My father had passed away unexpectedly the summer before the retreat and I was struggling with my life as I knew it. His passing raised many questions, and it became apparent to me that the “success” that I was striving for may not be how I wanted to live my life. I was sure that I needed a new outlook but wasn‘t sure where to turn.
The retreat atmosphere was warm and flexible, and the class sessions were my favorite part. I had time and the right environment to process questions and emotions, and I found a dialogue with my spirit which I was able to name and communicate with. I have found since the retreat that I am able to rely on my own opinions and less on those of others.
