On my website I list the workshops I present when I facilitate “Awakening Renewal Retreats.” These retreats are designed to refresh, renew, and rejuvenate business people, educators, church members, non-profit leaders and employees, and any others attending a personal or professional development off-site retreat.
Personal rejuvenation, I believe, should be a huge priority in our lives. The more I read, the more I hear about how our mind, body, and spirit are all connected. I believe as the research increases in this area, we are going to see more and more evidence of how important it is that we take the time to nourish and strengthen our bodies, minds, and spirits.
I hope that we move from a culture that uses these types of retreat experiences as an occasional escape from our busy lives to, instead, incorporating rejuvenation into our regular lifestyle. My book, Awakening- 12 Tools To Unlock Ultimate Potential, gives readers tools that renew, re-energize, and re-awaken the body, mind, and spirit so that blocks to living a vibrant life can be eliminated.
My fantasy is that parents begin modeling removing their blocks to passionate living by using these tools in their everyday lives, so renewal of the body, mind, and spirit becomes a habitual lifestyle that their children can consistently witness. Children are best taught not by what is occasionally done, but what is regularly modeled and practiced.
Be well, and make vibrant living who you are, not just who you occasionally give yourself the luxury of being during a retreat.
