjoyed massive nurture, friendship, laughter, a few tears, and loads of hugs.

In short, it’s been a fabulous time.

I can’t wait for Soul Sanctuary 2015 so we can do it all again!

  1. It all sounds so wonderful…I am sorely in need of what you have been doing, being and becoming. I just don’t know how to do it at this point in time…it will pass, but it feels not so good at the moment. I love reading of all the joy, fun and learning you have shared. Well done everyone. With love. M

  2. Your retreat looks and sounds like an amazing and loving experience! I am so happy for you lovely ladies that could attend! what a wonderful way to end and start anew 2014/15.

  3. I just found your blog through freeda at freedanichols and have done a quick look through. It is an awesome blog and I am glad to have found it.

  4. By divine guidance I found you and your blog and I can’t get enough. I’ve laughed at cafe dog and cried when Ben told you a story when you were in bed in excruciating pain with Lyme disease. I’m inspired and in awe of your gifts and warmth. Thank you for touching my soul, Nicole. Anne
