A Contemplative Pause
Thank you Dr. Puff, this is a great reminder to take time-outs from our busy lives, plus I’ve been looking for retreat locations.
I really enjoy these podcasts. I have gone on a couple of retreats and have added flowers to my home as Dr Puff suggests. These activities have helped me to be more peaceful and serene.
