Are you happy? How do you know?

Janet Fouts

I’ve mentioned before that there was a time in my life I saw no way to find joy in my life. I was stuck in a loop of negativity and just couldn’t dig myself out of it. Over the years since then I look back on those days a lot, in part as a reminder of how far I’ve come.

Why retreats are important

Janet Fouts

I remember the first retreat I went on. It’s been some years now, but I remember how nervous I was. Thinking I’d stick out like a sore thumb, maybe judged as a newbie. Could I last 3 days? I really had no idea what was going to happen beyond what I’d read in the brochure, and that was pretty slim.
