Hey Hey Hey!!

It is with great joy and excitement that we invite you to join us this summer for another amazing adventure at Dancing the Path: ARE Camp's Retreat for Young Adults!!!

Dancing the Path is a 4-day/3-night retreat for Young Adults age 18-30+ to come together and to develop the personal skills and deep insights we need to walk our life-paths in fullness and JOY! This special retreat allows participants to explore community living through activities such as group meditation, joint meal preparation, work on personal ideals, hands-on learning of the spiritual concepts and practices from the Edgar Cayce readings, and of course an abundance of spontaneous fun and creativity - all while enjoying the stunning beauty of a Blue Ridge Mountain Valley. What could be better?!?

This year's Program is titled How the Light Gets In:

During this four-day retreat, we will engage in practices of solo and social meditation, mindful movement, and nature-connection to explore our relationship to ourselves, others, and our unique life path. We will go on a journey of discovering how to honor and appreciate our current way of being while stepping more fully into the deep truth of who we are and how we long to connect with others and show up in the world. This program will have a focus on bringing a sense of presence, authenticity, and bravery-vulnerability into the moments we share with others while dancing more confidently on our life path. Everything we will do on this retreat is rooted in the understanding that dancing the path is a process of learning to connect with, trust, and radiate the innate goodness, kindness, strength, and wisdom within our human hearts and minds.

Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack, a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in.
-Leonard Cohen
