When I went to France last Summer in August, one of the items on our itinerary was hiking in the St. Maximim forest which is near the Sainte-Baume mountains (a basilica dedicated to Mary Magdalene is there). Our task was to commune with nature on our own and share our experience with the group afterwards.
Animals are sacred gifts to humanity, helping us heal to become our highest version of ourselves.
Our animal companions have shown us to trust, to have compassion but the most vital thing we’re learning today from them is to surrender. Surrendering is merely accepting what is. It is connecting with our inner self.
