Dharma Mamas Retreat 2016
Eleven mindful mothers gathered for a 3-day weekend in Ojai, California to nourish our souls, strengthen our practice, deepen our self-care, and connect with a like-minded community of moms. Amazing resourcing was had with these Dharma Mamas! So much connection. So much deep sharing. So much laughter.
We practiced eating meditation, walking meditation, sitting meditation and enjoyed dharma talks by Susanna and Yamin, a healing art circle with Kerry B., delicious meals by Meredith Klein at Pranaful.
We were nourished deeply by our conscious caterer, Meredith Klein.
We sang Deer Park songs and enjoyed walking meditation.
We were quiet. We listened to what nature had to say.
We took care of ourselves and each other.
We took care of today in order to create a more beautiful tomorrow.
We enjoyed the ordinary and the simple.
We expressed ourselves without words.
We expressed ourselves simply and beautifully.
We cooked up elixirs of magical healing.
Tears were shed. Patterns released. Unnecessary things were burned.
And howls sounded across the Valley under a waxing moon…
We strengthened our purpose. We recommitted to our practice. We came back to ourselves and remembered who we are. Women who have been blessed with the responsibility and honor of mothering members of the next generation.
