SUFI MEDITATION RETREAT
Friday, September 4th to Sunday, September 6th – follow this link to view the flyer and/or register: http://trigoddess.org/sufiretreatflyer.pdf
See! I told you it was a lot! I need a nap. I recommend hammocks for afternoon snooze time. I also recommend making silly faces at children; driving, walking, skipping or riding bikes directly through puddles of all sizes; smoothies for breakfast (better than coke, but beware the raspberry seeds that get stuck in your teeth), sunscreen on the tips of your ears (opposite the lobe), RSVP-ing for ritual and contacting me for more information about anything on this HUGE list of events.
Until we meet again,
