Kings Canyon Yoga and Sound Retreat

Wow! What a year we have all lived through! Such tough lessons, but with many wonderful new life developments along the way. Prayers to all those who have suffered loss. Healing can take time, I hope everyone is supported in all necessary ways.

As our country reopens most of us will be ready to make plans for some type of adventure. Being cooped up for all these months has everyone ready to roam. I am planning to offer a Summer Yoga Retreat in Kings Canyon National Park at the Far Horizons Retreat Center in August. I will be co- presenting with a fantastic Sound Healer and Wellness Designer from Los Angeles, El Larson. Since Kings Canyon borders Sequoia National Park , it is really a two for one National Park Experience. We will have a meditative yoga practice to start the day, plenty of free time for exploration in the Parks, and finish the day with an evening Sound Bath program. Far Horizons is quite rustic, but the natural beauty is stupendous and great vegetarian meals are included with the accommodations. Please check the flyer below, contacting El or me for more in depth information.

Let’s put some Roar into 2021 ! Love to you All, Namaste

Family Visiting in 2020, Emerald Isle, NC

2020, the year of big changes for all!  A very welcome change to my life in San Diego is the wonderful reduction of freeway traffic, most likely the result of working and schooling from home.  And for airport traffic? On a recent trip to visit family members in NC, I was relieved to find that social distancing and the increased travel restrictions have made for easier cross country travel. We have to look for the silver lining wherever we can!

Here are photos of a trip to Emerald Isle Beach, which is on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Two of my brothers and I had a nice reunion there. Fishing and barbecue are big past times!  I was also able to  visit with some of my in-law relatives who live and work near the Camp Lejeune Marine base in Jacksonville, NC. It has been some years since visiting any of my family, therefore once again, I am honoring the silver lining of the Covid-19 months. (You can hover over the photos for a caption.)

These are very uncertain times for everyone. If we can take a few moments to remember the suffering of everyone and “walk” in our neighbors shoes for a few steps, could we come closer to realizing the unity of the Global Human Family in which we reside? Many blessings for peace and safety to you all.


Covid 19 and the Summer in Sequoia

We are hurtling towards September and all that brings: harvest season, back to school, and in some latitudes, leaves beginning to turn. 2020 thus far has been a year of great challenges and there appears to be no end in sight. It is by challenges that we grow, learn, and hopefully evolve. Let us all work together as humankind to rise to these challenges with courage and compassion.

Much to reflect on concerning the Covid 19 pandemic, there are still so many questions?????  Personally I think Mother Nature Earth is giving humanity an extreme wake up call. Blessings and Love to all who have been so seriously affected by the ensuing tragedies. Can we remember to “Let Love Rule” in the face of such adversity?

Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks sit in the middle of CA due east of Fresno in the Sierra Nevada Mtns. Recently I journeyed to these parks to help at a Retreat Center in its preparation for the coming months with a bit of yearly maintenance. The following photos give a glimpse of some of the spectacular offerings of these parks. Since my phone camera is not the best, I can honestly say these photos do not give justice to the views. Please make the time to see these Parks for yourself! You can click on the photos for a full view.

Do Stay Safe and Trust, in the Love in your Heart.  Namaste
