Many of my major life shifts came while I was on a retreat.
Whether it was spending eight hours alone at a friend's house unplugged, surrounded by my sketchpad, colored pencils and Wisdom cards, circling up to dialogue with men and women who were defining the next stage of their lives, or gathering with "sisters" at a yoga & wellness center in the mountains to hear what our "Wise Selves" had to share--these retreats or pauses from everyday life, had a profound impact on who I am today.
