I’ve just finished a Sabbath Retreat with Wayne Muller, author of Sabbath: Finding Rest, Renewal, and Delight in Our Busy Lives (among many other wonderful books). There where eight of us gathered at Ghost Ranch in the beautiful desert of NW New Mexico. I love Ghost Ranch with it’s multicolored canyons and expansive vistas. It is the land of Georgia O’Keeffe’s muse and thousands of years of human habitation. It is a thin place. When I go, I sit for hours, just breathing deep and feeling myself steep in the Holiness of the place.
Sitting at the feet of Wayne Muller was such a delight. His insights, wisdom, passion, and commitment to truth, presence, Sabbath, and exhaling into an awareness of what is real will inform my posts for a while as I unpack the richness of four full days. I look forward to sharing and reflecting upon the insights and thoughts that bubbled up while sitting in the desert.
