Last week I had yet another Silver Lined adventure orchestrated by the ever-amazing Indagare. Holy Moly. What an amazing company Indagare is! Their tag line is: “The next generation of travel wisdom.” Oh how that describes the company perfectly!
This annual (all women’s) trip is always a health, wellness and rejuvenation experience, which happens to be the most divine way to start a new year. This year, we went to Mii Amo Spa in Sedona, Arizona.
According to its website, “this Sedona spa honors guests on a journey of transformation and exploration, in a nurturing and authentic environment.” Before you say, “Oh yeah, right,” let me tell you that their description is an UNDERstatment?!? I had quite possibly the MOST transformative and powerful and magical four days of my life. Seriously.
There was a tree FULL of heart rocks!
This is actually the second time that I have been there. The first time was two years ago, when the HOTY, Sweetly Six and I traveled there together just after my diagnosis and right before my surgery. It was a powerful time for our family, to say the least. Two very significant things happened there on that trip:
- We told Sweetly Six (then 4 3/4) about my diagnosis (read about it here: http://www.thesilverpen.com/2010/11/07/brookside-bambinos-discussing-fbc/)
- I wrote my first-ever blog post there.
It felt strange to be back. But good. So very, very, very good. The first trip was all about getting my S**T together before treatment. To fuel. To energize. To strengthen. To center. I did all of that (and more).
This trip was all about transformation. Moving forward. Moving beyond. Releasing and integration. Big stuff. Major Silver Linings!
Over the next few days, I’ll share more. In the meantime, here are a few snapshots from the trip.
Well, helloooooo there!
This is the heart rock that I found. I said a meditative prayer and lovingly placed it on a rock formation overlooking the canyon.
