Eleven years ago, Joe and I bought this beautiful house in Grand Bend, Ontario. It was to be our home away from home, a sanctuary from our everyday, busy lives. Solace from the clutter and chaos of starting a family and a business. There are no vacations when you own a factory, only stolen moments and days that at any time can be disrupted by a crisis. This paradise was only two hours from our home and accessible, if only for a day. As a family, we got to spend many hours on the beach, looking for fairy houses and just enjoying the beautiful sunsets. Here, we could be free and happy.
Fast forward five or six years, the girls have friends and weekend commitments. We are not able to go to the Casa D'Amicci as much as we once had. Joe is still very busy with work, I have opened Love It Yoga. Our demands have changed and those stolen weekends are very few and far between.
What I'm able to do though is RETREAT. Retreat to my cottage and share this wonderful heaven with my students. I get to explore once again, the beach, the sunsets, the solace of the walking paths. I can help my students once again, reconnect with themselves, to find their inner quiet if only for a weekend. What a great gift we all get to share.
Of course, any great event has many planners, and event coordinators. No hassle free weekend would be possible with out the love and caring of Caroline and Michelle, and the culinary expertise of Claudia. The weekend was seamless, absolutely perfect because each person attending was open, honest and ready to do some soul sharing. We can't wait to do it again!
