Inaugural Southwest Regional Inter-Community Retreat

Lama Foundation opens its doors this summer for a Southwest Regional Inter-community Retreat. In partnership with fellow communities and with the help of the FIC (Fellowship for Intentional Communities), we are co-creating this exciting opportunity for networking and commingling among folks from diverse communities.

Through discussion and activities we will explore best practices, challenges and problem solving, and sharing resources. All participants and communities will benefit through learning from one another, by discovering our similarities and differences, and experiencing our strengths and weaknesses.

Our aim is to enrich each participating community and participant by providing an opportunity for collective reflection on the meaning and possibilities of community in our unique age.

Cost: In the gift plus $50 registration fee

Thank you again for your hospitality
Wind Spirit -Thank you so much for hosting us! Everyone at Wind Spirit was so giving, caring, and supportive. We so much appreciate that! The food was excellent! I do not even know how to express all my gratitude for the opportunity to host our little retreat in your beautiful paradise.
Yulia  Goddess Retreat 2018

Dearest All,
I had such a fantastic time and want MORE retreats! As many as possible! I'm being greedy now, but it would be a wonderful thing to do for myself regularly, and to be so close and feel so far away is a real treat! The land and people, energy, and food at Windspirit are beyond fabulous and Joanna sure seems meant to do retreats! in her element! Again! I've never taken a class from her oddly enough, and was amazed by her teaching style and presence. So, Windspirit, Joanna, yogis, you have my love and support for energetic expansion in all subjects!
Dr Cindy - Cynthia Gerszewski, DC  ..and then I realized that there is no way to happiness, happiness IS the way.

I want to thank everyone for the amazing retreat. I WANT MORE!! The experience over the weekend was profoundly rejuvenating, inspiring, and joyful. The love, generosity and kindness of all of you truly touched my heart and spirit!
Thank you Wind Spirit community for sharing your gorgeous light filled land and for amazing food, laughter, and love!
Again, Thank you all for an amazing weekend!
Much Love and Namaste!  Alden
