Lake SuperiorLast Sunday at about this time, I was on my way back from an Amazing 4 day women’s retreat called “Embracing the Goddess Within.” It was a time of discovery, celebration and honoring the wisdom of women. There was ample time to relax, reflect, hike and explore. There were sessions each day in the morning and evening with the entire group. The retreat focused on embracing the feminine qualities in ourselves and each other. There were surprises, aha’s, new insights, lots of laughter, music and celebrating ourselves and each other.

Lake Superior was at our doorstep and outside our windows. I was struck once again by the grandeur and beauty of this magnificent body of water. Did you know that Lake Superior contains 10% of the earth’s fresh water? Did you know that by surface, Lake Superior is the world’s largest fresh water lake? Did you know that there is enough water in Lake Superior to cover North and South America to a depth of 1 foot? These are some of the fun facts I learned while visiting one of my favorite lakes.

If you want to learn more about this joyful retreat you can visit the following website: I came away from the retreat with some wonderful memories, new insights about myself and also a sense of  feeling re-energized and renewed.

    The first time I saw Lake Superior I couldn’t believe it was fresh water. I live by the ocean and falsely believed that you could always see the opposite shore of a lake. Then I visited Chicago in February and the lake was frozen. It truly is a spectacular body of water. Glad to find someone else also rather awed by it. 🙂

      There is a grandeur and expansiveness about Lake Superior that speaks to me. It reminds me of the ocean which is a favorite destination for me. You are so fortunate to live by the ocean. Which coast are you on?

      Thanks for your comments Mary. Your love of designing & facilitating women’s retreats was evident in the Goddess Retreat I attended. I am so grateful I said Yes to you & the Universe. The gifts are still manifesting:)
