Inspired by the weekend retreat I attended at Copper Beech Institute at the end of April, I wrote a poem to express how I felt while I was there. The Institute is a calming and re-invigorating place, which I am grateful to have learned about. I will definitely return.
With gratitude, Jo Palmieri
Be still, be silent, be kind
A still body creates a still mind
Chaos nurtures the brain to race
Silence cultivates a calm pace
Kindness teaches compassion
It obliterates stress and tension
To live a more pleasant existence
Practice these three little words with diligence
Still, silent, kind
Peace you will find
In your body and in your mind
