New Year's Retreat

Dec 29, 2022 - Jan 1, 2023

Unity…the heart of the matter!

The New Year’s Retreat falls just after the winter solstice. Joining together in spiritual retreat as the earth turns toward the sun, and the old year falls into the new, strengthens personal reflection on the light within and brings new tools to expand its glow within ourselves and our communities.

Practice, Explore, Connect, Reflect, Celebrate!

  • Classes: meditation, pranayama (breathing exercises), and asana (postures)
  • Presentations and conversations on the theme of Unity
  • The Cafe (online): opportunity to visit informally and share stories
  • Play, hike, hot tub, and explore acres of forest and meadows
  • Evening Arati (devotional service offered to one’s chosen ideal of the Divine)
  • Kirtan (devotional singing)
  • A special New Year’s Eve program
  • New Year’s Day - Mantra Yajna for Peace (fire ceremony with chanting)

We look forward to sharing this time with you!

Dear Friends

We are currently prioritizing accommodations in the Conference Center for those registering for the full length (December 29th-January 1st) of the Retreat.

If you'd like to request a partial stay of one or two nights, we are currently offering the following options:

  • Own Tent Campsites ($105 per person/per night)
  • Own Van ($105 per person/per night), or
  • A Cabin ($180 per person/per night if coming alone or $160 per person/per night for a group of two coming together and sharing a cabin).

If one of the above accommodations meets your need, please register your date(s) of preference and we'll manually create a New Year's Retreat registration for those specific nights.

If you prefer a hotel style room in the Conference Center, but are unable to attend the full retreat, we'll be happy to waitlist your desired special length request and notify you of availability on December 19th.

Important Notes about Lodging:

Rooms: All beds are single size, and sleep 1 person only. Single, double and triple rooms are hotel-style. Bathrooms and showers are centrally located on each floor.

  • Double and triple rates are ONLY available to groups of 2 or 3 that are staying in the same room. You must list who you are sharing the room with on the registration form below.
  • If there is only 1 person staying in the room it is considered a Single.
  • If there are 2 people staying in the room it is considered a Double.
  • If there are 3 people staying in the room it is considered a Triple.
