Register Online

December 28, 2013 – January 1, 2014 Saturday through Wednesday (4 nights)


Relax into a time of serene rest and renewal.  Open to the new year’s unfolding with a retreat that honors your heart, mind, and soul.  Practice mindful meditation in the rhythms of daily life with sitting, walking, and eating meditation, as well as mindful dialogue.  Savor sustained periods of silence, quiet reflection with poetry and stories by the fireplace, small and large group discussion, an afternoon in the art studio, laughter, gentle Kundalini yoga, and deep relaxation.  Restore your spirit and enter the new year with greater calm, clarity, and energy – and ways to sustain yourself in the coming year.
