Wake Up Retreat at MorningSun
July 28, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - July 31, 2016 @ 10:00 am
An event every year that begins at 1:00 pm on day 28 of July, repeating until October 1, 2017
A Path of Joy, Solidity, and Freedom
A special retreat for young adults – ages 18-35ish
There are many challenges we face in our lives. In the midst of this, a solid practice of mindful living can bring us so much joy, solidity and freedom. 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.
In the retreat, 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.
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 solar-hot-water-showers will be available. Gatherings will be held in our straw-bale meditation hall. 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).
