Pillars of Presence

A few images from within Jardin de Mar...

And, in the surrounding area...

The group of friends retreating!

Along with our wonderful host, Amin, seated at the bottom right.

I loved this retreat!  

It was a successful experiment... 5 days together. Fantastic stillness, fantastic friends, fantastic food, fantastic weather, a night of raining stars, and a full moon!

It revealed itself early on as the 'Pillars of Presence Retreat'... not surprising, as we had visited the Virgin of Pilar (pillar) a few days before the retreat (on the advice of a friend). She must have had a great influence! On the last day of the retreat, October 12, one of our friends told us that it was the fiesta of Pilar that day, a holiday! (The fiesta is why the retreat could be longer this year.) What a synchronicity! I really had no idea. We visited her before, she was present during the retreat and the last day was dedicated to her throughout Spain. She had a great presence at the retreat... birthing pillars of Presence.

Thank you to all!

Si Dios quiere (God willing), see you next year!
