Reflecting on the Body and Soul Retreat in Alice Springs

Jenny Batten writes of her experience of the July Retreat with Susanna Pain located at the Campfire in the Heart.

A time for nurturing both body and soul,

In the heart of our land,

At the Campfire in the Heart.

A time of connecting mind, body and soul through playfulness, stillness

and creativity.

A time to be immersed in the sacred land.

A time to listen and allow it to speak.

A time to be reminded of who we are, where we have come from and

where we belong.

I spent time listening, waiting and wondering.

I went with an empty cup with no expectations.

Opening my heart and being inspired:

Emerging creativity, sitting with questions,

Dancing with images, playing with the stuff of life.

Exploring Body wisdom practices.

Being still.

Soul Singing,

Dancing in the Gap,

Walking the labyrinth,

Delving into artistic expression.

My response:

On your pilgrim journey:

Listen to the ancient earth,

It holds you, supports you.

Wait for waters flowing,

It’s a life blessing, grace giving.

Watch for signs along the way,

Hearts on fire, love’s desire.

Wonder what will be revealed,

Beauty surprises.

Listen, Wait, Watch and Wonder

Mystery reveals.

The next Desert Retreat for Body and Soul with Susanna Pain is scheduled for April 10 - 15, 2016.
