Meditation | Yoga | Wellness

Join us for a holistic weekend of Zen yoga, Zen meditation, energy work, and mindful hiking as a way of moving through the end of winter and into spring on the right foot.

As the winter comes to a close the ice begins to melt: not just outside in nature but inside us too. Spring is traditionally seen as a time of new beginnings and offers us an wonderful chance to re-align with who we really are and to develop greater health and success in our relationships, jobs, and spiritual practice. There are many specific practices within the Zen Buddhist tradition that help this melting process along. 

This workshop will deeply nourish and rejuvenate your body, mind, and spirit.

SuitabilityOpen to anyone.

Past Impressions

“Fun, restoring, a wonderful time. I laughed and stretched and found some silence and peace. A great group of people and a great start to my spring.”

“Gorgeous! Lucky to be intimately in nature. I appreciated the time to hike.”

“I had a great experience – it was great to get a jumpstart to my meditation practice. I liked journaling after, it helped see what’s going on in the old brain and sort of set it free through writing.”

“…a very nice community and very relaxed while developing great skills.”

“I’m not ready to have this end!”
