Ibiza life coaching expert Larah Davis of Ibiza Retreats asks: When was the last-time you retreated from the heat? Not on an all-action holiday, itineraries plumped to the max, but to a magical place that nurtures you physically with space to stretch your legs and breath fresh air, with a pace and space that is different from your day to day life?
As I am watching the sun set this evening, a luminous ball of magenta-orange, bouncing off the glistening grass, I am feeling so deeply grateful, for the opportunity to retreat in England, tucked into the side of a hill, where my family and I are taking some deep breaths, and plenty of time to reconnect with one another, during our mid-summer retreat-from-the-Ibiza-heat.
What? Retreating from Ibiza? Is she crazy? Isn’t that where Larah offers and runs retreats?
Well, yes. Exactly. Apart from the crazy part! In fact being here, relishing the ‘being’ rather than the ‘doing’ is filling me with space inside for new inspirations to arise, for offering more guidance and glow for our next clients, coming for rejuvenating yoga, life coaching and wellbeing infusions….
As I am filling my cup with elderberry cordial topped off with a cheeky splash of bubbling mineral water, picking blackberries of bushes and savor ring my father’s green beans (and of course appreciating their nutritional value! ) this return-to-my-roots gives me time to reflect and appreciate my many life blessings, to see the bigger picture, refocus on priorities that are more right for me now, than even six months before.
You see, even when not in wonderful Ibiza, the island that I am so happy to call home, I am sure most of you can relate to the pressures that create heat, from which an escape is necessary in order to reevaluate your position, priorities, path and to appreciate your loved ones. Also to find a little more love for your self, by taking a good look at just how far you have come.
So as we draw towards the final month of another fabulous summer, why don’t you plan an early autumnal review? Time for you to retreat from the heat and enjoy the cool refreshment of new visions and perspectives…
