Summer Update 2018

Posted October 2nd, 2017

The Summer season at the Hostel kicked off with three exhilarating retreats, Visionary Goddess Retreat run by Veronika Tuskowski, Back to the Roots run by Jessica Fein and Madre Tierra run by Ella Dufrene. The first was a divine artistic workshop celebrating the feminine spirit. The second was a creative and musical explosion. The third was a journey of awakening with a little fire hooping thrown in. Fun was had by all. The next retreat is a three day acroyoga fundraiser for Acroyoga Montreal teacher, performance partner, and circus muse Sally Newman, who is battling a devastating cancer. It is aimed at those with at least a little knowledge in acroyoga, and promises a new set of acrobatic skills to anyone who attends. It kicks off June 22nd-24th.

In other news, a new batch of baby ducklings hit the Hostel on the last day of May of this year. Right now Captain Sandals, Peabody and the rest of the nutty crew of baby ducks are settling into their new home where they will stay until they start shedding their baby fur and grow their little feathers. Why do baby ducks have fur? It keeps them warm silly head… They just love their warmth and are under a constant red light where they cuddle puddle their days away. They have a constant appetite and they are already growing like crazy. At this pace they will be as big as the main dome in a month or so. Wow! We will see what happens. All we know is there is an overdose of cuteness right now at the Hostel.

Summer here has been refreshing as the 90 degree heat in the middle of the day often succumbs to afternoon thunderstorms that cool thing off significantly going into the nighttime. The lake is a superb temperature and we have blueberries and blackberries growing in abundance. There is a new wig wam with trees growing into a 100% natural little house by the water. A large new shade cloth is keeping the garden veggies at a perfect growing temperature. Everyone looks sexy with their summer tans coming in nicely. Things are good. Thanks for tuning in.
