  • refresh your meditation practice
  • strengthen practices for living a life that is nourishing and supportive of your mental health

This is an experiential retreat that will involve reflective practices, working in small and large groups, and periods of silent contemplation. As with any psychological and educational process, inner experiences may become stirred up that is uncomfortable. We encourage you to consider your readiness for a retreat. If you are experiencing moderate to severe depression or anxiety, trauma, or untreated psychological distress, please note that a retreat environment may not be useful at this time. If you are unsure of your readiness, please contact us by email and we would be happy to explore the possibilities with you.
