A Life in Balance

A year ago, my girlfriends and I traveled to Miraval, a retreat nestled in the Santa Catalina mountains, to celebrate milestone birthdays for two among us. Miraval is a special place and my experience there was extraordinary. I swam every day, I learned to meditate, I painted for the first time, and I attended a class with Wyatt Webb. I was intimidated at first because he’s got a tough love vibe about him, but having learned to meditate the day before, I got past it. During class, Wyatt said something that resonated with me then and still does. He said that if we know what we’re feeling, and we know what we’re thinking we’ll be grounded within ourselves. Take that as you will, but I took it to heart. A year later I still do and thought it should pass it along for anyone else who goes searching sometimes.
