I cannot wait to share with you the serene, natural chi-full beauty here, a place I visited for 4 summers during my Qigong training. Talk about depth of experience. The space held by it’s owner, Dave and his daughter Chloe (and the assortment of local people who weave the week into a community of kindness) is just gorgeous. You will be so supported on your journey to upgrade your energy and be resource-full, and so very welcome.
