ANNOUNCING: BE(longing). ⠀
A YOGA + WRITING RETREAT⠀
Join me and my lovely soul sister Sarah-Alexandra Teodorescu (@lifeisjustastorywritten@oryogascotland) for a transformative weekend created to bring you into a closer relationship with embodied belonging (to self, to place, to the nature of your own desire). ⠀
Dunoon, Scotland | OCT 2020⠀
This retreat, focused on the three pillars of CENTER, COMMUNITY, and CREATIVITY is designed for those searching for home and a sense of belonging and for a deeper relationship and intentional movement toward their own desire. ⠀
NOTE: Yoga and writing experience is not required. Over the course of the three-day retreat—inspired by our shared love of Scotland, her wild lands, lyrical language, and mystical history—we will take a deep dive into the DNA of our longings, uncover their roots and move through a transformative process of intentional integration. ⠀
Day 1: DESIRE⠀
Day 2: NAMING⠀
Day 3: ACTION •

I really am not Shirley Valentine. I don't sit on the beach and talk to random stones--well, not very often.. But there is something about Garry Beach that keeps drawing me back.
Yes, it's great for photography. Yes it's got easy access. That isn't 'it', though. A walk on Garry Beach leaves you feeling energised and refreshed deep in your soul.
I thought it was just me, but over the last few years more and more people have said the same thing. I keep hearing the same words used about Garry Beach as I hear about the Callanish Standing Stones. 'It draws me back' 'I feel a tingling' 'This place is so spiritual', Wondering if there was something more to these comments, I checked the maps readily found online that show the various Ley or electromagnetic lines that are thought to carry an altered form of the earth's magnetic field.
Ley lines are one of the most enduring earth mysteries. A network of prehistoric pathways criss-crossing the country, which some people believe to have mystical significance and energising properties.
One of the major ley lines appears to connect the Callanish Stones with the Ring of Brodgar in Orkney, and it passes right through Garry Beach. Now, I am no 1960s Flower Power stoner, I am pragmatic Hebridean Granny - but what if there is even a grain of truth in it... or there again, maybe there isn't any basis for believing in Ley Lines. One fact you can believe - this is one of the most beautiful, unspoilt beaches on the Isle of Lewis, and it is only a 10 minute drive from Mill View Bed and Breakfast.
