When to Retreat
by, Jen Visitacion
My husband Joshua and I took a couple of days away together to get some rest and to soak in some hot water.
As we planned our weekend, we put some intention into how we would spend our time both individually and together. Our bodies were feeling the end of the farming season, especially with an influx of downed trees to manage, so we knew that taking care of our bodies was the highest priority. We also knew we needed some time to connect on priorities moving forward this fall.
As we began to release the tension from the season and to reconnect to nature, ourselves, and each other...our life together came into to focus and a revived vision emerged.
This is not the first time this has happened. In fact, in any major transition we have created space to "get away" and put intention to our self care and connection. This is beyond a vacation- its more about purposeful retreat.
