Thank you for your interest in the Autumn Retreat on Shelter Island 2022
It has been too Long since I was with you in person, and it will be a wonderful time to share space and connections!
Shelter in September
I am offering a 5-Day retreat September 18th-22nd, 2022. We will be staying in a lovely Victorian house by the sea, with simple accommodations and spectacular views on beautiful Shelter Island. Shelter Island is a hamlet island off the coast of Long Island in New York. It sits between the North and South Fork of Long Island, and is is separated by water. Shelter Island is only accessible by car ferry.
This time is meant for you to reconnect after these long months of Pandemic Life. The retreat ends on Autumn Equinox, the official end of summer. “Equinox” is Latin for equal night, as day and night are of equal time on this day, and the sun is directly over the equator. This is the center of the seasons, a time of stillness, and balance. In the Buddhist tradition, it is Upeksha – Equanimity, a time to find center.
We will gather together to connect, practice yoga and spend time outdoors watching the sun set into the Ocean. It is a magical spot to watch the sun set, as we move into the cooler months.
