The retreat schedule will include daily morning sessions with Roberta Wall, daily afternoon sessions with Rabbi Andrew Hahn, explorations with various guest teachers and two inspiring lectures with Dr. Joan Borysenko. There will also be time in the schedule for full access to Isabella Freedman's hiking trails, lake, pool, yoga classes and more.
