I'm going to train to be a spiritual director!!
And it starts next weekend!
There are nine weekend retreat trainings in all in addition to everything we do in between. I'm excited!
Jonathan is a little less than excited :). When I first told him, he said several times that he didn't want me to do it.
But guess what! I had told him about the weekends, but then, realized that because of kooky flight schedules, I'm actually going to have to get there a couple of days early this first time. So before I told him that, I made him hold an amethyst crystal in one hand and a rose quartz crystal in the other for 10 minutes or more.
He was SO calm when I told him! I mean, he hugged me and made a few quiet murmurings about not wanting me to go so soon, but he kept holding the crystals and basically, was fine. And has been all day.
Now I just need to figure out what I'm going to pack!
I know it will be cold there (retreat center near Iowa), but should I take my boots? *Ponders*
