As you stand, sit or walk, try to become more aware of what is around you. See the people walking past you; hear the wind and the rumble of traffic; sense the air moving over your skin and the sun warming your face. After a few moments, your mind may try to wander where it will. Gently nudge your attention back to your surroundings. Look at things as if you are seeing them for the first time. Welcome to the Random Encounters Retreat Center. We invite you – for a brief moment – to walk in someone else’s shoes.
