March 1 – 3, 2019

“Hygge” means creating a warm atmosphere and enjoying the good things in life with good people. 





Be in nature.      Be nurtured.  

 Laugh.              Listen.            

Be well fed in body and spirit.

While 6th to 8th graders explore what it means to be comfortably uncomfortable in the ACC,
We will create our own quite comfortable, cozy space in Pitt Hall.
We’ll share the ways we ground ourselves and our kids in a not-always-friendly world.

If the weather cooperates, we plan to bundle up and take a hike, enjoy a view, go sledding, and build a big outdoor fire. 

You should bring:

    • slippers or thick socks for staying toasty indoors;
    • warm boots and outdoor gear;
    • a story, music, skit or talent for cabaret;
    • a desire to be present with other good people.

We’ll provide:
    • hot cups of tea, fair trade coffee, and hot cocoa in front of a toasty fire;
    • a chance to make some new friends, maybe rejoin with some old ones,
    • a variety of games and discussions to help us feel the movement of spirit rising among us.

Julie Glynn returns again this year to co-facilitate with Mike Clark. 


Help us create this space...
