Still Point Interfaith Retreat Center, located in upstate NY, just minutes from downtown Saratoga, is open during the year for  private retreats, a day of quiet and prayer, group or staff retreats, youth retreats, business retreats and church groups.  At this time we cannot accommodate overnight retreats for groups with more than 8 people unless you wish to 'camp'. There  are 4 fully winterized hermitages (cabins) nestled in the woods along with a large facility, The Welcoming House, for groups.

We offer space for individuals who want silence and solitude at an affordable price of $55 per day. All cabins have a small refrigerator, microwave oven, toaster oven, hot plate, coffee maker, hot pot and some utensils for meal preparation or cooking.  N.B.The double cabin (1 & 2) and cabin 3 have some mustiness in the air and may be problematic for those with certain allergies.

We now offer 3 rooms in the Welcoming House during warmer weather for those who do not wish to walk to and from a cabin. There are 2 small rooms with a single bed and night stand and 1 room with a futon which pulls out to make the equivalent of a double bed. All 3 rooms have doors which connect to the larger eating and lounge area. These are available at $45 per night.
 

Take 24 hours from your busy schedule. Come to one of our cabins. Pray!

             Be silent. “The quieter you become, the more you hear.”

And whom do I call my enemy?

An enemy must be worthy of engagement...

The door to the mind should only open from the heart.

An enemy who gets in risks the danger of becoming a friend.

From This Morning I Pray for My Enemies' by Joy Harjo

It is not 'forgive and forget' as if nothing wrong had ever happened, but 'forgive and go forward' building on the mistakes of the past and the energy generated by reconciliation to create a new future. Alan Paton

Silence and aloneness can be at once overrated and yet under­valued! Coming to appreciate both silence and aloneness as well as the 'noise' of being with others requires a balancing of consciousness. Perhaps it is the shift from living in one's 'head' to living from one's heart that does it. Anyway the fruit of silence and solitude is a growth in compassion and forgiveness both of which come from the heart. May we take the time to cultivate living from one's heart through regular practice of silence and aloneness regardless of the length of time spent. It will help us to become who we are meant to be: images of Divinity! Rowena Fay

"I honor the place in you where the entire Universe resides. I honor the place of love, of light, of truth, of peace. I honor the place within you where if you are in that place in you, and I am in that place in me, there is only one of us." Ram Dass

In a world where division and suspicion of differences are rampant, Still Point is a sacred space where unity-in-plurality is valued
. Every part is essential to the whole.
