The Bluewater Community of Mindful Living is continuing to sponsor mindfulness retreats in the Plum Village tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh. We gather up north at Song of the Morning Yoga Retreat Center in Vanderbilt north of Gaylord. Song of the Morning is a beautiful, 800 acre retreat in the woods along the Pigeon River and is ideal for meditation.

We will enjoy practicing sitting and walking meditation, morning walks to greet the day, silent meals of gratitude, dharma discussions, yoga and other activities. The sangha is the teacher.

Our spring retreat this year will be held May 14-18. Please join us for the weekend, for all five days, or just for the afternoon. The cost is around fifty dollars a night or more for a bed in the dormitory “Domes” including delicious vegetarian meals.

Song of the Morning is now offering accommodation in the “Domes” on a “sliding scale” basis so you may offer payment as you are able.

Camping is available and encouraged.

Some private rooms and more deluxe suites are available at their regular rates.
