Just returned from The Heatland Spa in Gilman, IL where I spoke on "Mindfulness" ...one of my favorite topics. I am grateful to have been part of The Heartland's Speaker Program for several years now. Each time I speak, I spend the weekend and am blessed to bring a guest in exchange for my talk. This weekend I brought my niece, Katie. We arrived there Friday afternoon, had an excellent healthy dinner, followed by a Qi Gong class.
Saturday began with a beautiful two-mile walk, a great breakfast, a little reading and a fabulous massage. After lunch, I listened to Kim Onnen talk about Motivation, swam a mile in their pool, participated in Aqua Motion and topped it off with a yoga class. My talk was Saturday night, "Living in the Moment...The Art of Mindfulness." We had a wonderful group and a lively discussion which continued for hours.
This morning I took my two-mile walk with the group at 7am and had my last meal of this relaxing weekend with my new friends.
I am very appreciative to have had this opportunity to rejuvenate:)
