Dearest Borgo Yogis,

I have recently finished my morning mediation… alone with my practice for the first time since our retreat. My overwhelming feeling is one of gratitude. Gratitude to Katherine and Gayle and the vision and warmth they bring to their retreats. Gratitude for beautiful Borgo di Carpiano, Marilisa and Riccardo and their wonderful staff. Gratitude for Italy and the stunning weather, nature and food she provided for us. But most of all gratitude for each and every one of you. We shared so many special moments, so many life-long memories that have changed us all just a little bit. Light conversations shared over delicious food, life stories and adventures, struggles and triumphs, tears and belly laughs. Belly laughs on the terrace, at moments we weren’t really supposed to!, and most of all on the floor of the chapel.

I know we will all take a little piece of this retreat with us forever more and that is what I am most grateful for.
Until we meet again, dear Borgo Yogis, I will smile a little smile whenever I think of you all,

When you are in that place in you where you are truly you, and I am in that place in me where I am truly me, there is only one of us.

Namaste, Sylvia
