Finding joy and light during the darkest months of the year. New England winters can feel long and isolating, leaving us craving meaningful connection. Connection to ourselves, and to others around us. It becomes easy to slip into a comfortable routine and spend less time doing the things we love. Use this time as a retreat from your daily schedule and let us provide a sacred space for you to reflect, honor yourself and awaken your body. Join us for a small gathering of like-minded individuals in cozy, heated yurts in Brownfield, Maine. Reclaim the daylight with active time outdoors and hunker down with community-building and creativity during the dark hours. This one's not for kids.
