"Behold what wonderful rest is in the Spirit
And s/he enjoys it who makes her/himself ready for it."
Retreat is a time to "Come away" and to be still, allowing one's Inner Wisdom to be heard in an environment of quiet and solitude. It is designed to nurture your spirit. Retreats are open to anyone seeking spiritual renewal and are open to people of all traditions. Prayer, meditation, Yoga via VHS and toning are practices available with retreats at Still Point.
"Dwell as close as possible to the channel in which your life flows." ~ Thoreau
A retreat can be private or a guided experience with an experienced Spiritual Companion. The private retreat can be an overnight, a weekend, a week or longer at any time during the year.
Still Point offers an opportunity for those involved in spiritual practices to come for silence and solitude. An extended time for retreat sometimes offers the opportunity for deepening one's spiritual path. For information and rate, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Retreat accommodations are in a rustic hermitage (cabin) for individuals who want silence and solitude or room in the Welcoming House. The hermitage can be an oasis of peace and restoration, a place of complete solitude where you can be re-energized as you become more aware of the body, mind, spiritual connections. The rooms in the Welcoming House provide space for those who have difficulty walking on the uneven terrain at Still Point; it also can be a place or refreshment and quiet.
The Welcoming House has a fully equipped kitchen, bathroom, a meditation room and an eating/ gathering room for groups of up to 30 individuals, located at the far end of the grounds, free of most disturbances. Both spaces are heated with a wood stove with propane heater backup. In addition there is a small sitting room with a selection of books which are available for reading. During the warmer months from April through October we offer 3 rooms in the Welcoming House for overnight or longer stays. We ask $55. per night for one of these rooms.
Four Hermitages (cabins) (one of the hermitages can accommodate 2 people; separate entrances and living spaces, adjoining shower and toilet) are ideal solitary spaces. Each is furnished and heated, nestled in a wooded section of 30 acres. All cabins have a small refrigerator, microwave oven, toaster oven, hot plate, coffee maker, hot pot and some utensils for meal preparation or cooking. Linens and some regular programs (if you wish) are included in the nightly rate. Cabins are closed for the Winter and re-open in Spring. Cost is $75.00 per day.
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.
