About This Event

This week will be a week of being around highly trained, highly skilled martial artists as your peers. This is a weekend for all level martial artists to come out, learn from each other, meet other martial artists, play together, build campfires, share word circles, and the option of a sweat lodge is available.

This is a bonding experience to grow with new friends. Feel united with one another. Take the politics out of life for once and come together as brothers and sisters. Everyone will get an opportunity to share if they like.

Every morning we follow a different meditation practice or vote on the same one all week, the choice is up to you.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Reconnecting with basic goodness in an environment of people who share a vision for a better society. Wimberly

Retreat Guru's Vision

Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health.
