On November 2, I found myself at my first BK Author’s Retreat in the Los Altos hills where I spent the next three days both energized and nourished by a magical sense of community that has been held by the Retreat since the late 1990s.
The days were packed with breakout presentations and discussions and oh so much food…yet they were also relaxed, with plenty of conversation time, morning yoga, hikes into nature and walks around the labyrinth. What really struck me for the sessions that gathered the biggest crowds this year:
- The Beginner’s Guide to the Human Soul led by Tara-Nicholle Nelson
- The Five Essential Practices of Collective Wisdom led by Alan Briskin
Although it was my first time immersed with BK authors, I relished in the way that the Author’s Retreat brought together heart and soul and held space for the collective wisdom & warmth of the community to re-emerge.
