What should I expect?

The practices and workshops that are planned for the weekend are designed to be enjoyed by everyone, all ages. They are, in fact, your birthright. They represent tools available to you for self-cultivation and self healing. You are your own master, your own healer.

The power to transform yourself and therefore the world lies within you.
humble yourself, show up, and practice, practice, practice. No deep transformations ever occurred without some discomfort. Step out of your comfort zone and challenge yourself. Then practice, practice, practice.

Are there any rules?

Not too many.

But some common sense considerations are in order.

No dogs, this is a farm rule to protect the dogs that live there.

Make fires in designated area only.

Please, no car stereos.

This is a "leave no trace" event. Please bring a trash bag with you and leave nothing but footprints. Leave the land more pristine than you found it.

Pay what you can, work trade if you can't!
