This is a story of 8 people who traveled to Rishikesh, India on experiential journey to find out what happens when they discover the trip is no longer just a yoga retreat but more of a cultural experience to help them capture the divine within themselves.
A life coach.
A yoga teacher.
A spiritual guide.
And a token male.
A completely eclectic group; each person unafraid to share their unique individuality.
And our leader, so strong yet vulnerable. So wise but still full of amazement magic and wonder. So in love with the culture, the people, the history, the devotion and the beauty of Rishikesh that she casts tears of utter joy.
All of us ready and eager to taste, smell, see, feel, here and share the divine blessings of the motherland. And I, so humbled, grateful and honored to be part of this journey.
Tonight, as I sit in Hardiwar train station waiting my train to Varanasi to arrive, I get to enjoy the presence of the full moon. I, myself, am full of warm memories of my fellow retreat goers, the hotel staff and my new Ram Jhula family.
Each new phase of the moon is an opportune time to reflect on what has transpired and where we are headed. And always a great time to let go of what is no longer serving us.
With the rest of my trip, I intend to feel the magic and embrace it fully. I am releasing any reservations I carry of doubt, fear and insecurity. Going forward, I will do my best embody my truth and share it with the world. I will play BIG.
And I will hold space for all of those I love and support to do the same.
Happy Full moon and full blessings to all.
