There’s something so precious in these mini retreats I’ve come up with for myself. With summer getting more and more ready to fully show off, it makes it easy to integrate some outdoor time of simple beingness into everyday life. Instead of rushing home or going directly from one thing to the other, these extra loops in time and space are just priceless. It’s great freedom to take myself drifting around into the forest, up onto the cliff, or somewhere to one of the beautiful waterfronts for however long it feels necessary. There is nothing to be done, no expectations, no requirements, nothing to achieve. Instead, being with whatever is and whatever wants to be – within and around me.
