Well, it’s that time of year when the changes are in such contrast — maybe anywhere in the world.

A liminal time.  Winter into Spring for us northern people.  Summer into Autumn for our southern hemisphere friends.

What’s it like for you?  Are the contrasts easier to perceive these days and nights?

Things have been budding earlier here in Cincinnati.

I have to confess that Spring might be my favorite of the seasons, all this newness of life and the very tangible reminder that I can discover Spring within myself too.  But honestly, in my heart of hearts, I have to admit that I enjoy every season…that new life abounds in every season, sometimes it just takes a more perceptive eye and ear and hand and heart.  And nose and mouth for that matter.

I have to confess that I love Zoom too — being in conversation with people all over the world, especially as we discover together the possibilities for new life through things like Bones for Life and yoga and meditation and journaling and Healing Touch.  Such goodness.

But there’s something within me knowing how important in-person gatherings are too, indoors and out, as safe as we want them to be.

We’re delighted by the interest in the in-person Spring Retreat…and there are just a few more spots left to welcome a few more new and renewal-craving friends.
