Come to the coast of Maine where you will be met on the dock for a trip by boat trip Whitehead Island where the sky is dark and where you can see stars that few can still see because there is little light pollution here.   We will sharpen our mindfulness skills to enjoy the fresh air, dark skies, take early morning  boat trips, learn constellations,  listen to talks by astronomy educators who will have their telescopes for viewing on clear dark sky nights, feast on lobster, and stay in classy historically renovated rooms in the lighthouse  keepers  home and be served delicious home cooked meals using local ingredients. This is truly a relaxing and rejuvenating vacation.
