Happy April Fool’s Day!
I never imagined when I was younger that this day would become a holiday favorite of mine, but it has, because my idea of what it means to be a fool has transformed.
The very young and the wise both seem foolish, because they shun convention in favor of following the whispers of their souls.
Those whispers may lead them into risky, or even dangerous places.
The innocent behave foolishly because they don’t know any better.
The wise behave foolishly because they understand that safety and control are illusions, and that the path of the fool is the path that awakens beauty.
The first time I visited Ireland, I realized I’d lost touch with my inner Fool.
Grief, heartache, and my desire for predictability and control had gradually eroded my senses and my heart.
I’d lost the ability to experience Beauty. I’d gone to sleep.
Thank Heaven, the elemental and raw nature of western Ireland shook me from my numb slumber.
I awoke again to the joy and pain and exquisite beauty in my life.
I started writing poetry again.
I laughed, and I cried. A lot.
I felt raw, and vulnerable and a little bit afraid—but exhilarated too.
I remembered that I was alive. I remembered how to breathe.
That experience was so potent and powerful for me that I’ve returned to Ireland three more times since then, inviting other spiritual adventurers with me, and we’re going again this summer.
Seven people, including two who’ve made the trip with me before, are meeting my family and me in western Ireland in July for a weeklong Irish Immersion experience.
We have room for two or three more people.
Would you like to join us?
If you are:
~in transition, or longing to make a change
~looking for perspective
~wanting to step outside of normalcy
~seeking something sacred inside yourself that you can carry home with you
Then maybe this experience is a good fit for you.
The deadline for registering is May 1, or whenever the last few spots are filled (the cottages I have reserved will fit 2 or 3 more people, depending on whether rooms are shared).
Details are all at my website—watch the video and then scroll down on the page for more info.
May you awaken to the Beauty in your life.
And may you always remember the joys of being foolish.
