1949 GMC: The art of slowing down

With the first week of our 2019 GMC stated to begin this weekend, we thought it would be fun to look back on the 1949 GMC from a quaint (and gorgeous) journal we received.

Our GMC’s have always been a place where participants can unplug and reflect on the environment, make new friends and explore new terrain. The journal does a perfect job at explaining why these things are so special and why it’s important to slow down to have these types of experiences.
