BEAUTY IN BELONGING
WORKSHOP

Diving into one of our greatest human strengths, we remember our truest sense of belonging. This workshop, involving group discussions and partner exercises, is a transformative heart-opener designed to help us overcome obstacles on our path and to re-discover the art of being seen.

ECSTATIC DANCE EXPERIENCE

You are invited to dive into the beautiful art of explorative and expressive movement. You are welcome and also encouraged to connect with the music, to be authentic and to move your body (or not move) however you feel most organically pulled.

ACCOMMODATION
ACCOMMODATIONS
 
OLD MILL MUSEUM
242 Toledo St, Dundee, MI 48131

To understand the past, we investigate the present. The Old Mill was built of Greek Revival Design in 1848, and has since been restored by community volunteers to create a historical museum, which opened in 1986. The building contains three stories of permanent and changing exhibits. “It is compact, geometric and of exquisite proportion,” according to the community’s Sesquicentennial Book.

We are renting a 26x30 room located within the museum for our yoga, workshop and gathering space.
When on lunch break, you are welcome to explore the museum and exhibits.

GOLOKA ECO
9756 Ferder Rd, Maybee, MI 48159

A few years ago, a small community of friends, scientists, engineers, writers, designers, farmers purchased land that would later become known as Goloka. Goloka Eco is a ten-acre, non-profit, eco-sustainable farm and animal sanctuary that offers bhakti-yoga retreats, no-till farming lessons, hydroponics training and cow therapy experiences.

We will enjoy a beautiful and spiritual experience with the cows outdoors, followed by a delicious dinner indoors. For our evening activities, bring a warm change of clothes that you don't mind get dirty.
