I am on a retreat this weekend and yesterday it was pouring rain all day, with high winds. Part of the retreat was to go for a 30 minute walk on your own and to be aware of your breath and what you notice. Some chose to walk indoors, while others chose to brave the elements.
I decided to walk in the rain and loved the entire experience, even getting soaked. I was so in the moment and loved all the feelings, sights, and sounds. I even splashed in the puddles and walked across the flooded labyrinth.
I don’t know if I would have chosen to go out walking on my own in the rain and was thankful for the invitation and “permission” to create space in this way.
