Hiking and Forest Therapy Retreat
***Only 1-2 spots remain open at this time***
When: August 8-15, 2021
Where: Plymouth, Massachusetts
Join us for a week of hiking and Forest Therapy amidst the woods, ponds, marshes and beaches of southeastern Massachusetts! This retreat will include spiritual input each morning as well as contemplative hiking, two sessions of Forest Therapy, two sessions of Qigong, and lots of prayer and sharing. There will also be some free time each day to spend in prayer, at the beach, or wherever you wish. Hikes will be 3-5 miles long on trails in the moderate range, with some small hills and occasional rocky sections. The retreat is also an experience of community as all join in the preparation and sharing of meals. In the evenings we will gather again for prayer and to share the graces of the day.
The cost is $250 (includes housing and meals from Sunday supper on August 8 to lunch on August 15). If cost is an issue, please let us know and we can negotiate.
Space is limited. Rooms will be shared. Tent camping on the lawn is an option. For more information and/or to express interest in attending, email your contact information to email@example.com.
