Hurricane Island Retreat

with Rachel Nixon, Yoga Instructor & Lover of Islands
Friday, August 30, 4:30 p.m. to Monday, September 2, 2 p.m.
Last year was so much fun! We're going back... 
Join us for a spectacular weekend retreat on beautiful Hurricane Island in Penobscot Bay! Tune in to the rhythm of the tides, the wind and waves, and the vast sky all around. Connect with yourself, breathe deeply, and relax.
Our days will include yoga and meditation, as well as island exploration and discovery. We will enjoy connection and laughter, as well as periods of stillness and silence. There will be plenty of time to rest and unwind. We will enjoy delicious, healthy meals sourced from local farms and fishermen. You can choose an invigorating dip in the ocean or a glorious outside shower at the bathhouse (indoor showers available, too). We will sleep in shared cozy cabins nestled in the trees beneath the stars.
The 3-night retreat is a special opportunity to live and practice in harmony with the natural world.
Friday, August 30. We will meet in Rockland at 4:30 p.m. and then make our way to Hurricane Island in time for dinner, orientation/settling in, and an evening circle.
