Welcome to the GRC! My name is Shana, and my husband Dan and I are the keepers of the retreat center and surrounding wildlife refuge. Along with our two kids (ages 16 and 12), 3 dogs, and a forest full of deer, bobcats, raccoons, foxes, tortoises, owls, and more, we are truly a "mom and pop" retreat center, dedicated to serving our community, or sangha, of kindred spirits. This is my first website and first GRC blog, and I must admit it is a joy to do! Thanks for visiting.
