In Pestera, we had an amazing opportunity to meet inspiring people who decided this is the year to look deeper into themselves, reconnect with their bodies, acknowledge their emotions and maybe make peace with some of them. Nature suggested silence could nurture our busy minds and the incredibly delicious vegan meals gave us the perfect opportunity to practice mindful eating.
The greatest magic of retreats must be in the generous sharing of the group and in the sense of togetherness that makes practice easier and allows for faith that we can go back home and continue to be more present in our own lives and in the lives of everyone around us. Eventually, this is what cultivating kindness is all about.
We feel blessed to have been part of this journey again, thank you for your trust and openness!
