It began as a thought, then, the dream was awoken.
Follow the horizon to the edge of the earth… to a place where water meets land and sunshine frees your skin of all heaviness. Feel the lightness of freedom that nature brings as the ocean calls your body to dance along the shores and sleep beneath the stars. We meet here, new sisters, new friends, a gratifying experience of life’s greatest gifts all in one place.
Last week a group of inspiring ladies gathered in San Onofre, California to enjoy the sunshine in a Free People wonderland. The day began mid-afternoon… the heat was heavy but the cool waters welcomed us. As some released their fears and paddle boarded out into the deep blue, others rode the waves that sent them gliding back to shore. The rest of us, we dressed up, we smiled, we twirled, we captured the moment – a perfect moment – with photos that will stay with us forever.
As the sun began to set we gathered for the most epic of beach-side feasts. Natures greens cured our hunger and nourished our bodies – we felt rejuvenated. The moon came out to play and stars paved the path to our campgrounds, where we shared stories around the campfire and let our creativity flow as we hand weaved god’s eye hangings. The laughter and joyous conversations sent us to sleep in a peaceful bliss.
Night faded, and a new day began.
We headed back to the shores where we met our yogi, who helped us to awaken our bodies and prepared us for the beautiful day ahead. We stretched our hearts, found center, toes deep in sand and minds clear to let in only positive rays. We shared our last moments together as we ate our breakfast on the beach and said our goodbyes – but this parting won’t last long. The world will surely allow our paths to cross again.
This adventure was truly gratifying, surrounded by golden spirits, great teachers, and nature’s beauty. We left longing for more moments like this…
