Counting down the days. I’ll be leaving for the #councilofqueens Women’s Yoga Retreat in just under 2 months now. I am particularly excited to Host this group of Women. Everyone has a story, and it’s so beautiful to see just how every one is to end up here, now, together. I cannot wait to immerse ourselves in this electric dome of vibes that will be our energy as we come together and open up and honor our deeper selves. Magic is about to happen. 🌙💖✨ #yoga#yogaretreat#womensretreat#yogalove#yogastrong#yin#beart#elemental#awaken#bepresent#ahimsa#unity#yama#practiceandalliscoming#sageofthesun
Have you ever been out hiking in a forest as it’s just beginning to grow dark, and felt a growing sense of panic as you try to make your way out of the woods before the sun sets? Perhaps you find yourself glancing over your shoulder, jumping at the sound of snapping twigs. The fear of dense wooded forests at night is called nyctohylophobia. As children growing up, we’re taught to fear the forest, with its dark trees, and shadows that lengthen and become more opaque with the sinking of the sun below the horizon. We fear the darkness, and what could be hiding just behind the next tree. In every fairy tale we’ve read, the woods become a terrible place. When the classic Disney film, Snow White was released, Snow White escapes the clutches of her evil stepmother, and runs terrified through the forest, where each tree turns into a monster with claw-like branches reaching out to grasp at her. And who could forget what happened to Hansel and Gretel when they strayed from the forest path? There are monsters, brigands, strange beasts, and untold terrors waiting to whisk us away in the woods. But perhaps not all of those stories are fairy tale, because many who have visited the Pocomoke Forest in Maryland, claim that there are very real monsters in these woods. ⠀ 💀💀💀The dense, swampy Pocomoke Forest, has tails of haunting sand macabre history going back 200 years. The Pocomoke River, which I delved into a bit with my last post, runs through the forest. According to author Mindie Burgoyne, who is also the owner and operator of Chesapeake Ghost Walks, the forest terrifies even her: “When we guide the Pocomoke ghost walk, we go into the forest for the last half. Many guests have mentioned being ‘touched’ or have gotten strange images in their photos. There is always some paranormal thing that happens on that Pocomoke tour. We’ve tagged it our ‘scariest walk.’ I had a ten-year-Old boy on the walk who kept asking his mother if she’d touched him. He
