Leaving from Yonkers
Set your mind a sail as we transform the Sloop Clearwater - a floating national historical landmark - into a vessel of meditative wisdom.
Aboard the ship, a simple mindfulness meditation workshop will be offered to you: creating the space to cleanse, balance and reconnect with your true self upon the sacred Hudson River - “the river that flows two ways.”
You will experience an authentic tall-ship sail as we initially join an “all hands to the halyards” to help hoist the sails. Then we begin our meditation with the Clearwater tradition of a moment of silence and reflection. After meditation, our captain will steer us throughout this truly majestic environment and indulge in its kindred connection to our understanding of the power of nature and it’s soothing effect on the mind. Continue to relax and enjoy the sail as we mingle and indulge in tasty snacks, light beverages, wine and healing fresh air.
