The first few weeks of June have definitely been a crazy one for me. In order to escape the hustle and bustle, I’m heading into the woods for a weekend of camping.

Life Among the Stars
Rosslyn will be kicking off its new Zen in the City series on Thursday, June 16 in Dark Star Park (the park with big cement spheres that look like Death Stars, for those who don’t know). The program looks willing to push your boundaries, as this isn’t just yoga in the park. For this first event, Kara Simon of Loving Heart Holistic Wellness will host a “sound bath.” Stop by and join her effort to bring peace to the galaxy. —James Finley, senior editor
