This seven day program is designed as an immersion experience into Retreat Center life. Four hours per day for five days will be spent working in various aspects of the Center: the garden, the kitchen, home care or maintenance. The remainder of the time is for your personal development, individually and sharing with others. Participants will have time for meditating, hiking, studying and swimming. Each week provides a different experience and opportunities for personal growth. Please come with a willingness to participate and learn. This program runs from May through November and is available at other times by arrangement. Your Center Life experience can start on whatever day you like.
