Alternative Spring Break 2016 – Peace by Piece
Stony Point Center, Stony Point, NY
Dates: March 13-19 or March 20-26, 2016.
Other dates may be possible.
This would be a week of intentional living, dreaming, playing, and exploring opportunities for multifaith friendships and shared work springing out of different perspectives and traditions.  Students would also have time in the new Art Space, the Meditation Space, greenhouses (it is planned for March after all), and time to rest and recharge too.
In the hopes of making this a yearly, touchstone experience, we plan to have a person of inspiration each year, whose writing and work will be part of our daily engagement and conversation.  This year, that person is NAU alum Kayla Mueller, the 26 year-old humanitarian aid worker who was kidnapped by ISIS (see flyer) in 2013 and killed earlier this year.
Cost is $650 per person plus travel to Stony Point, NY. There is an early bird discount of $100 with a $100 non-refundable deposit by December 1, 2015. Deadline for full payment is January 15, 2016. For every six students, an accompanying group leader will receive half off the cost.
