I'm delighted to introduce you to the FOREST SPIRAL, an open-air meditation temple in the forest at Beyul Retreat. (See more HERE.) After 20 months in the making and eight days of installation, we have crossed the finish line! The structure is up and just a few finishing touches remain.
My intention is to ensure this contemplative space is AVAILABLE TO ALL.
I am currently developing ART + MINDFULNESS FIELD TRIPS to the site. Working with my partners at Beyul — and local non-profits, hospitals, agencies and schools — we have designed a program that will provide FREE experiences to under-resourced populations that may not otherwise have access to the Forest Spiral and/or art-and-mental health offerings.
We're taking action to LOWER BARRIERS to access and BE AMBASSADORS to forest healing and wisdom.
**LIMITED TIME OFFER**
Now through December 31, we are able to accept TAX-DEDUCTIBLE DONATIONS in support of these efforts, thanks to a fiscal sponsorship with the non-profit Carbondale Arts. I invite you to join this creative journey by taking advantage of this rare opportunity, so that this important work can reach the widest and most inclusive audience.
