What are the basic essential of Life?

Updated: Jan 15, 2020

The basic essentials of life are simple - maybe not easy - but simple. In our internet culture, we are often distracted from what's really important to us. Neglecting the basics creates frustration, worry and the feeling that something's missing.  At Spring Haven Farm, we reduce distractions to make it easier for you to get back to basics, to re-discover what is truly meaningful to you. The basic comfort of the lodging, the simple goodness of the food, the natural beauty of the surroundings all help to remind you that you don't have to be the center of the universe to be surrounded by the beauty and abundance of creation. The program directs your attention to what is important in your life now and encourages you to chart the path forward to your own goals. The outdoor activities engage body and mind in the un-mediated moment, the energetic simplicity of purposeful, physical effort. When you take care of basics first, then you can order your distractions, according to their importance, around that essential core. Getting back to basics is fun!
