I was inspired. Let me tell you. I had no idea what I was in for when I signed up for Wisdom Rising back in January. It was my birthday, and I needed a tune up. That means a trip to Kripalu Yoga Retreat Center. It’s a magical place where I can let go of all my worries and be free. So that’s what I was planning to do … 4 months later … in April. Boy was I ready.
I packed my yoga attire and my hippie clothes. (Yes. I do have others - a few suits, Ann Klein, Tahari, etc. but no need for them here.) I was on my way on a sunny morning from Rochester, NY to the Berkshires, a mere 4 1/2 hour drive.
I love this place. Did I mention that? It sits on over 200 acres of sacred land. The building was a former monastery. It’s enormous with 4 levels sprawling in either direction. There are classes and programs from 6 am to 9 pm. The kitchen is pretty phenomenal, too. Especially if you’re vegetarian. Even if you’re not.
Sounds cool, doesn’t it?
“Calling all women for this life-changing meditation retreat and celebration of the Divine Feminine!”
Yes! Count me in.
“Learn to transform core emotional patterns affecting women today - anxiety, anger, inadequacy, depression, grasping, and compulsive doing - into living wisdom.”
This may not only help me, but the women I work with, too. Oooo! Maybe I can incorporate some of the tools into the Goddess Within Retreat.
