 Assembly Inn, Montreat Conference Center
Type: Conference Center
  Description: Originally completed in 1929, the 101 room Assembly Inn has undergone a major renovation. New windows have been installed throughout the building, as well as an upgraded heating and air-conditioning system. All guest rooms and public areas have been refurbished with new furniture, carpet, paint, art, lighting and bedding. This stately hotel is a beautiful stone building, overlooking a small lake. It has a beautiful, spacious lobby with a fireplace and comfortable furniture for fellowship, puzzles and games, or just relaxing. The building was made from native stone that sparkles with mica. The dining room is in the same building as our housing and meeting facilities, and an elevator serves all floors (except for 7 steps going into one main meeting area). Of Montreat's 4,000 acres, 2,500 acres are dedicated to wilderness and are entered in the NC Registry of National Heritage Areas, and we have more than a dozen maintained hiking trails. Tennis courts also available. We will have board and card games in the lobby for your enjoyment, but if you have a favorite, please feel free to bring it along. An outdoor pool is located on the grounds, but it not open during our Road Scholar programs (only open June 1 - first week in August). However, a lovely fitness center (Cheshire Fitness) is located just a few miles away, and they offer daily or weekly rates for visitors. There are no TVs or phones in the individual housing rooms, but there is a TV in the main lobby, and guests can be reached by leaving a message at the front desk (staffed 24 hours a day). If it is urgent, the front desk staff will contact the coordinator who will deliver the message in person, otherwise a note will be left on the guest's housing door. A quiet reading room is also available, located near the main lobby of the Assembly Inn.

Driving Directions
  From All Points - to Interstate 40 Come to Western North Carolina via Interstate 40; use exit 64 for Black Mountain/Montreat/Route 9 (15 miles east of Asheville, NC). At the exit, turn north on Route 9 (go through one traffic light, across a railroad track and another traffic light, and up the hill to the traffic light). Go straight across where Route 9 becomes Montreat Road, and travel approximately two miles to the Montreat entrance (stone gate). From the gate, continue approximatley 1 1/2 miles to the middle of the conference center. The Assembly Inn is on the hill on the left, across from Lake Susan. Pull up to the front door of the Inn to unload, and then park your car in one of the marked spaces along the lake or the Inn. Please note: do not trust a map or GPS that tries to bring you in on Route 9 (except for the last few miles) instead of Interstate 40 (unless you desire to travel along very sharp curves, up and down mountains). Also, do not take Flat Creek Road... come up Montreat Road (Route 9 North).
Elevation Note: Participants may wish to hike on their own in surrounding mountains, which peak elev. exceed 5,400.

Equipment Requirements: Anyone wishing to enjoy outdoor activities (walking, hiking) should bring hiking boots or shoes with tread on bottom.

Daily Schedule

Day 1: Orientation
(Sunday, May 31)
   
 Afternoon: Arrival at the Assembly Inn, check in between 4 - 5:30 p.m. Pull up to the portico to unload your luggage, and then park in any of the marked parking spaces along the Assembly Inn drive or by the lake.
 Dinner: Dinner will be served from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. in the Assembly Inn Dining Room. All meals are served buffet style.

Fresh-brewed iced tea (sweet or unsweet) and coffee available, as well as water and a variety of milk options.
 Evening: Our opening program/orientation will be from 7 - 8 p.m. We'll spend some time learning a little about Montreat, going over the schedule, meeting your instructors, getting to know each other a little. We know you'll be tired from your travels, so we'll end by 8 and you may enjoy refreshments and fellowship in the lobby, or retire to your room.
   
Accommodations: Assembly Inn, Montreat Conference Center
Meals Included: Dinner

Day 2:
(Monday, June 1)
   
 Breakfast: Breakfast 7:30 - 8:30 a.m. in the Assembly Inn Dining Room. Is breakfast your favorite meal of the day? You're in the right place then! Breakfast options change each day, but will incorporate lots of your favorites. Biscuits and gravy, french toast, pancakes, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, grits, hash browns, oatmeal (not the package kind either), and lots of others. Standard offerings include fresh fruit, cereal, yogurt, granola, baked pastries, orange juice and another juice option. Fresh coffee or hot tea will start your morning off right!
 Morning: Our first morning class, we will begin our exploration of the Psalms with Jim Chatham. “Psalms, the Poetry of the Human Struggle” Psalms 22 & 23 What does each of these psalms say on its own? What was the Psalms collector suggesting by placing them side-by-side? What situation in your life and mine does this tandem address, and with what message? We will take a fresh look at the best known psalm in the Bible, plus its next-door neighbor. We'll have a mid morning break and then come back to class for our presentation on Total Conditioning with Maya Andrau. We'll discuss and experience Abdominal Breathing, Anatomical Plumb-line, Foot-care massage, Center of Gravity, Aerobic overview, Stretching/Strengthening (neck, shoulders, spine, hips/legs, Relaxation (toes/ankles).
 Lunch: Lunch is served from 12:30 - 1:30 in the Assembly Inn Dining Room. Mondays are typically our "build your own sandwich bar" day. Fresh-sliced sandwich meat, a variety of bread offerings, lettuce and tomato slices, and some potato or macaroni salad to join the sandwich... or perhaps a bowl of soup. Don't pass up some crunchy chips and a cookie or brownie for your sweet tooth!
 Afternoon: Welcome to our first class on Aerobics for the Brain! This is an opportunity to explore and discover more about the wonders and workings of the brain in a relaxed atmosphere that invites spontaneity and a sense of adventure. It’s not a typical “instructor-at-the-podium” setting, but instead we’ll be seated in a circle and also gather in small groups each day. Improvisation is the heart of this class, along with music and movement that also help sharpen the brain, but have no fear, this is a comfortable and non-threatening environment that’s easy on the body, especially for someone who might need to sit, or for those in a wheelchair. Individuals can choose to participate or observe anytime. Daily handouts, a bibliography and website links will be provided. The Brain: Amazing – Astonishing – Riveting – Reassuring: Today we’ll discuss the cognitive functions of the brain, myths about the brain as we grow older, and we’ll explore the scientific research and practice of using neurobics in our daily lives. After class ends, there'll be an opportunity for a Walk Around Montreat (guided tour of grounds) or free time.
 Dinner: Dinner, 5:30 - 6:30 p.m. at the Assembly Inn Dining Room. Yep, it's time to eat again!
 Evening: Evening program, from 7:00 to 8:00 games/cards and tv available in the lobby for fellowship. Perhaps a movie on a big screen, if the group is interested
   
Accommodations: Assembly Inn, Montreat Conference Center
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 3:
(Tuesday, June 2)
   
 Breakfast: 7:30 - 8:30 a.m. another yummy breakfast is served in the Assembly Inn Dining Room. Try something you have tried before (or at least in a long time).
 Morning: Early morning lecture on the Psalms with Jim Chatham. Psalm 51 is radically counter-cultural, out of sorts with the way the world lives. And yet, it stands as the center-document in a major biblical message, spoken from cover to cover. What is the psalm saying? What does it tell us about ourselves and about God? What does it challenge us to do? We'll have a mid morning break and then come back to class for our presentation on Total Conditioning with Maya Andrau. We'll discuss and experience Intercostal Breathing, Posture (sitting, elbows, low back support), Massage (stroking, raking) Body Mechanics (lifts), Aerobics, Stretching/Strengthening (neck, shoulder, spine, hips/legs), Relaxation (knees, hips/buttocks, low back/abdomen)
 Lunch: Lunch is served from 12:30 - 1:30 in the Assembly Inn Dining Room. Have some fun with lunch today! Our "taco Tuesday" menu means you can build your own tacos, taco salad, or whatever "Mexican entrée" combination you'd like to make. Chips, melted cheese, salsa (as well as jalapeños if you're so inclined) make it a perfect escape from the ordinary. Leave room for some cobbler and ice cream!
 Afternoon: In the afternoon, we're back to exploring Aerobics for the Brain! Neuroplasticity: This will be an opportunity to understand more about how the human brain is able to reorganize and restore itself by forming new neural connections throughout life. We’ll also look at the benefits of movement and exercise and how important it is in keeping our gray matter sharp and focused. After class, there will be an opportunity for those who would like to take a guided hike in the mountains (or Free Time).
 Dinner: Dinner will be served from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. in the Assembly Inn Dining Room. Typically our "holiday dinner," enjoy fresh baked ham and turkey with all the trimmings, (dressing, green beans, bread, sweet potato casserole and scrumptous desserts)... but no relatives to worry about and no dishes to wash.
 Evening: 7:00 - 8:00 evening program: Evening programs are typically a fun event -- a dance, a concert, or a storyteller games/cards/tv available in lobby for fellowship and optional movie on big screen.
   
Accommodations: Assembly Inn, Montreat Conference Center
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 4:
(Wednesday, June 3)
   
 Breakfast: 7:30 - 8:30 a.m. breakfast in the Assembly Inn Dining Room. Have you tried the biscuits and gravy yet? Go ahead.... just once! You can go back to your cereal and banana when you get home!
 Morning: Our morning starts out as usual with our discussion of the Psalms with Jim Chatham. Psalms 89, 90, & 91 How is the believer to respond to drastic, overwhelming trauma? What shall we make of it when the train really wrecks? The trauma for Israel was the destruction of Jerusalem, the Holy City. There were no easy answers, but these psalms, linked together, form a delicate reply we might never imagine. We'll have a mid morning break and then come back to class for our presentation on Total Conditioning with Maya Andrau. We'll discuss and experience Upper Chest Breathing, Posture (plumb-line guage -- wall side hold), Massage (kneading), Body Mechanics (lift and lower weight), Aerobics (resting pulse), Stretching/Strengthening (neck, shoulder, spine, hips/legs), Relaxation (upper back/chest, fingers, wrists)
 Lunch: Lunch is served from 12:30 - 1:30 in the Assembly Inn Dining Room. Well, yes... you've figured it out... we do lots of "comfort food." We're supposed to... right? You're on vacation... you're learning and relaxing? Wednesday's lunch is usually chicken sandwiches and a baked potato bar.... so smother your baked potato with broccoli and be good... or add cheese and bacon and sour cream... it's up to you! Have some fresh fruit instead of a dessert this time.
 Afternoon: Free time to explore the area! We'll provide a listing of area attractions and directions for explorations on your own! Here without a car? No worries... if you haven't made a friend to explore with, we'll help you figure out something fun to do.
 Dinner: Dinner will be served from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. in the Assembly Inn Dining Room
 Evening: Wednesday evening class is on Effective “Active” Listening: A time to hone our mental skills and fine-tune our senses that help with communication and memory retention.
   
Accommodations: Assembly Inn, Montreat Conference Center
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 5:
(Thursday, June 4)
   
 Breakfast: 7:30 - 8:30 a.m., we'll have another good, hearty breakfast in the Assembly Inn Dining Room
 Morning: Our early morning course will explore Psalm 103 with Jim Chatham. God's forgiveness is one of the greatest blessings in life, cause for exhilaration. But what happens when God forgives people we don't want forgiven? Exodus 34, Psalm 103, Nahum, and Jonah—together—portray a drama that takes place deep within the human soul, very familiar to us. We'll have a mid morning break and then come back to class for our presentation on Total Conditioning with Maya Andrau. We'll discuss and experience Combination Breathing, Posture (contractions, concentric, eccentric, static), Massage (tapotement, hacking, cupping), Body Mechanics (push/pull), Aerobics (target heart rate, heart recovery rate), Stretching/Strengthening (shoulder, spine, hips/legs), Relaxation (elbows, shoulders)
 Lunch: Lunch is served from 12:30 - 1:30 in the Assembly Inn Dining Room
 Afternoon: "Oh, hi! Aw shucks, what's your name? I know I know it, don't tell me... it's.... oh well." This afternoon, we'll focus on "Recognizing Faces – Remembering Names" A concern many people have, especially as we age. We’ll talk about short-term and long-term memory issues, and how we can navigate the challenges of remembering more efficiently on a daily basis. Next up.... "Food for Thought" ...a lively team-building exercise about the foods we eat and how brain function is affected. We’ll wrap up our time together with a checklist of innovative ways to promote good brain health and function. Other topics we’ll explore during the week (as time allows or as pertains to the topic) "Music and the mind" ... "Health benefits of laughter" ... "The power of play" ... "Non-verbal communication" ... "Attitude is everything" 3:30 - 5:30 free time
 Dinner: Dinner will be served from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. in the Assembly Inn Dining Room
 Evening: 7:00 - 8:00 evening program: games/cards/tv in lobby for fellowship (no movie tonight).

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 6:
(Friday, June 5)
   
 Breakfast: 7:30 - 8:30 a.m. breakfast in the Assembly Inn Dining Room. It's your last chance to try Ronnie's biscuits and gravy! Don't leave Montreat before you do!!!!
 Morning: Today, we finish up our discussion on the Psalms with Jim Chatham. Psalms 136, 137, & 138... Psalm 137 is the most horrible psalm in the Bible, speaking words that are bitter and vicious. Some have wanted 137 deleted. But when it is clustered between 136 and 138, the result is electric, showing us ourselves in full view, and issuing a redeeming, much-needed word. We'll listen for the word... We'll have a mid morning break for refreshments and to facilitate checking out of the hotel (checkout is required by 11 a.m.). Then, our last opportunity for discussion and experiencing the course on Total Conditioning with Maya Andrau (but we've learned so much, we'll keep doing what we've learned!!!) Explore "Che-Che" Breathing, Spinal Elongation walk, Trigger point compression massage, Body Mechanics (2 person lift, carry & set-down), Aerobics (exercises while sitting), Stretching/Strengthening (shoulder, spine, hips/legs), Relaxation (neck, face) 12:15 - 12:30 closing program and saying good-byes
 Lunch: 12:30 - 1:30 lunch in the Assembly Inn Dining Room (those who cannot stay for lunch may request a box lunch to take with them)
