In this Fluid Mind and Spirit Intensive students explore a central question: How can we let go of fear, craving and attachment in order to become happier and more content? The Fluid Mind approach begins with a foundational understanding of Tibetan Buddhist mind training, and explores the science of meditation. The Fluid Spirit explores the tools students need to better understand their own minds.
Join us on the shores of beautiful Holland Pond in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont for two nights and three days. Enjoy the rustic charm and waterfront access of these cabins known as "Bliss" and "Beyond Bliss". The visual beauty made complete with the distant songs of loons and gentle lapping of the soft waves against the shore. Find peace and magic during this weekend escape.
Daily meditation and yoga classes will be offered as well as canoeing, kayaking, walking, hiking, hammock lounging, laughing and much more. We'll have plenty of options for moving the summer energy into Fall.
A slightly elevated camping experience please be aware that the cottages are rustic. What do we mean by rustic?
- One has electricity and running hot and cold pond water, the other has gas powered lights and fridge but no running water.
- Neither have indoor plumbing, but both have tidy outhouses and a commode for nighttime needs.
- There is no internet and cell service is spotty at best.
- Food will be done as an “organized potluck”. Once you register details will follow from our Host Deb Feiner.
SPOTS ARE LIMITED TO 9 PEOPLE.
COST: $100 for 2 nights. Meals are not included.
