Blog, eNews | 0 comments

As you may know, New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham has amended our state’s public health orders. We are delighted to be able to welcome visitors from many states without requiring quarantine!

If your state is on the “restricted” list, you can still visit! You just have to provide a negative Covid test. Please see our website for specific details.

Because autumn is a magical time in Northern New Mexico, we hope you will schedule (or re-schedule) a trip to take an in-person workshop. Can’t make it in person this year? We have three new online retreats to offer.We hope to see you soon.

NOT MISSING THE MOMENT:
THE TEN-LINE POEM IN THE TIME OF CRISIS

with Anita Skeen
We have lost a lot. But there is, or can be, a silver lining to this dark cloud: We have time, if we take it, to notice the small things we would have missed in the normal fast pace of our frantic pre-pandemic lives. There are treasures around us we have left undiscovered. There are small moments of joy that are more important now than they were. Capacity 12.
