In order to understand the world, one has to turn away from it on occasion.

Do you have anything planned for the weekend?
M and I have a 5K to walk/run first thing in the morning. After that, it will probably be a weekend devoted to work around the ranch.
I have decided to indulge in an at-home retreat next week. I’ve signed up for an online meditation conference that runs all next week, and plan to devote a lot of time to learning and meditating. Since the conference talks and meditations don’t start until 3:00 PM Eastern Time, I can use part of each day to work on my meditation/yoga room. Chores, I think, are a good part of a retreat, and this particular chore won’t be very chore-like because it will be a work of love. Or at least a work of desire. I very much desire a calm and comfortable meditation/yoga room.
I will not be blogging after Sunday (I’ll do a Silent Sunday post), although if I have time this weekend I might set up a few scheduled posts to hold my place for the week. I’ll be back for the next Silent Sunday post on the 27th.
I’m working up a schedule that will include a morning yoga practice, walks outdoors, time to read, time to write in my journal, and the conference. I have to figure out which talks I want to listen to because I won’t be able to listen to them all. That’s too much sitting time, for one thing. It would also be more internet time than I’m allotted with by my satellite internet provider.
I am also working up a menu of nourishing, nurturing foods. I’m not doing a cleanse and juicing is definitely not on the agenda. Juicing is much too time consuming (particularly the clean-up part). I’ll do some of the prep work this weekend to make things as easy as possible. Kitchari will be part of the menu.
So I’ll see you again in a little over a week. Thank you for stopping by today, and for all of your visits and comments. Have a great weekend and a great week ahead! If you get a chance, take a little time for yourself to relax or just breathe.
Be good, be kind, be loving. Just Be. 🙂
