a perfect holding space

The cabin was a perfect holding space for my three week solitary retreat. It was magical to be waking up to bird song, sitting on the veranda watching the sunrise, taking walks through the breathtaking mountain scenery, watching the trees blossom and getting glimpses of rabbits, foxes and birds a plenty. I was here in late Feb to early March and was surprised I only needed to use the (very effective) heater a couple of times. The cabin is well kitted out with meditation and yoga props as well as lots of bedding and a fully equipped kitchen. I loved the wild feel of showering in the field, using the outdoor toilet, feeling the wind dance around the cabin and collecting a weekly food drop from under a tree; this facilitated a deeper landing into presence for me. The cabin felt huge for one person, which allowed for dedicated spaces for meditation, movement practice, reading and so forth. Shifting the energy in this way was very helpful for me on tricky days. Sudaka couldn’t have been more accommodating and thoughtful. Although we didn’t see each other during the three weeks, I felt the family’s loving presence holding me, which was reassuring! Mostly I felt deep joy, gratitude and freedom. I hope to be back soon!
