Working Together - TW Paint Party

After a busy season of retreats, now is a good time to paint and repair our casitas. Thank you to all those people who came to help out and also to Anya Neyman who gave instruction in Vajra Dance as well as helped paint! We hope to organize another 'Karma Yoga' week to maintain and beautify our wilderness Retreat Center either next month or before the winter retreat season starts in November. Please help us take good care of this unique and beautiful wilderness retreat center!
