What exists in the white space between your passions?
That was a question posed at my latest foray at Soul Camp, a spiritual sleepaway jaunt for adults in the rolling hills of northern California.
My passions are simple. They are Joy and Nature. (And one certainly invites the other to come and play.)
What is the "white space" between them?
Goat yoga is one, obvi. The whole point of the class is the lightheartedness these sweet and silly creatures provide, all while being serenaded by the swaying willow and the circling songbirds overhead.
Hiking is another. Heading into Boise's foothills to frolic in the clean air, take in the spectacular views, and nourish my body with rigorous climbs or the gentle touch of conifer branches.
I also love to write, and paint, and dream, and sing, and learn, and read, and create, and travel. And perhaps most delightfully, I love to do these things with others. My people. Or even people who aren't my people. I am drawn to connection, authenticity, simple kindness.
And herein lies the inspiration for the next spate of playshops, classes, retreats, and offerings for 2019. I can't wait.
