Day 10 of 28 at the Esalen Institute and we got up at 5:30 to do yoga and watch the sun rise. It sounds glamorous to be on a wellness retreat doesn’t it? And yet I have seen so many growing pains and and lots of tears shed. I’ve seen people lean into their pain and in one day watched it shift into their power. 💥 There is something painful and yet so beautiful in watching the human heart fold in all of its vulnerabilities and then rise again a little bit stronger. Know this, every day is a new day to begin again. Each morning is a new chance, for us to start over.💛 #thepowerofvulnerability #esalen #newbeginnings #stepintoyourpower
