Retreat and Renew on a Sojourn to Peru

 We all need a time out from the chaos of our times. Timeout is not just for children.  We learned in Kindergarten to take a nap and that was sufficient. As adults living at this time, we need substantially more. We need a break, we need to renew.

If you are here to make a difference in other people’s lives, including your kids and your family, you must take care of yourself and put your needs first. Just like the oxygen mask on the airplane. You put the oxygen mask on yourself first to be able to breathe and be capable of helping others around you.

It was just a few years ago that I allowed myself to journey to a faraway place. As the always working, oh so busy, working so hard to please – mother, wife, daughter, friend, the decision did not come easy. I had a young son at home. My husband would be responsible for, not only his work responsibilities, but the carpool, feeding the dog, and care of our son all by himself. How could I possibly burden him with all of that? There was no way I was going to allow myself such indulgence. Yet, something in me knew I needed to go. There was an ache in my soul that was saying STOP! STOP! You need to go!

My first experience on a sacred journey changed my life forever. When I returned from my first trip, “I Knew that I Knew and I could not pretend I didn’t any longer.”  There was a deep knowing in my soul that I had a purpose and that I was to live it out. To fully express myself and become all I can be in this time given on earth.

If there is even a slight urge in you, I encourage you to explore what is possible related to this sacred journey to Peru.

I am here to answer any questions.  And if you need me to help you to STOP and timeout, I will explore that with you too!
