Weekly Simplicity Tips

Welcome to this week’s issue of Weekly Simplicity Tips. After a blazing week, like most of the US, we finally got a couple of cool mornings and evenings. I had the beach much to myself on a walk Sunday morning. And walked by a lake through trails today. I felt completely peaceful after my walk. Then on the way home an aggressive driver was weaving in and out. I felt myself tighten up, then send love came to me. I felt a little silly sending out loving thoughts to the driver. But tried it anyway. Maybe he was late or having a hard time. I wished him love and peace. I don’t know if he felt it, but I felt more loving and more peaceful when I was done.

Warmly, Beth

Why Do You Need a Retreat?

Ask yourself: when was the last time I took time alone?

Have you been stuffing down feelings trying to keep it all together?

Do you want to escape your life for a little while? Does everyone seem to annoy you?

Do you feel hollowed out mentally, spiritually or physically?

Are you in the midst of transition and change? Or have a decision you need to make?

Perhaps you have felt you have lost yourself under stacks of to do lists and other people’s expectations?
