Shift Happens Part 1: ShiftCon 2019

12 Oct

I know I need to check in here because I have not done so in way too long AND I just returned from one of THE BEST experiences I personally have had at a conference in recent memory at ShiftCon which was hosted in Atlanta this year. I am reeling from the whirlwind of information, events, connections, and an overall feeling of inspiration, empowerment, and love for our Earth. But at the same time, I am also struggling to recover from the travel, the mishaps that, of course repeatedly occurred, and also from an unwelcome allergen exposure that knocked me back a bit soon after we arrived.

My hope is to share ShiftCon 2019 tidbits in little chunks. I will throw you what I’ve got for the duration of my energy levels. And then I will break, rest and come back to share more when I’ve refueled.

My first memories of the conference are of some of the people who I was lucky enough to meet and share this special experience with. Two of those humans who shared their magical energy were Jessie – Tiny Yellow Bungalow and Ashlee – Simplholistic (they crossed my path at just the right time, and I am very grateful). You should check them both out because they are not just super kind humans – they also have some great resources online. Give them a looky look.

For now, I am going to process the last week of travel and awesomeness while I attempt to recover from the impact it had on my very sensitive body. I am so grateful to have been able to attend such an inspiring event surrounded by so many stellar humans. I am also going to sit with that gratitude for the time being as well. I leave with you a photo of the outside view of the Japanese Garden at the Grand Hyatt in Atlanta, which was sneakily hidden between two outside terrace patio areas. I wish I had snapped some photos of the actual garden. But I was too busy enjoying its beauty & the calm when we walked through.
