Retreat Musings…

There is something blessed about taking time out to meditate,to explore my inner world and it’s connections with outer reality. The silence is deep, the group feeling is warm and welcoming and our teachers mindful of  the insights, joys and sorrows that may come up.

Time passes… noticing happens…
