Rest & Reflect |June 25 - 26

In-person only

With Steven Roussel

The weekend begins on Friday night as you check in for a relaxing getaway. On Saturday you will be guided in two relaxing meditations to help calm the mind, reduce stress, and give rise to an experience of inner peace and well-being.


There will be plenty of time and space to enjoy the quiet atmosphere of the Retreat Center for rest and contemplation.


At the end day, you're welcome to join an easy scenic group hike in the Kaibab National Forest just behind the IKRC Grand Canyon. If you wish you can stay the night and enjoy our Sunday morning class.

This is a perfect weekend getaway that is open to everyone.
