  • "EMBODYING PRACTICE 2018 was a wonderful experience for me and a much-needed restorative time to set intentions on creating and maintaining a time for daily practice in 2018."   ~ Debra

  • "Thank you for all the warmth, openness, and kindness you shared during the retreat, it was a truly special weekend."    ~Heather

  • "I found the retreat to be an amazing opportunity for me, a non-practitioner, to experience multi modalities of mindfulness and awareness.   It was life changing and is I think extremely useful in today’s fast paced, always on world.  Every person, everywhere would benefit from participating and it might actually make our lives more compassionate, authentic and enjoyable."    ~Carole

And so we must all go and celebrate nature and our lovely existence and we CAN do that in the SHAWANGUNK MOUNTAINS! Because if you haven’t heard my next retreat Mountain Zen Retreat is June 2 - 4 at this incredible Bed + Breakfast, Audrey’s Farmhouse in Wallkill, NY.

A True Mountain Zen Retreat!  John - you nature hipster (seriously, that beard!)  You would be proud!

Check it out here and stay tuned - I’ve been revamping this website so that I will have a mailing list per your request and I have about a dozen experiences at the ready for the summer.


wine tastings, sailing, weekend retreats, yoga/meditation creative experiences and more to come!

Oh and...

Happy Easter!  Happy Passover!  Happy Pink Moon!

Let’s just celebrate everything, okay? :)


I love you Hudson Valley.

I love y’all too.
