WYC Summer Retreats are unique offerings to our students and community! The activities and practices of the retreat create a safe container for inner and outer transformation. Through our shared practices, a synergy between all participants occurs that serves to connect everyone to our own deepest essential nature.
As we unplug from cell phones, internet and our city lives, we begin to melt into the daily schedule. Inner transformation happens as we discover the silence underneath our thoughts and experience the beauty and power of nature
As we glide into a more spacious inner world, we will visit and dip into the refreshing spring waters of the river outside our doorstep! The sounds of a waterfall will accompany our meditation and asana practice.
A retreat day includes morning meditation, asana and restorative yoga classes, evening satsangs and 3 daily delicious meals prepared fresh from the Pumpkin Hollow organic garden. There will be time to play, sleep and read.
Our retreat has shared accommodations in lovely renovated cabins around the grounds. A limited number of private rooms are available.
An outdoor fire circle for evening satsang.
Walks in the Labyrinth for contemplation and walking mediation.
Hikes on forest trails to enjoy the beauty of the land.
“Nestled amidst the Berkshire and Taconic Mountains, Pumpkin Hollow Retreat Center covers 130 acres of open fields and lush forests. The Teconic stream flows through the Hollow, past the campfire grove and swimming hole, the garden and the meditation center, then rushes over a waterfall and out through the base of a deep hemlock-lined gorge.”
Pumpkin Hollow offers a unique setting for workshops, retreats, yoga and meditation. The central farmhouse, meditation center, meeting room and renovated cabins are surrounded by shady areas on our beautifully groomed grounds. Across the stream, a network of nature trails connects to the labyrinth, Healer’s sanctuary, peace prayer pole and meditation walk and campfire grove.
