This rejuvenating day combines the best elements of spa and meditation. Participants will pause and sit down on this bountiful earth in the peacefulness of the Osmosis meditation garden, cultivating presence and awareness of body heart and mind. This meditation retreat is a well crafted day weaving meditation, spa experiences, connection and quiet time in nature in our 6-acre sanctuary of secluded creekside meditation gardens.
The program includes sitting and walking meditation, a dharma talk, a cedar enzyme foot-bath, a customized 75-minute massage, organic lunch prepared by Fork Roadhouse, time for quiet reflection and conversation around how to continue the practice in our daily lives.
