Wake Up Retreat
July 12 @ 5:00 pm - July 16 @ 2:00 pm
This is a retreat for young adults – ages 18-35 ish.
Details on our lead teachers and the theme of the retreat are in the works, so check back soon for those. But otherwise:
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.

Accommodations: We have several rooms available in “The Barn” (beds for 10-14 people depending on whether folks are alone, or couples, or in a ‘pod’), and also camping. Our campground is primitive, with flat sandy sites, outdoor showers and outhouses. You must provide your own tent and camping equipment. Campers will also have access to the first floor toilet and laundry in The Barn. You may also choose to commute in and out if you live locally (or book a hotel/airbnb).
