With the backdrop of the ocean as our inspiration, I am pleased to announce the fourth "Soul Retreat by the Sea," taking place June 6th to 10th at the beautiful White Point Beach Resort in Nova Scotia. This five day, four night retreat offers a unique opportunity to leave behind the cares and demands of daily life. As you enter the driveway of White Point, so begins your personal retreat which will invite you to unwind and begin a period of soulful rejuvenation and discovery. White Point Beach Resort was once again chosen as the retreat location because of the stunning beauty of the location, situated directly on a one-kilometre beach with a surf that sends one to sleep each night. Watching the sunrise over the ocean is something not to be missed (at least one morning!) and as we are having this retreat in June, we might just get our toes in the water and be able to take advantage of the many summer activities which were unavailable during previous off-season retreats. I always looked longingly at the boathouse and now on a free afternoon we can try our hand at canoeing or kayaking and there are also bicycles available with really lovely, tree lined paths to ride them on. On the first Soul Retreat, I was interested to know if White Point would be all that I was hoping for in a retreat location, and it was. I found that what I most wanted to offer to participants was here: beauty, a sense of the wildness of nature, a feeling of freedom from the everyday (which we often begin to think is who we are), with rare access to the beach just outside our front doors. This year we have a unique opportunity to ride the coattails of the great upheaval we all have been experiencing. The reflective atmosphere of the ocean during the late autumn, which was so conducive to previous retreats as we retreated inside to discover what was waiting for our attention, now has evolved into a call for June sunshine, for bright spring flowers and for nature walks as the world begins to bloom again. Reflection has been a daily activity for most of us over these past couple of years, and what I hope to create in this retreat is an opportunity for moving out of reflection: letting go of outdated, restrictive identities and patterns, and discovering - amidst the company of other women doing the same thing - what fresh goals we want to create to carve out new directions and possibilities.
