We will focus on open water comfort and safety considerations that are different from swimming in a pool. We will also do some swim skill building geared towards beginner or intermediate swimmers. Mindfulness, meditation, and self inquiry will be integrated into the experience.  There is nothing quite like swimming in a natural body of water under the wide open sky - come join!
