Bringing Your Own Food

We are celebrating our First Ever Blissed Life Retreat by bringing our own delicious food. This way you  get to enjoy all of your favorite tastes and remain  satisfied during your stay.

You are welcome to bring any and all food that makes you happy as long as you remain conscious about your waste (keeping recyclable and trash containers in your own bags or containers and disposing of off the land, and please refrain from bringing styrofoam to the site).

You may also bring a small grill and natural charcoal to warm or cook your meals at your campsite.

You are welcome to eat and snack throughout the day at any place on the land, including bringing a snack to your workshops, as long as each space is left clean.

We will have a few designated community eating spaces set up to eat and share in groups and a scheduled community dinner. Dinners may be done potluck-style for those who wish to participate, and all are encouraged to join in group dinner and discussions as a way to connect with some amazing new friends.
