Touching the Earth!: Wake Up Retreat
July 11 @ 5:00 pm - July 15 @ 3:00 pm
Touching the Earth – Our Mother, Our Home, Our Self
This retreat is an opportunity to develop the practice of mindful living, to bring joy, solidity and freedom into the world. We grow the strength and capacity to create loving relationships, to build a community of supportive friends, to care for the Earth and contribute to positive change in the world.
We will be sharing daily meditation, yoga, mindful meals, listening to teachings, hikes in the forest, and discussions, as well as have time to enjoy swimming, music-filled bonfires, starry nights, and canoeing – surrounded by 240 beautiful acres of MorningSun Community.
(SLIDESHOW coming soon!)
Most of us will be camping, with a few rustic rooms available. Healthy vegetarian meals will be served from our outdoor kitchen and usually eaten on picnic tables at the beach. Outhouses and hot-water showers are available. Gatherings will be held in our straw-bale meditation hall, event tent, and yurt. There is also the possibility of staying at a nearby eco-bed-and-breakfast for those who would prefer (follow this link for more information on this option).
