Sunday February 23rd, 10:00 am
Cost - Free (No need to sign up, just show up)
Please come join us at East Palisades Chattahoochee Nature Trail (only 2 miles from Sati!). We will meet in the parking lot and go over a few tips on how to engage our senses on the hike and move with more awareness.

Feel free to e-mail us at
Details: We will meet at the Indian Trail entrance parking lot and the hike will be a mix of easy to moderate so some folks might like to bring a hiking stick. Please note there is a $5.00 parking pass fee for the park.
The Subtle Joy of Presence: A Mindfulness Meditation Retreat at Elohee Retreat Center
With Adam Funderburk, LPC and Huda Al-Qatami, LPC, E-RYT 200, RYT 500.
April 17 - 19, 2020
Among the world’s contemplative traditions, it is a time-honored practice to go on an extended silent retreat. The experience is intended to deepen one’s practice and create a temporary refuge from life’s daily demands. The focus, the silence and the beauty of nature offer a setting that is often difficult to find in everyday life.
With the beautiful north Georgia mountains as the backdrop, this weekend retreat offers participants an opportunity to deepen their mindfulness practice, as well as a chance to experience the subtle joy of being present. The retreat will consist of both sitting and walking meditation, as well as mindful movement and hiking. There will also be ample free time to relax, unwind, and commune with the incredible natural environment.
This retreat is open to both beginners and experienced meditators. Please note that we will be observing noble silence during most of the retreat, which includes unplugging from our electronic devices.
This weekend is all-inclusive with:
* Two nights accommodations (including all taxes, fees, program tuition).
* All meals prepared by a local chef using nutritious and delicious freshly-prepared ingredients. Beverages and a 24 hour tea house are available.
