Then, as you may recall, I went back to school and had to write a godforsaken research paper, in MLA format, because I couldn't graduate unless I knew how to do that. Fine. Rest assured I will NEVER have to do that again.
ANYWAY, I decided I wanted to write about creating retreats, which led me to contact Jen. Well, THAT idea was kaboshed because it wasn't a biographical paper and I had to go with Plan B. (BTW, I didn't have a Plan B when it was kaboshed...)
Still, Jen and I ultimately connected via email and a very informative one-on-one coaching session I had with her.
While researching all things about Jennifer Louden and her retreats I read about this amazing retreat she and two other women facilitated in 2012. THEN I saw they were doing it again in 2013. THEN I saw they were doing it 20 minutes from my house! (It was a sign, of course...)
A Creative Joy Retreat?! I knew I had to be a part of this.
I signed up for the email for early registration and I was all in by February.
THIS IS THE WEEKEND IT ALL HAPPENS, PEOPLE!
So, for the first time in TGHR blog history, I am going off the grid. I am on a digital detox. I am NOT writing a blog or posting on FB or tweeting or anything at all remotely connected to "work."
I am off to create some joy. I will be doing yoga. I will be writing. I will be learning how to use my iPhone camera and Instagram. I will be eating purely vegetarian food and I will be one with the views from the Garrison Institute. I am thrilled to be a part of this as it has been announced this will be the last time Jen is facilitating this retreat. Karma.
I'll be back here Tuesday. Keep sharing the love that is TGHR - the Facebook page went over 500 likes this morning. Grateful and humbled and delighted!
Music, aptly titled, "Love Me."
