The need to slow down, de-stress, and root ourselves in nature is more important than ever before. We invite you to unplug and join us for a day of tranquility and revitalization this summer. We will gather in the gorgeous, natural setting at Rock Cut State Park and use silence as a tool for nervous system restoration, life force regeneration, and spiritual reflection. Each moment of the day has been lovingly and thoughtfully curated to rest your tired mind, inspire creativity, and invigorate your soul. You’ll be guided through a full schedule of activities, and all of the day’s activities will be conducted in silence to heighten one’s awareness of the beauty of nature and allow for an intimate connection with Mother Earth.
