Made it to Spoleto Italy for the yoga portion of my trip. Our hotel is a 14th century Hermitage nestled into a mountain top. Our views are incredible. Historically, monks used to come here to remove themselves from society and meditate in secluded caves nestled among the property. The hotel is filled with relics and history.. There is a chapel attached to the hotel where even the most extreme heathens will find themselves humbled by the energy and grace that exists here. I too having pushed my Catholic upbringing aside am filled with this grace and humbled with gratitude and joy. I find myself spontaneously in tears with no explanation except that I feel as if my heart has been cracked open with a angels arms.
If you have a dream, follow it. Find your soul and spread the love. Grace
Only recently have I been drawn to Europe. This trip brings me to Rome and Spoleto for a little tourism and mostly yoga. I've read several historical fiction books about Cleopatra and the dramas that unfolded between the Roman empire and the rest of Western Civilization. Only now does the information and scope begin to settle in. It there was ever an Atlantis or Lemuria I would imagine it all to be sort of Rome like. Such grander and attention to detail while at the same time, totally barbaric. This city certainly inspires love, art and passion. The people are great. Friendly, charming and charismatic. Such a nice shift from our conservative american ways. I love this city!!
Italia here I come... Anybody interested in a Living Dream Retreat? I'm flying solo in Roma to Spoleto. Check out www.livingdreamretreats.com and meet me there. Otherwise, I'll be sure to toast in your favor from another time and place.
The power of intention is quite simply, underrated. Stepping aside daily life and stopping time. As your breath deepens, you relax and tune in to the great natural peace. From there sending your message of dreams and hope to the universal angels of love and dutiful completion for the highest of all good. Freed now of the burden to cary such lofty goals you may now walk light until ahhhhh behold, I am living my dream.
