42: My first retreat: An Audio Experience

Hello, my ah-mazing empty nest friend!
 
I not only survived my very first retreat, but I had an amazing time, too! It exceeded my expectations, and I can’t wait to do it again. What crazy idea do you have that you should try? This one was mine, and I’m so thankful I stepped out of my comfort zone and did it.
 
In honor of my crazy idea, this episode is also an experiment for me, so if this is your first time listening, know that this is not my usual format. It is more of a narrative and an audio journey. Whether you are a first-time listener or not, thanks for giving this episode a try. I open with the sounds of nature that I heard as I laid in my tent during my very first GPS Reset Weekend Retreat.
 
I’m thankful to my first retreat attendee, who took a chance on my idea, signed up, and uncovered how brave she is.
 
Join me on my very first retreat, by listening to this episode – or watching it – yes, I have an accompanying video!
