Mindfulness

A deliberate, investigative form of awareness that through continued practice can offer individuals a way to develop a more genuine connection with self and others. A variety of meditative techniques will be taught throughout the weekend. The development of a daily practice will be explored and encouraged.



Adventure

An exciting, fun approach to trying something new, that you didn’t think you could do or might be uncomfortable doing. The Adventure activities will include the use of cooperative games, problem solving initiatives, and the low and high elements on a challenge ropes course. Through the use of observation, reflection and inquiry, these activities become metaphors for real life experiences and therefore offer the opportunity to create personal challenges, meaning and growth.


Yoga

Music

A local musician will perform Saturday night whose performance if guaranteed to have you singing and moving along to some of your favorite songs campfire style.
