Leap into 2022: Create Your Intention

Dhi Good

December 30, 2021–January 2, 2022

Tuition + 3 nights

Join us for this special program and allow your aspirations for the New Year to become clear. Become more confident, creative, and committed through reflection and renewal. Our gathering will include guided mindfulness-awareness meditation, body practice, creativity sessions, contemplative practices, and conversation. You’ll also have open time to get outdoors, rest and reflect.

Dhi Good leads this program with help from a special guest or two, including her mentor, Jon Barbieri, who founded the Leap into the New Year program. See Dhi’s blog posts on Plan to Retreat in 2022,  Reflection:  The Key to Continuous Learning, and Samu: Training the Mind to Stay Present.

This year we extend a special invitation to LGBTQI+ folks to join us in a safe container. Allies are welcome too. Our intention is not to focus content about being queer necessarily, just to invite folks to come together in a welcoming community.
