Why are Danes said to be the happiest people in the world? Certainly, it’s their culture. But it’s also an emphasis on lifelong learning – a tradition carried forward from the first Folk School, founded in Denmark in 1844.
Exchange the hustle-and-bustle of modern life for restoration of your spirit at a week-long retreat on the banks of the Mississippi River.
Or choose from an a la carte menu of individual classes, tours, and other activities.
