Okay, I had some last thoughts, haha......"The all-too-familiar fear before I left
on this journey, it seemed like this decision to sign up then show up, and to
spend money to travel way across country, on a yoga retreat, was beginning to
feel like one of my dis-organized decisions. What was I thinking? A bit of the
skepticism sank in, what could possibly be different with these couple of days of
multiple vinyasas? I knew I truly needed this, this yoga mindfulness, an end of year
clarity perhaps would come. Whatever I was in for was even more confusing as I
entered the grounds, not knowing the facility, the greeters, the whole environment.
I knew I had to step  outside of my comfort zone to accomplish things, but this was
uncomfortable.  But this sorrow, this heartache, this listlessness....Wow, though,
I found this opened  my heart, connected me, from all of that opening up in front of
strangers, being vulnerable and reflective has empowered me. You all gave
my heart a fullness it has lacked for so long, my soul a lightness of spirit.
Realized that every one of you felt exactly the same Wow.  All of us, full
of love for each other and given a renewed sense of self.


Trying TEFF, plucking oranges from the tree, chef's magical meals which opened
my eyes to more of the world around me. Loved the food and the wine, paired
with deep conversations. Walking the grounds with camera, sketchbook or
journal in hand. Peacefully enjoying the bird sounds, scents of the beautiful
flowers, hiking in desert air, waking up with a cat on my bed, purring on my
troubled soul. A wandering rabbit, pausing before he hopped along on by
my window, hummingbirds dancing in the trees, their wings fluttering
sounds right next to my ear as I lay in bed. Magical. And the
SUNSHINE, permeating  everything, rays reaching into our
\hearts, drying  our tears."


Thanks Ojai, Jen, and again, all of us-everyone.

Making Sh*t Happen: The Experience of a Lifetime.

A perfectly perfect day.  A perfectly perfect time of year.  A perfectly
perfect opportunity for relaxation.

It would seem that flying to LA and driving the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH for
all the cool kids) while watching the sun set into the water was a brilliant idea.  
Ojai, Ca. was the backdrop for an amazing retreat with Jennifer Pastiloff,
of the New Jersey Pastiloffs and of Karaoke Yoga/Manifestation Workshop
fame.  I had signed my beloved husband Joe (heretofore “My Lobster) and
myself up for Jen’s Inaugural Manifestation New Year’s Retreat.

I walked in feeling like I was hanging onto my last ounce of sanity and left
more than transformed, with enough life changing memories and
lessons that will stick with me forever.

"Thank you to all 40 something people
at my New Year's Retreat. I feel changed.
I'm home now reflecting on the retreat and
all I can say is thank you. It was revelatory
and beautiful. My face hurts from laughing,
my feet hurt from dancing, my voice is gone
from singing, my eyes are dry from crying,
but I'm happy. I'm happy. I'm happy. I love
you all so much. Happy New Year.

What a way to ring it in. It was my 1st New
Year's retreat but it will now be a tradition.
With gratitude,


Jen xoxoxo"

"Okay, I am not a writer or a poet but I am compelled to put in writing the changes already taking place in my life
not 48 hours after closing circle. Going into the retreat this past week, I was stuck, really, really stuck. Scared of
connecting with anyone because I already felt completely depleted. Isolation was the only thing that felt safe. I
found this retreat because I was looking for space to find my true authentic self again. Throughout the retreat
thoughts, images, and a feeling of who I was “before”, started to emerge. Jen’s words “begin again”. Jens words
“how will you serve?” Jens words “what do you need to let go of?” These stuck in my mind and I found myself
unable to sleep thinking about them. Then Jen said a life changing thing,  “You have to let go of things you don’t
want to make space for what you do.” It clicked; I felt the truth of it deep inside. I was full of things I needed to let
go of leaving no room for the things I wanted. I am kind of amazed her words stuck like they did considering at
the time I was trying to keep up with the whole Vinyasa’ing thing. But I heard her and I watched others let
go of their fear and then I felt myself begin to let go of my own ... I could then begin to hear what my heart
had been saying all along, “I want connection”, “I want my purpose to be revealed to me”, “I want to use
all of my gifts”.

I hit Fawntice’s Gong on the 31st and sent it out into the universe knowing opportunities for connection
were all ready on their way. Thank you Jen and each one of you for putting me in a place where I
could open my heart. It is just a small thing, but it’s the beginning. This is going to be
a great year."

Touchdown in New Mexico this morning
at 12:00 am. Even the ordeal of LAX
could not erase the love of the last few
days. Thank you, Jen and thank you
everyone for welcoming Rachel (and
myself) into your hearts and the support
of your collective wisdom, experience and
vulnerability. You have wrought more magic
than you can know. We go forward knowing
that you hold us in the shared experience
of having "done love." I am eternally
grateful for each and every one of you
and the beauty of the time we spent
together in Ojai. With so much love.

Why I wake early by Mary Oliver

Hello, sun in my face.
Hello, you who make the morning
and spread it over the fields
and into the faces of the tulips
and the nodding morning glories,
and into the windows of, even, the
miserable and crotchety–

best preacher that ever was,
dear star, that just happens
to be where you are in the universe
to keep us from ever-darkness,
to ease us with warm touching,
to hold us in the great hands of
light–good morning, good morning,
good morning.

Watch, now, how I start the day
in happiness, in kindness.

"May you always remember to begin again and
to start the day in happiness, in kindness."

Never Too Late.
By Caspar Poyck.

2014: a year of growth, art, beauty and manifesting your dreams.
It’s NEVER  too late!

The last year or two have been filled with challenges and changes for
many. It was as if a crazy wind blew through our collective lives.

With challenges also come opportunities and growth. Change can be
toward something better.
As long as we are alive we will encounter change and as long as that’s
happening we can choose how to use the cards life has dealt us.

"The only constant in life is change"

Be aware of the people you choose to spend time with; are they wind in your
sails or choppy waves to navigate? And do the objects you surround yourself
with and their placement in your life subconsciously suggest the ideas and
inspiration you need and want?
