The Gift of Time and Space

This weekend I was blessed with the opportunity to attend my third Mosaic of Faith weekend retreat in the beautiful town of Duxbury. Each retreat has been so special for me and I have taken away something different with each one.

This year’s retreat was unique in that the four women attending, each presented one of the of the four sessions over the weekend.  Usually my dear friend Claire, the founder of Mosaic of Faith, is our fearless leader and host for the entire weekend.  This year we all took turns preparing meals, we all helped to set up the space, all led sessions and all got to enjoy all of the moments of the beautiful weekend.  It was so nice to see Claire so relaxed rather than running around making sure that every detail was perfect and that all were enjoying themselves.

You cannot help but relax and reflect when you are on these retreats.  The indoor space is cozy and the outdoor space is ABSOLUTE magic.  Between the beach along the bay, the sprawling lawn, the natural labyrinth, the wooded path down to the beach or the bridge that crosses the marsh….it is filled with wildlife and wonder.

This years sessions were as unique as the beautiful presenters presenting them. We had such a great experience learning and growing together.  I feel so grateful to Claire for bringing us all together and to the other two women for sharing so much of themselves this weekend.  I am also VERY grateful to my in-laws for taking such great care of my children and to Scott for always making time for this weekend to happen.

This weekend was a gift, a gift of time and space to reflect, learn and grow.  I am so grateful to all that made it happen.  Thank you!

  1. What an amazing weekend! And the session you presented was spectacular – with so much detail, wisdom and love put into it. We were so lucky to be the recipients of it and learn so much from you. And these photos are incredible!!! Makes me think I won’t be able to wait a whole year to get back there. 🙂
