This is not a conference. There are no business meetings! Just lots of fellowship, laughter, music, learning, and fun! … And Kanuga’s beautiful natural surroundings, wide shady porch with rocking chairs, cool breezes coming up from the lake…. an uplifting, educational, musical, memorable, laid-back, fun gathering of Unity friends from the southeast and beyond.
Blue Ridge mountain Kanuga Conference Center recently renovated 62-room Inn and historic cabins in the woods. Plan to join us in beautiful Hendersonville, North Carolina, for a wonderful time to explore spiritual teachings, relax and center yourself amidst the mountain splendor, and enjoy playtime with fellow seekers!
The daily schedule is packed with interaction and activity. Of course, you can chose just how much you want to plug in to. There’s plenty of open, quiet space for you to chill and commune with nature connect with old and new friends, take a nap, or drive into town to enjoy the quaint hospitality of Hendersonville and Flat Rock.
The experience begins with dinner on Tuesday evening and lasts until Noon Friday. Fees include: 8 meals (3 dinners, 2 lunches, 3 breakfasts), 3 nights lodging, and all workshops and programs.
