If you have walked with me on any of my retreats or workshops, then you know that an Altar is the focal point for our time together. There is a beginning, an end, but most importantly a story.
I was introduced to altars in my 20's and over my life they have grown into many things. I encourage my children who each have an altar that they change out from month to month as well. Our altar holds items that have deep meaning for us, there are items that make us smile or laugh. At various times of the year photos appear of loved ones we want to remember or even destinations that we would love to travel one day. They can be spiritual in nature, while spiritual can be defined in many different ways.
When you are on a retreat, our altar grows within our time together as we discuss different topics, learn about ourselves, and open to what the journey has to offer. But primarily, WE are our greatest and dearest altar. Something always important to remember. Our altar mirrors ourselves.
Take time this weekend to create and altar.
