"Connect With Your Playful Nature" Retreat
How many of us feel guilty taking time out for ourselves? Did you ever plan a day of play only to find it impossible to enjoy because all you could think about was the laundry, the never-ending dishes, a project at work, the kids' sports schedules, the things you feel you "should" be doing? Or have you simply noticed yourself feeling blocked and less creative, less optimistic, or far removed from the energizing childlike feelings of joy and excitement?
Dishing With The Diva is hosting our very first retreat, "Connect With Your Playful Nature", with a group of ladies who have generously volunteered to take the day off from worries and responsibilities to allow us to help them find their hearts and refresh their spirits by breaking away from the routine and monotonous, and rediscovering where their souls, hearts and minds are lighter and happier. We will allow the waves to carry us across the ocean to Catalina Island for the day to meditate, connect with nature, relax, and find the joy in being present enough to hear our own inner voices and act on however our hearts beckon us to play, whether quiet or loud, still and reflective, or active and silly. Our time during this retreat is meant to open our awareness to the playfulness deep within, allowing the child in us to come out and play.
To help disconnect from what we "should be" doing and focus on play, we are leaving all cell phones behind with the DWTD team (except one phone for posting tweets and in case of emergency, but with no incoming texts or calls).
This is our very first of what we hope will be many more retreats!
