Sunday Dharma Service 10:00 am – 11:30 am: Every Sunday, our local Dharma community gathers for a regular service, sometimes with our visiting retreat guests. Each service features yoga/chi-gong stretching, chanting, prayer, silent sitting (around 25 min), and a dharma talk to foster a calm and peaceful mind.
Wednesday Evening Meditation 7:00 pm – 8:20 pm: Every Wednesday, we settle into the quiet yin energy of the evening through chi-gong, chanting, and seated meditation.
Daily Morning Meditation 5:30 – 6:40 am: Every morning, we start our days in the dharma hall, enjoying our spectacular view of the Catskill Mountains. Morning meditations are mostly silent sitting (45 min) followed by a short period of sutra chanting and yoga/chi-gong stretching.

Body Rewilding, an original movement method created by Ruthie Fraser, is a synthesis of Structural Integration wisdom, functional movement, Yoga, and somatic exploration. In this class we will unbind ourselves from habitual patterning, find the resources of the ground and gravity, revive easeful movement coordination, and cultivate a fertile neutral state in which the body is resilient, available, mobile, stable, and alive. We will explore and embody the physical expression of various archetypes within us, working and playing towards true wholeness and agency.
