 What to bring

Mid-August in Michigan can be very warm. Please bring clothes appropriate for summer, but don’t forget long pants and a sweater/sweat shirt in case the evenings are cooler. There is also a lake for swimming, so feel free to bring your swim suit. (Rita speaking here: I for sure will be taking a dip or two during our stay!)


On the classes page, you will see a list of items to bring for the classes, and we will also be emailing the retreat participants prior to the event with any last-minute reminders about things to bring.
