I just spent a week at a darkness retreat – all day and night for an entire week, I was alone in a room in complete darkness. It was a very intense experience – it felt like climbing Mount Everest with your mind. I knew returning to “normal” life after would be an adjustment, particularly since the work week ahead was going to be a very challenging one.
I decided to start the week with a small experiment to ease myself into work, and I discovered some surprising learnings as a result. In this episode, I share what I did and the importance of taking mindful breaks to do some inner listening. There’s a lot that can be learned from the inner echoes of our own minds.
