Enlightened Warrior Traning Camp

Links to this post
I swear we spend more time at the airport than any other place in Vancouver. After dropping Deeds off in the AM it wasn't long before we were back picking up Eben. It was then that we became "4Krew". Me, Katie, Jessica and Eben, in search for 'Cupcakes' the cupcake shop toured the streets of downtown Vancouver before trekking up to Squamish. It was a mission and a damn tasty one at that!

We arrived at camp much later than we had anticipated, but it was amazing all the same. Katie, Jess and I staked claim on the giant tent I had used the week before. Even though there were only 3 of us in there for the week, it looked like there might have been 6 the way it looked! Hey, we're Warriors, we do whatever it takes to get shit done...that meant having a messy tent!

We had an awesome crew to work with at Warrior camp. Lots of great, energetic people that all brought different elements of wonderful to the table! Like Gerry and his 'ad lib' drumming, Lori and her random a$$ injuries, Jenny and her Kundalini Harley Davidson ... As I'm writing I'm struggling to put into words what it was like to be on the krew for this event...there just aren't words, only intense feelings of gratitude, love and joy. Amazing, awesome, crazy, FUN, empowering, frickin fabulous, irreplacable.....to name a FEW.

Volunteering for Warrior was an awesome experience and I can't wait to do it again! Just like Kelly said it's hard to put into words...It's just one of those things that leaves you feeling all happy and gooshy inside. And it's so frickin cool to be a part of something that's so much bigger than you, and to know that you served well and changed peoples lives!

As a volunteer, we're processing and learning just as much as the participants. I was pushed slightly that week, but was ready and excited to take on whatever I had to do. I was put into a leadership role and although I was a little scared, I rocked it! It was so cool to know that I could lead and that people actually listened to me! haha. I tapped into a part of me that I never really used before and I had sooooooo much fun doing it!! Great to be back in the Warrior energy! A-HO!! (You were a rockstar at camp! You walked into camp one person and walked out a hot, powerful, confident woman...YEEEEOOWWW! haha I luv ya!)
