Note: This is not a Greater Good Science Center event.

The second running of Feathered Pipe’s homegrown Mindful Unplug Ranch program takes place during the longest days of summer solstice light, when Montana’s wildflowers are in their full glory and the new moon light of this special week will offer exceptionally brilliant starlit nights.

Join the Feathered Pipe Foundation’s handpicked team of leaders in the fields of yoga, mindful movement, visual arts, sound, and meditation for a rejuvenating week choreographed to enliven all your senses — with ample unscheduled time for you to drift easy and soak up the gifts of leisure time at the Ranch.
