A relaxing retreat with a mind/body/spirit focus. Singing, painting, poetry, basketry and wellness workshops have been offered in prior years. Strong bonds are developed through conference events and traditions like the opening/closing circle and poetry weave. There is time to unwind and enjoy the island and its rejuvenating energy.
