Enjoy an early move in and a dynamic itinerary that includes three nourishing meals a day, time with yourself, and built-in-naps. Get to know your peers personally through group reflections, fun activities, and direct mentorship from your peer leaders and professional staff members, ensuring you’ll find connections before even stepping foot in a classroom.
A range of activities and spiritual practices to explore throughout the retreat are offered. From ancient practices, site visits, reflective journaling, along with exercises and readings, you'll discover a personal sense of spiritual resonance. Guided meditations, campfires, Tai Chi, walking the local labyrinth, and a river cruise/kayak are just the tip of the iceberg.
