“The greatness comes not when things always go good for you. But the greatness comes when you're tested when you take some knocks, some disappointments when sadness comes. Because only if you've been in the deepest valley can you ever know how magnificent it is to be on the highest mountain.” Richard Nixon
No matter where you are in the world, the past year has presented us all with different challenges and some sorts of pain. During these times, it’s easy to get carried away with what went wrong, the restrictions placed on us and the emotion that comes with it.
However, an important lesson we can learn from nature is how one of its most beautiful natural treasures are made, the pearl. The process begins when a small irritant finds its way into an oyster, and its natural defences get to work on it. Then over time, a pearl starts to form.
In this virtual retreat session, you will have the opportunity to reflect on the year that’s been and discover what precious gem you have been cultivating under stress, pain and challenge.
You will then own your greatest gain and eventually use this treasure to gift to others.
There always lies a hidden gem in each moment, and you’ve just got to learn where to look.
