Healing and Recovery

lupine + quote copy

Healing takes place naturally in an atmosphere of relaxation and peace. Nature is one of the most powerful tools to bring an inner rejuvenation to mind, body and soul.

These programs are led by teachers who are skilled at bringing forth your own inner potential for self-healing and transformation.



11-bright-bright-sunlightOpening the Heart- A Guided Retreat with Nayaswami Brindey
September 5- 7

$130 (program fee and meals) to select your accommodation, click the orange “Book Your Stay” in the upper right on this page

If you want to learn how to feel and experience devotion at a deeper level, this Program is for you!

Part of going deeper in devotion is yearning for God’s inner response in silence which forges that divine inner contact. You will be given tools to learn how to listen for that longed for response!

Your host for this retreat will be Nayaswami Brindey who will draw from Paramhansa Yogananda,  Swami Kriyananda and Sister Gyanamata’s writings on prayer and devotion.

During this weekend you will explore:

  •    Basic meditation skills
  •    Ways to deepen your existing meditation and devotional practices
  •    The power of nature and guided nature activities to open the heart and still the mind.
  •    Simple techniques for healing body and mind and spirit
  •    Time alone to relax and feel
  •    Healthy and delicious meals
  •    Gentle Yoga

A perfect weekend if you are new to personal retreat or wish to have just enough structured time and activity to allow you to relax in yourself and find renewed inspiration for your spiritual life!
