Mindful Living Weekend
October 14, 2017 @ 6:00 am - October 15, 2017 @ 10:00 am
Saturday Work Day and Sunday Day of Mindfulness
During many months throughout the year we hold a Mindful Living Community Weekend. All day Saturday is a community work day on the land with picnics and a light meditation schedule. All day Sunday is a Day of Mindfulness Practice.
Attend either or both days. All are welcome!
Saturday Mindful Work Day from 10am to 4pm
Please join the fun of working together as a community to care for Morning Sun’s land and hall.
After our work we will enjoy sitting meditation and a community dinner together (please let us know if you will stay for dinner so we can plan the meal amounts).
Friends are welcome to stay over night on Saturday. Accommodations are very limited, so you may need to bring your own camping equipment or stay in the yurt or cabin. Please let us know if you plan to stay overnight so we can consider your sleeping requests and plan for meals.
To reserve accommodation, please contact us directly using our contact form.
$10-20 Suggested Donation for Each Day.
