What I learned from Squam

Too many stories, too much processing still to do, but for now here's a list of some of the things I learned at Squam:

How to be brave
How to hold the space
How to live in community
How to catch a story
How to be seen
How to care for my soul
How to breathe deeply and let sweet rest and tender play sink into my bones
How to change my relationship to stress
How to say no
How to start to clean up the "bad neighborhoods" in my mind
How to listen to my scared inner child
How to surrender to the beauty of it all
How to delight in food that feels nourishing
How to open and relax
How to befriend
How to support and be supported
How to be exposed
How to listen
How to slow down
How to feel my life transforming
