Same Environment, Different Experience
Often we have different experiences when we travel or go places we have never been. New sites, sounds, tastes often awaken different parts of us. This is why most “retreats” involve traveling to a new – and sometimes exotic – place.
I have traveled to many retreats – from visiting the vortexes in Sedona, to an exotic island in Korea, even to the bustling city of Paris – and they were all wonderful! But this “retreat” was different – it was my first “stay at home” retreat and my experience was even more amazing!
We expect something different when we travel, but we rarely expect something different when we stay home. My location didn’t change but I sure did.
My experience of my familiar surroundings – my city and even my own neighborhood – changed. The mundane was transformed into the extraordinary. And I saw new possibilities that I had never even thought about before.
More about these extraordinary experiences in ordinary places in the next post (^_^)
All the Best – Cynthia
