Embrace Autumn CANCELLED (Friday, October 06 @ 12:00 am)
Sorry – this event has been cancelled!
Join us for our third annual walking and yoga retreat! Enjoy a full weekend of yoga, meditation, and walking/hiking at the Stony Point Retreat Center in Stony Point, NY, a stone’s throw from Bear Mountain and Harriman State Parks and the majestic Hudson River. We will stay in our own private Victorian mansion on the 26-acre secluded campus, complete with beautiful period furniture and details. The rooms each have 2 beds and an ensuite bath, and all rooms are elevator accessible. If the house fills up, there are several rooms available in Stony Point’s more standard accomodations, a few steps away from the Gilmore Sloane (and at a slightly lower price). Meals are served in a common dining room and all food is carefully prepared, and locally sourced – including from the Center’s own farm – as much as possible. The center also has a serene meditation space, gardens, and a labyrinth. You can find more information about Stony Point here. Click here to see photos from the 2015 retreat.
Your retreat begins with a welcome practice at 4PM, followed by dinner, and will end after lunch on Sunday. We will hold two meditation and/or yoga sessions each day, with walking or hiking excursions at one of the nearby state parks or along the river. We will always offer at least 2 options for each activity so you can do what makes the most sense for you.
Cost: The cost of the retreat is $450 per person, based on double occupancy in the Gilmore Sloane House. The price includes two nights’ lodging, all meals, and most activities. (Slightly lower-cost lodging on campus is also available, either as a single or a double. Contact me for price details about these options.) If you register by August 1, the price is reduced to $420.
Space is limited in the Gilmore Sloane House and we expect to fill it, so if you are thinking of joining us, don’t wait to let us know! Rooms will be assigned on a first-come first-served basis, with additional housing available elsewhere on campus once the house fills up.
What Past Participants Are Saying:
I loved the yoga weekend. The yoga sessions were wonderful, the other activities, i.e. the hike on Saturday and the walk on Sunday were well planned and very enjoyable, the location was charming and full of interesting furniture, even the gift shop had lovely items. Best of all was the warmth and congeniality fostered by Lynn and Stephanie . Sonya and I look forward to coming back next year. – Evelyn Lorge

g of ‘no place to go–nothing to do’ except to experience the peace that presents itself in this kind of immersion. The buildings & grounds were a visual delight & the food was perfect. Everyone was warm & welcoming. The expertise of our leaders was exceptional. This was an unforgettable experience & one I would highly recommend!”– Jeanne McCabe
