These Goddesses helped make the Raw in Reno Challenge a Success! And they came and played with Georgette and Shone from bohocrush, doing this photo shoot, so that we could have a Beautiful and Natural ending to 1 incredible month. I love each and everyone of these ladies and I wouldn't have changed a thing! Simply put I had the time of my life in Reno and Everyone there involved with the Challenge help make it an unforgeable experience!
Being in Reno gave me time to slow down and reflect upon myself and what I wanted to create for my own personal life and happiness. Doing yoga regularly made a huge difference and one that was undeniable in its effect of major core strengthening and grounding. Overall I just felt stronger, more in shape and happier. I had moments of unbalanced emotions, but I think I managed to work through a lot of lingering issues in my life so that I could move forward, feeling lighter and freer.
About the Reno Community:
Personally, I have never known or seen in action a group of people within a community who are so willing to create thriving and electric connections. They are so committed to supporting and nurturing, encouraging and inspiring one another along...I was blown away constantly at how they opened their world up to me and how wonderful they were with me and to each other.....I Loved It!
Being in Reno Changed me, and I am moving through my days with gratitude and smiling eyes.... I came back to Missouri with my batteries recharged, but taking almost 4 weeks for me to decompress from the experience, and you should never rush the process.
I gave myself lots of observation.... loving observation....Healing, growing, and trusting takes time and tools. I am allowing my life to unfold, no struggling necessary...I learned so much from each person I met, the outcome of such an experience will effect me for quite some time I imagine!
I hope that everyone who came to the raw dinners or was doing the raw challenge for the month of March took the time to really connect with themselves. It was a perfect opportunity to grow and strengthen the love within. I am glad to have been a part of it and I look forward to hearing from others what the Raw in Reno Challenge meant to them...
