Facilitated by Chelsea Cartwright: Chelsea believes in going at your own pace, honoring every corner of your being, so we can fully embrace ourselves and our world. She delights in being able to share honestly, be witness and hold space for others to share, and to explore with curiousity our aliveness and ability to move and be moved, listen and express alone and in community.

What to bring: yourself, willingness, water bottle (there will be springwater available), soft clothes for moving in without buttons and strings, layers, snacks and anything else you need to be comfortable. A light breakfast will be provided, but lunch and dinner are out & about, or bring your own.

If you're From Away ... and need a place to stay the night before or the night after, please let me know. I will set you up with local sleeping space.
