Join the Consciousness Explorers Club at the gorgeous Bela Farm and barn for an immersive day of meditation in nature! You are invited to a hundred acres of open space where you will be greeted by grass under your feet, fresh air in your lungs and all the soothing sounds of nature.
This summer we’re offering two retreats in one day!
11am-3pm Mindfulness FamJam – fun mindfulness activités for children of all ages and their caregivers
4pm-8pm Nature Meditation Retreat – mostly silent mini meditation retreat to connect to the nature around you and within you
Some snacks and drinks will be on offer, but please bring your own meal(s) and whatever you need to sustain yourself!
Free parking is available on site. If you are able to offer a ride to/from the farm, or are in need of a ride, please add your info to the RIDESHARE SHEET
