Most of the retreats I am away on are “working retreats” so every now and then it’s nice to just take a little time away to renew, and to get ideas for the upcoming presentations. Since they are all nature based, what better than a small cabin/ hermitage where you can take advantage of the quiet? I did just that last week, spending a couple of days at MY “go to” place for retreat…Still Point.
The photo above is the cabin I stayed in (there are 4…and one is a double cabin.) The weather was perfect…a little rain, a little wind (well, a lot of wind one day) and a little sunshine. There is a Nature Trail, a pond and woods around the cabin A perfect place when you crave quiet. Normally, I will fix my own meals and bring books to read. There are also programs that you can attend if that is what you like to do. Not every day, but a few offerings throughout each month.
Mostly, though, I love o absorb the beauty around me…to listen to the birds and crickets at this time of year, to watch the squirrels and chipmunks running around the cabin…it’s a great place to renew and come back refreshed.
