Beautiful Ballycastle

Blog post no.2 coming to you from BEAUTIFUL Ballycastle on what must be the BEST day of the year so far in NI!  It is truly glorious here – barely a cloud in the blue sky and the sea a deep blue too and gorgeous shades of green all around.  It’s just magical.  My heart soared at the very idea that we are ACTUALLY gonna have a Plum Village retreat here in two weeks time – it really is a fabulous place LOVE it.  Please pray for this nice weather to return on 27 – 29 March 🙂

The Davey Village, Corrymeela where most people attending the retreat will be staying is just great – lovely, modern and the room where we will hold the main meditation talks etc is perfect.  Matt the guy who organises things is super helpful – he is going to provide a little-raised platform/stage for Sister Insight and flowers.  He asked me what kind and I said doesn’t matter but then I remembers Sister likes orchids so he’s gonna get some of them – no extra charge 🙂 I said he can keep the for his office after and he said win-win.  They’re all  lovely up in this part of the world :).
Everything seems easy and straight forward which is what we want keep everything simple and zen like 🙂
The cooks said are you SURE you want vegan as people are likely to ask for meat i said NO CHANCE that it is definitely a vegan retreat!  Apparently people say they’re vegan and then ask for a wee bit of chicken! Anyone who knows me, know this won’t happen with anything I’m organising 🙂
I went for a walk to make sure it will be ok for walking meditation with the Sisters and honestly i can report that its GLORIOUS!  The wild noise of the crashing ocean waves and the scenery is amazing 🙂
My only worry is that it will rain… but surely not!
There are still a few places left if you haven’t booked yet…  if you have booked please be excited its gonna be AWESOME 🙂 x x x

Coffee shop post

What a beautiful evening for my first ever Blog post.  Well it was actually Jonny who wrote the first sentence.  Jonny is my IT guy.  He’s replaces the wonderful Karen who actually invented this website.  Jonny’s now taking it to the next level or taking me to it as i’ll now be updating the site manually using Word Press.  Karen has been amazing now that I’ll be doing it myself I realise just.how.much.work there is in keeping a website up to date.

We’re currently sitting in Boden Park Cafe on the Ormeau Road, there’s nice tinkly music in the background and the food smells are making me hungry…
