Have you visited Drala Mountain Center and experienced the rejuvenating and inspiring power of our secluded mountain valley? This program draws on a traditional Fengshui understanding of the vibrant, communicative presences available when we open ourselves to possibilities beyond a purely functional, mechanistic worldview. The land of Drala Mountain Center will be used as a template to deepen our connection with the natural world. Through a greater understanding, delight and integration with the land and specific elements in and around DMC, we will develop the curiosity to apply this experience to any environment.
On Friday evening, there will be a presentation introducing some of the unique energetic elements, dynamics and relationships present at Drala Mountain Center. On Saturday morning, afternoon and on Sunday morning, we will go on three hikes to directly experience the power of the land. Two of the three hikes will only be accessible by foot.
