    If you could have a retreat with only 12 individuals (past/present/future), who would they be?

    I hope to see many hubs to read and not just answers provided here, but I am interested in the various responses that will come to this question. They can be ANY 12 people, including those who have died, those who are living, and those who are yet to be.

    The first one would have to be my grandmother who passed away a couple of years ago she was such a cool person.The second would have to be the beautiful Bettie Page so awesome.The rest of the guest list would be Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, Frank Sinatra, Bettie Davis, Grace Kelly, Elizabeth Taylor, Dixie Carter, Red Fox, Elvis and James Dean.Now that would be one awesome retreat so many different people with very different personalities.

      Thank you for sharing! This is a great set of individuals. It would be a very artistic and creative retreat. I imagine there would be much laughter and joy!

    My husband, two daughters, two sons-in-law, his parents, his brother and two grandchildren, (we're all close )and the aunt and uncle who raised me.  I want to live in the present so I think I will stick with people currently breathing and functional.

      I like your comment about living in the present. It is always interesting the varied perspectives we all have. Because I want to get the most out of the present, I would choose individuals from across the spans of time. smile

    1) My boyfriend, first and foremost.
    2) My best gal pal with ADHD
    3) This very inspiring, intellectually gifted guy I briefly met while in college who was in high school at the time (his mother was in an organization with me). He's  out of high school now.
    4) My calico cat, Sammi. I still miss her but feel her presence from time to time.
    5) My father-though with him, it'd probably depend on what the retreat was about.
    6) Jesus. I've always been curious to know what he actually said.
    7) Ganesha. I guess just because I'm constantly facing a lot of obstacles (most of them internal) right now.
    8) Quan Yin. She has a lot to teach about being compassionate.
    9) Parmahansa Yoganada. Since Yoga is my favorite way to exercise and the guy also practically founded Religous Science (or Relig Sci as I personally like to call it)
    10) Christofer Drew of NeverShoutNever. I really admire the way he pulled himself up by his own bootstraps and is an advocate for higher education despite having dropped out of school.
    11) Charles Fillmore, the co-founder of Unity.
    12) Myrtle Fillmore, Charles' first wife and also the co-founder of Unity.

    That sounds more like a stampede than a retreat. I'd go alone and stay as long as I could.

      Some would enjoy being around others while some would not. This is what makes us all so wonderful - we have different opinions! I would absolutely enjoy time on my own after the retreat I would enjoy! smile

    Probably choose my kindergarden friend, Anna. Grade school friend, Olivia. My middle school friend, Anna. My old next door neighbor, Shelby. Those are the only four friends that have made a difference. However, I would also choose my grandmother, Barbara; my sister, Brianna; my partner, David. That is kind of it. Seven people.
