Hello and Happy Monday, I’m on my way home from Costa Rica. I fully immersed myself in retreat life. I ate delicious food every day, felt the sun on my face, floated in the pool and visited the beach, met 16 others who I resonated with and connected with, and I barely touched my phone. I decided to rely on WiFi only and it was the perfect decision. As we gathered around the fire pit on our last night, one of my new friends mentioned how refreshing it was that none of us were on any electronics.
This is our last week focusing on samadhi, bliss, the last of the eight limbs of yoga. While I’m not sure if I have obtained perfect happiness, I’ve definitely experienced pure joy.
Each night this week we ventured onto the star deck, which had incredible views of the stars and the ocean. On Tuesday night after a particularly tough day, my new friend Ellen and I headed to the deck to stargaze. Like old friends, we laid there and talked and laughed and marveled at the Milky Way. Meeting like-minded beings is one thing, sharing experiences and stories takes it to another level. As others gathered on the star deck we all laughed together as we recalled with awe our evening.
This past week was pure joy for me, disconnecting from life and connecting to myself is exactly what I needed. I’m committing to myself to ease back into reality and stretch this bliss for as long as I can. If you have experienced a similar experience I'm happy to take any tips on easing back into life.
