Our Light Touch Adventure


The Touching the Stillness cruise last week was awesome! The weather was balmy, the seas (apart from one evening) were calm, the sunrises and sunsets breath-taking, the group magnificent, and the crew wonderful!

Each morning we started our day with a Daily Word Gathering; and every afternoon I led a meditation – even on days when we were at port for those still aboard the cruise liner. In one of those afternoon meditations I included a Silent Unity Prayer Service; and on the day we were in Curacao (which means “heart”) I led a heart meditation. Kyle Bogard, one of our retreat guests and a Touching the Stillness friend, led retreat guests in a Movement meditation one afternoon; and each morning we’d shake off the dust with a wake-up stretch she led during our Daily Word gathering.

We enjoyed a rousing Sunday worship service, with an inspiring Sunday lesson from Rev. Paul Tenaglia, Senior minister of Unity of New York – A Spiritual Center for Creative Living. We brought the light touch to each session through bubbles…You guys know I LOVE bubbles! We laughed, danced, sang, played, cried, prayed, dug a little deeper for healing and clarity, and let our light shine…Some in our group stepped out of their comfort zone and fulfilled goals and dreams, while others experienced dramatic life-changing healings.

Spiritus, the retreat music team for the week, who hail from Paul’s Center in New York, blessed us so much with their fabulous music all week long but especially so during their closing concert, which we opened to other passengers on board. One couple – not part of our retreat – came to me after in tears and said their experience of the concert was the highlight of their cruise experience.

This was a special, exhilirating event and I’m already making plans for the next one so get ready to get onboard for the next Touching the Stillness “Light Touch” Retreat at sea! All are welcome.
