I love gatherings. I love the energy of being around people who share a passion or a need. I love knowing that there are other people like me. But I fervently dislike the enforced camaraderie of retreats, and the feeling that my discovery needs to be shared to be real. I only process things when I’m alone – which means I have no time to know what I have learned until the retreat is long over. And I end up feeling that others have gotten so much out of something and I have failed once again.
So I’m creating retreats that would make me happy, that will actually feed my need for exploration in a quiet little place of my own.
