Ever have the feeling like you just want to get away? Yeah, me too. So many wonderful things are happening right now, but even so, things can get overwhelming. Normally I’m the type of person who runs myself into the ground, totally crashes and burns, then spends a few weeks putting the pieces back together. But in my old age, I’m starting to take better care of myself and recognize the warning signs of an impending meltdown. Living in Colorado is pretty awesome for getting away, breathing the fresh air and YOGA! Yoga and meditation are two of my favorite things, and I find it so incredible how as Americans we are having to learn how to breathe and stop and relax. I found myself needing a reminder in all of those things, so enter Shoshoni. This is a yoga ashram in Rollinsville, Colorado and it’s run by yogis living there. I had a blissful weekend of thinking, meditating, stretching, relaxing, praying, eating vegetarian, writing and meeting wonderful new people. The first night I also spent some time cursing, as I was the only fool in a tent during the craziest thunderstorm you’ve ever seen. (thus, I fled to my car for cover) Check out photos of my zen weekend by clicking here.
