Zen at Swannanoa June 11, 2023
Community Stress Break at Swannanoa
We all know that Love is not just an emotion, it’s a state of being. It’s a force that can transform the world and heal even the deepest wounds.
The historic Swannanoa Palace, nestled amidst the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains, was built with great Love over 100 years ago. This architectural gem is a testament to Love, devotion, and beauty. Sadly, time, harsh weather, and limited funds have taken their toll on this gorgeous structure, leaving it desperately needing repair.
To help save this landmark, we have arranged our season-long workshop series to raise funds for restoring this beautiful old palace.
Our Zen at Swannanoa series is an excellent opportunity for you to join us in these efforts while learning more about how mindfulness can transform your life.
As Swannanoa is currently closed to the public, you now have a unique opportunity to visit the palace and relish its beautiful surroundings. Zen at Swannanoa offers a peaceful getaway for those who seek to unwind and recharge with meditation. You will not only learn multiple meditation techniques but also help us raise much-needed funds for repairs of this magnificent palace.
Our goal is to ensure that future generations can experience that same soul-soothing feeling when exploring beautiful Swannanoa.
Here are the major highlights of the events.
