Annual Fall Meditation

Retreat in the Hudson Valley

A weekend filled with unique instruction,
long walks in the mountains, good people, and
heart-opening meditations.


What’s It Going To Be Like?

Take the train up to Hudson — it’s a stunningly beautiful ride. Arrive in time for dinner and a stroll around the property. After dinner, we’ll unwind with simple stretching and a candle-light evening sit.

Saturday will be punctuated with deep meditation, philosophy, yoga, simple stretching and breathing, and — of course — gorgeous hikes!  Our time will be structured, but not overly demanding. The emphasis on this —and all my retreats — is on healing through compassion and nature.

Sunday will conclude with yoga, meditation, and a nice, long walk. The trails and the views are truly awe-inspiring. We'll depart after lunch, giving you plenty of time to return to the city to prepare for the coming week. 

This retreat is appropriate for beginner and experienced meditators. No prior yoga experience is required. 


Getting to and from Hudson

Friday night: dinner is at 6pm. Please join us if you can, but if you need to take a later train, that's fine!  The 3:15 Amtrak train will get you into Hudson at 5:15. You can catch a cab with other participants to the center in Claverack (15 min car ride from the train station). 

Sunday: We'll depart the center after lunch, around 1pm. There are 1:30, 2:30 and 4:30 trains out of Hudson. Book the 1:30 and get back to the city ASAP, or book a later train and explore Hudson!  

Please note: Amtrak regularly sells out and tickets get much more expensive as the dates get closer. Driving from the city? It’s an easy drive, but try to leave by 2pm at the latest to avoid Friday traffic.
