It’s an annual tradition: Celebrating Canada Day with a Retreat!

To celebrate Canada Day and what appears to be the official arrival of summer, Wendy and Darin hosted a mid-week retreat, June 30th through until July 2nd.

Highlights of this retreat were the delicious meals (And desserts!), the spectacular fireworks, and the afternoon art project (see more pictures).  We collected rocks from the island and painted them white, then guests had the opportunity to spend a few hours relaxing and painting. All of the rocks that were painted are now contributions to Shanti. Into the gardens they go, and into our soon-to-be labyrinth!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The evening of Canada Day, we were graced with a beautiful Canadian coconut cornmeal cake by Chef Sheran, who created a Canada flag upon it made of fresh raspberries. After dessert, we all head to the dock to watch the fireworks that were going on in Kingston, and celebrated as well with sparklers.

Ah, to be children again. Summer is here to stay!
