We provide meditation retreats in the healing presence of silence. We are nurturing the quiet heart, inner peace and self-healing. Time in silence, resting our awareness in the quiet heart, opens the present moment to infinite peace and our inner wisdom. One-on-one meditation instruction is included in each retreat. Spiritually nourishing, peace & quiet, allows time for reflection and relaxation. We are located on 25 acres of open land and surrounded by hundreds of acres of farmland.

The moment you register for a retreat…
you have begun to imagine and receive the gift of being less busy and more with your true self and inner peace. You don’t have to wait for your retreat to begin. You can enjoy this peace that you have already connected to. Take some time each day and let your retreat slowly grow in your awareness and in your life. Take some time each day and nurture your heart. The beauty and gentleness you find are all part of your retreat. Your life is a sacred sanctuary. Your heart is the garden.
