“I want to be as idle as I can, so that my soul may have time to grow.”

S P A C E is the intention of this ReTREAT. We’ll set out for the Blue Ridge Mountains to distance ourselves from the noise and constant pulling of our attention—turn off your cell, leave behind the demands, and drop the expectations. Use the time to be bored (which most of us have forgotten how to do), contemplate, and nestle into conversation with fellow participants. Through our guided discussions, meditation, yoga, and hikes, you’ll rediscover what it means to “have” space and learn how it’s used as a tool to maintain peace, clarity, and to support others. You’ll begin to feel different as you renew your spirit and connect back to your inner knowing.

Over the course of the ReTREAT, you will participate in stillness, movement, and discussion. More specifically:

  • seated meditation
