Join us for a special retreat for young adults – ages 18-35ish – co-sponsored by MorningSun and Wake Up NY
Amidst the challenges of life, we strive to find our direction, to make a difference, to create loving relationships, community, and happiness.
In this retreat, with mindfulness practice and meditation as a base, we will be looking into our experiences of these challenges, and with the guidance of experienced teachers and each other, finding ways to address them from a place of peace and clarity within.
We will be sharing daily meditation, 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.
Program begins on the evening of Thursday, July 17th and ends mid afternoon on Sunday, July 20th.
We will be camping and sharing healthy meals prepared in a rustic outdoor kitchen and usually eaten on the beach of our “Blueberry Pond”. Outhouses and solar hot water showers will be available. Gatherings will be held in our small straw-bale meditation hall.
The total cost of the retreat is made of two parts: the cost of your meals and a program fee. The first is exactly the cost MorningSun spends on providing meals. The program fee supports our staff, program supplies, and other organizational costs.
- Meals – $80
- Program fee – sliding scale $50-$100 (you decide based on your life circumstance:)
If you need a scholarship, please let us know.
