Even after two weeks of being home after the New Years retreat, I can still feel the warmth of the fire, the kindness of the people I met, and the beautiful hills and red dirt, not to mention the stillness surrounding everything. What a priviledge it is to teach on that holy ground. Holding sacred space, practicing deep listening, creating writing and art anew, and sharing with others is a marvelous delight. We shared tears and laughter, hopes and dream, and new possibilities for the future. When a circle of like minded people gather together with the intention of exploring their lives in a deep way, magic is alive and present. I thank all of the participants for your courageous hearts and loving natures. I thank the animals and the spirits of those who came before us to this land. I thank the hard working staff at Ghost Ranch. Peace to everyone this year, no exceptions.
