When we arrived at Hoop Camp we were given a stone to write our intentions on. During the opening ceremony we shared our intention for this weekend and then placed our rock in this hoop mandala. My intention for the weekend was “Friendship.” I wanted to spend the weekend getting to know fellow hoopers. At previous hoop retreats I felt nervous about meeting others and feel like it sheltered me from making more friends. This time I had a blast, met tons of great people and feel like I really had the chance to connect!
