What would happen if you got nothing done today?

If your ‘to do’ list turned into a ‘be’ list?

Can emptiness feel good?

We lose ourselves in the hundred details that keep life in forward motion.  When we’re fixing we stop noticing how perfectly right things are. Life’s treadmill can overwhelm us.  When we hop off for a moment, move even just a little bit away, perspective ripens.  Take this opportunity to drop all the doing.  Retreat in the cradle of community for more than a few breaths as we give ourselves collective permission to just be.

Join us in the oak-studded forest of residential Four Springs Retreat Center for three days. Cultivate being with mandala-making and 5Rhythms® dance.  Harbin Hot Springs is right next door…big invitation to soak all day Friday before we begin and/or spend the night there on Sunday, continue soaking on Monday.  See more info below about Harbin Hot Springs.

It’s gloriously re-opened now for the best of soaking with camping, lodging, cafe. Consider expanding your retreat and soaking all day Friday before we begin at 6:30. How about an overnight stay Sunday? Info on day use rates and overnight stays:
