  1. Can yo tell me exactly where this is held and the nature of the lodgings?


    • Hello Ellen!
      Sure, this is held at the beautiful studio/home of Melinda/David Harrison + NatureMoves on a large tract of totally beautiful wild + private land in the foothills of Rocky Mts near Boulder. The nature of lodging ranges from simple bedding in shared room/floor space to outdoor covered bedding + camping. All lodging includes access to full bathing + kitchen facilities + features glorious views to the east across the plains. If you have certain needs/desires please do not hesitate to contact us directly by PM and we can discuss that and do our best to accommodate them. We create delicious breakfasts + dinners as a community. Folks do lunches on their own. Does that help?
