Our venue for the weekend will be The Ashokan Center - a historic retreat center in the foothills of the Catskill Mountains in Upstate NY, just 2 hours from NYC and 20 minutes from Kingston.
The center features gorgeous indoor gathering spaces, heated cabins for up to 150 people and is surrounded by beautiful forests, meadows and streams.
Over the course of the retreat, we will explore daily themes through embodied workshops, Ecstatic Dances, guided meditations, nature walks and more.
The arc of the overall experience will be:
DANCE WITH SELF
DANCE WITH OTHER
DANCE WITH COMMUNITY
FEATURED ARTISTS & TEACHERS
+ more TBA
REFLECTIONS FROM PRIOR YEARS
EPIC. It was transformative, enlightening, awakening and overall a profound experience.
I don't have words to express how amazing this experience was for me. I was lucky it took place in a key moment of my life when I was in need of a true healing experience. I enjoyed every second of it.
Wow, the whole experience was incredibly therapeutic for me! We were graced with such a strong energy of support for the week. The magic was palpable and clear. I’m so happy I said yes to this experience!
