Relax, Renew and Awaken

with Madge Rossinoff

October 19 - 22


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.
