I went on a Rest and Rejuvenation retreat at the Omega Institute in the country near Rhinebeck, New York.
It was beautiful, peaceful and definitely rejuvenating!
My campsite was at the top of a big hill and the entire grounds are hilly so I can't say it was restful but the exercise was good for me.
The food was buffet style, abundant and wonderful - gluten-free options at every meal.
I spent many hours at a table in their cafe or on it's patio drawing and painting. My favourite drawing was gifted to a woman there who gave me an Eden Energy Medicine session that I could immediately tell had changed my life. The results have stayed and it's so awesome! The photo is unfortunately not the best quality but I'll share anyway:
I found myself just being present and, as a result, only took photos on the final day - and not many! I have a few regrets about the lack of photos but zero regrets about being that present and relaxed. I didn't worry even once about my cats, gardens or house. In fact I hardly worried about anything at all (I'm usually a chronic worrier).
