I don't know if you remember, but a few posts back I mentioned something about pedalling like crazy to light some fires. I don't know how you amazing people who can remain publicly very present while still plotting a deliciously creative adventure, rich with details and minutia, do it. Man, you're awesome.
All the work and focus and semi-presence here has culminated into a few exciting adventures. (I'll share more as the time comes). I tell you what, working alone ALLTHETIME is overrated. It's good - for the soul, for the mind, for the thinking muscles - to find a few kindreds and hold your heads together over a vision you all share until you've worked out how to make it happen. It's one part logistical creativity, one part diving in, and one part allowing the woodwork people to come out and contribute in generous ways.
Just such a collaboration has been a companion to me recently. I want to entangle myself with the most playful of explorers, the most reliable of humans, and the most generous spirits. There are few who embody those qualities more than my dear friends, Katie Kendrick (who wrote a beautiful post just this morning about this offering), Misty Mawn, Judy Wise. We have dream-weaved up a creative gathering this coming August in the jagged and breathtaking Wasatch Mountains just outside of Salt Lake City. Over a year ago we sat around a table and schemed a big dream. A big dream that each of our hearts bundled up together and set it sailing down the river of possibility. Then we rolled up our sleeves and here we are...all so excited to come together to teach the Roots & Wings Retreat!
I am so thrilled that we are able to create such a full offering while still maintaining an intimate time where connections can me made and nurtured. And to top it all off, the location is stunning, our hostess is an angel, and the menu-in-the making is going to be the perfect combination of creativity-supporting brain food that tastes like comfort food. As we plot and plan and manage the details, our driving desire to generously share in a creative exploration with you is the fuel that burns bright in our hearts.
We'd love to have you join us! Space is limited and you can read all about it on our Roots & Wings Retreat page. We'll have our hugging arms ready. It will be a sweet, sweet time.
