Relax, Renew and Awaken

with Madge Rossinoff

June 13 - 16, 2019


Discover relaxation and wakefulness in the rolling green mountains of Northern Vermont. Our Relax, Renew and Awaken program offers contemplative approaches for working with the fullness of daily modern life, bringing insight and inspiration to career, family, health, relationships, and personal endeavors of all kinds.

Join us for a spacious retreat that explores the wisdom and insight which arises from sitting meditation and which allows time to walk the land, visit our one-acre organic garden, or to follow the spontaneous callings of your spirit. Meet other participants over tasty meals (vegetarian options provided). Join in all or part of the scheduled activities: meditation (with instruction), conversation and contemplation, yoga, massage, hiking, and evening activities. Great for friends, couples, or individuals.

About Madge Rossinoff

Madge Rossinoff began her life-long study of Shambhala Buddhism in 1975, with the renowned Buddhist meditation master, Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche,  Since his passing,  she has been a student of his son and lineage holder, Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche,  Madge teaches meditation, leads Shambhala Training programs, and is currently the Director of Culture and Decorum for the  Shambhala Center in St. Johnsbury.            

Her focus as a practitioner is to train in meditation and contemplation, by using ordinary experience as a way to wake up, cultivate appreciation, and connect with the warmth and compassion that is our inherent nature; to explore the energy of emotions and habitual tendencies, and how they affect our relationship to ourselves, community, and to nature.

Madge’s priorities include growing food and working with her son, who is a seasoned climate activist and social justice organizer. She lives in the scenic village of Peacham with her husband, where they garden and enjoy the beauty of nature.
