    • A lawn chair for campfire or outside meditation. (You are welcome to also bring a yoga mat.)

    • Sturdy shoes if you like to hike. (Many, beautiful, wooded trails.)
    • Possibly a mattress topper or extra sleeping bag for more comfort.
    • Some women like to bring a fan or sound machine for white noise. The sleeping area is in one long hall, separated from the gathering area by a small passageway and a door.  We ask women who stay up later to converse to please use the big meeting room or dining hall space.
    • Open mind and warm heart!
