Retreat. It’s a noun, it’s a verb, it’s a small word with so much meaning. It conjures up images of escaping, running off, hiding away, and finding seclusion. It also evokes thoughts of turning inwards and coming back to self. Retreating not only means withdrawing, but letting go of things that do not serve you well and returning to the embrace of universal unconditional love.
For me, retreat means finding my way to bliss. When I think of somewhere I would want to retreat to, I envision a place full of sunshine and warmth, surrounded by love and friendship, with offerings of delicious and healthy food. I think of a place where I am able to sit still in quiet serenity, to relax, meditate, contemplate, and reflect. I think of journeying within and reconnecting with my self to reawaken my dreams, and re-ignite my passion and inspiration, as well as extending outwards to connect with others of like mind and spirit.
I finds retreat in the mystical lands of the Maya. Each year I look forward to returning to familiar places and seeing some familiar faces too. Venturing deep into the mysteries of the Maya, I find solace and peace and tranquillity. The warm sun, delicious traditional foods, and friendly locals always make me feel welcome; so much so, that I look forward to our Maya Sacred Path to 2012 trip each year. This year I will also be joined by her daughter on our Awaken the Maya Spirit Within journey, making this retreat extra special.
