Breathe, Move, Set Intentions
January 21, 2023
7:00- 8:30 PM
We will gather together online
Let’s gather together (online) for the first New Moon of the New Year. Forget New Year’s Resolutions, the New Moon is a time for new beginnings and fresh starts, an ideal time to set intentions for the month and year ahead. In this at-home yoga retreat, we will take time to breathe, move and journal getting clear on our intentions for 2023.
100% of the proceeds go toward the Sonja Kill Memorial Hospital in Kampot, Cambodia

Why a fundraiser for an ultrasound machine in Cambodia with a yoga retreat on Mount Desert Island?
In 2019 while volunteering in Cambodia, Jennifer was diagnosed with breast cancer and received preliminary care at a local hospital. While the care she received was excellent, it was limited by a lack of access to resources common in the west. When Jen returned from her time in Cambodia, she vowed to help that hospital offer care taken for granted back home, not just with breast cancer patients but across the women’s health specialty. A worldwide pandemic and a move across the country slowed the launch of this endeavor. But now that Jennifer has become part of the MDI community, this seems like a great opportunity to offer a great program for local, health-minded people while also keeping this promise she made to herself.
Can I give to the fundraiser even if I can’t come to the event?
