Open Your Heart
What to expect: This is an experience designed to take you away from the rush of the everyday. This is a day for you. An escape so to speak. Indigo is a space surrounded by trees, water, and nature. We consider it a sacred space, as it is so far removed from the common elements of our everyday. Things like traffic, road noise, email, phone notifications are no more. This is a place to connect with God, your TrueSelf, your SoulSelf. in a total sense.
There are no HAVE to DO's here. For a moment, there is no responsibility other then re-charging your batteries so that you can bring that energy back to your family, your job, your everyday.
Why re-charge? It almost seems selfish right? Truly the most unselfish thing you can do, is to take some time for you. It is something that can get lost in the shuffle of our constant GO. Errand to Errand. To Do to To Do. Eventually without re-energizing we just don't have more to give. Our emotional wells run dry and before you know it, we are too tired to do anything.
Think of it this way. You are driving your family or those that you love up a hill in a car. As you go up the hill, your energy runs low, no gas left. What happens is everyone in the car suffers. Everyone is now stuck at the bottom of the hill.
Give yourself this day ! Your family and all those around you will greatly benefit from your renewed self. You will too! Learn about Lisa aka Momma Bear, Founder of Indigo and Teacher for Open Your Heart
