It’s been a few days since my husband and I returned from a brief retreat at Esalen. It was, in a word, awesome. I don’t use that word frivolously here. Our weekend at Esalen was literally about awe — the science of it, the proximity of it in our daily lives, the way it surrounded us over the course of two days.
Five years ago, I left my place of steady employment and took a leap into the “wild unknown” of the consulting world. It was a big leap for me. And yet, there was something so invigorating about hanging out my shingle, my “open for business” sign, and seeing who might come calling.
I never quite know what to do with my feelings during this week-long span between Christmas and the New Year. I feel a sadness for the fading glow and beauty of the holidays as we head into the stark winter months.
