2007 – Harmony Hill Retreat

This retreat was our first educational and experiential activity as a non-profit. Margo Adair chaired and Bev Hollander and Esther Johnson were committee members. It was an incredible experience. Margo ably managed the advertising using both our members and the internet to get a flyer distributed. She picked a setting that was both beautiful and peaceful. The trees were in fall color so even the trip there was an invitation to open to the beauty of fall colors – yellow, red and oranges – against the backdrop of the dark green evergreens and rest into the experience awaiting.

Friday, October 26 to Sunday, October 28, 2007
Harmony Hill Retreat and Conference Center, Union, WA You can download the comments made by participants: Comments from Harmony Hill.

Spend a relaxing weekend in a learning community with your colleagues.

Enjoy the incredible tranquil beauty of Harmony Hill Retreat Center in the great Pacific Northwest.

Let the talented dining staff pamper you with delectable vegetarian fare.
