On Retreat

Dear friends,

I wanted to let you know that in a few days I will be leaving to go on retreat for two weeks and will be out of the blogosphere until I return.  I had such a wonderful venture to Deer Park Monastery last January that I am returning!  And this time my husband Mike is coming along as well :)

I will once again be bringing along my laptop solely for the purpose of writing a blog post everyday while on retreat, which I will then post live when I have internet access upon my return.

Thank you all for providing me the inspiration and motivation to keep on writing.  I greatly appreciate the support of your reading this blog and your comments.  I look forward to sharing my retreat journey with all of you when I get back!

Breathe Well,


Deer Park Monastery

    I’m so happy to hear it! and hope the writing won’t be distracting, but I’m sure looking forward to this wintertime encouragement. <3

    Last year when I brought my computer to Deer Park to continue writing I found it was a great compliment to my retreat. It is a joy for me to write while on retreat and share my journey :)
