Spiritual Retreats

In honor of Martin Luther King day  I wish you tranquility, a spiritual retreat for yourself and others.

Yesterday I watched a Mandala Ceremony for dispersement.  These monks travel around the world creating beauty as an act of compassion.

Compassion means empathy not pity.  I dont know about you, but pity stings me, compassion connects me.

Sometimes ?  Why do we constantly berate ourselves, setting our own bar higher, instead of applauding the good things we achieve?

Last year, as part of my journey to wholeness, I went to Pamelah Landers for a hand analysis.  Do you know that the most impactful thing she told me was that I need to be very very kind to myself?

Have you been very kind to yourself?  Allow yourself a moment every day to enjoy who you are. Sit in a comfy chair and feel good about yourself.  Put up a piece of art that talks to you, or arrange a vase of flowers to delight you.

Create your own spiritual retreat and develop meditation techniques that speak to the strength in you.

How do you honor yourself?  Where do you go, or what do you do to remember your strengths ?
