The following is a tentative schedule for the weekend.

Each day begins with practices designed to root into the body and clear energy for the day. There are many pockets of intentional free time woven throughout the schedule for integration, rest & reflection. Friday and Saturday will end with breathwork into an extended sound journey. This is sure to wisp you off into peaceful dream land. There will be an optional group hike on Saturday to celebrate Earth day and connect to the land. Much of the schedule is centered around opportunities for connection. We will meet in circle multiple times a day to share, be witnessed and held in our experiences. Each day includes one partner activity. Sunday brunch will be all about connection as a group. The bonds formed during this immersive experience are meant to last.
