Two years of Gatherings that came and went, before we even had a chance. Three years of isolation, canceled events, frustration, economic struggles, and global panic. 2021 was going to be the year we ended Covid, the year we got to gather and see all of the people that we missed. It came, and it went only slightly better than the previous year.
Having to cancel the Wild Woman Weekend 2 years in a row created a huge depression within me. Between the isolation, the ticket refund struggles, watching loved ones health struggles, and having had covid go through our house twice, I found myself see sawing between apathy and anger. At one point I even considered walking away from this work altogether,
Trying to deal with my depression led me back down the path of Self Care. I had stopped eating right and moving my body. I went back to the chiropractor, I started making better food choices for my body, and I started going to a restorative yoga class on Sundays. I almost didn't go, but I had paid in advance. I'm glad that I went because afterwards I was asked about the Wild Woman Weekend, and if I would consider having it this year. At the time I was honestly feeling a big "no" inside my throat but I said I would think about it. Eventually I had several other unrelated people ask me this same question. "Are you going to have the Wild Woman Weekend this year?" I decided that maybe I should try again.
