Over the course of three days, yogis and laypersons alike gather at Jackson WellSprings in the peaceful pursuit of community and individual prana, or life force. Surrounded by the 30-acre campus—a botanical garden situated around a natural hot spring and founded in 1862 as a refuge for healing—guests soak up a host of healing activities. At four stages, musicians lead communal singing, or kirtan, during sets that range from call-and-response chants to energetic electronica to a performance by Jai Uttal, a Grammy-nominated guitarist.
Throughout the day, attendees can clean out their chakras during myriad yoga sessions led by top-shelf yogis or dive headlong into meditation at the tipis in Heart Chakra Healing Village.
Oregon Concealed's instructors prepare their students to pass concealed-firearm permit exams in Utah and Oregon with both in-person and online classes. Taking care to address every aspect of the concealed-carry-weapon process, the instructors take photos and fingerprints of students, give out certifications for concealed-carry-weapon license applications, and teach owners how to camouflage their weapons for hiding in urban environments.
