Vermont is seriously gorgeous this time of the year and the whole world knows it! I suggest booking housing right away and only cancel if you need to-- that way you have an option. The Elmore State Park is so beautiful, has hot showers and leantos.
For the occasion of this retreat, Jade will be sharing a tea meditation — a container of stillness where the practice of preparing, serving and drinking tea becomes a path to remembering the transient quality of each moment. Through this journey, we will explore how the practice of tea can serve as a support to infusing the wisdom of Nature and the five changes ; Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, Water.

There is nothing like practicing community deathcare while handling a physical corpse! For this training we will be working with LIVE bodies, however, we'll get the full experience of caring through the dying process (basic nursing skills), into the home funeral and all the way into the ground for a green burial. Sound romantic? Oh, yes, also, fun, funny, and challenging. Having practiced in real-life with a group of others fast tracks your learning so you will be able to help others in your family or community. This training is invaluable and will change your life!
