Our schedule includes guided mindfulness and loving kindness meditation, vinyasa and deep stretching classes, yoga pose alignment clinics, free time for reading, relaxing, or walking in the woods, wonderful plant-based meals, and plenty of warm friendship.“May everyone be happy and safe, and may all hearts be filled with joy. May all beings live in security and in peace - May all of them dwell in perfect tranquility…” – The Metta Sutta
