We will gather at Blueridge Summit Retreat on Sunday, April 30th to carpool to the nearby Appalachian Trail for a 2 mile round trip hike. We will stop at a beautiful mountain stream flowing among abundant mosses and ferns (AT to the left on Morgan’s Mill-605).
We will experience some gentle stream side yoga and spend some quiet moments there before we complete our hike including a moment to make a small cup of local, herbal tea. We will carpool back to the studio for our covered dish (vegetarian) and enjoy some beautiful meditative music by Jami (Kirtan).
Please bring a vegetarian offering for the covered dish and dress comfortably for hiking and gentle movement outdoors. Please bring your own bug spray.
