Meditation Classes

RiverSound Retreat, is located in the center of nature perfect for meditating.  Sunlight through the trees, the sound of the rippling river, and birdsong can help to ground and relax you through your mediation.

Breathe in the wisdom of nature that surrounds you as you meditate. You may share your view of the river with herons, osprey, bald eagles and deer.

This space is designed to awaken the awareness of your interconnection to the natural world.
