Retreats and Gatherings

As a retreat facility, we offer a place of refuge where people can withdraw from the business of daily life and refresh themselves. Accommodations are simple, comfortable, and quiet with enough space to breathe, rest, and meditate. We can schedule retreats of any length for up to 165 people. Please note the Institute is available for group retreats only, and we cannot offer space for individual retreats or practice at this time.

Our facility includes our spacious, light filled main Meditation Hall, three rooms for smaller sessions, a large auditorium, and our beautiful, monastic wood beamed dining room. We offer bedrooms that are simple but beautifully furnished and are available as singles, doubles, triples, and quads. Our bathrooms are designed in an elegant Zen esthetic.

Each floor has a comfortable lounge for relaxing, reading, or just enjoying the Hudson River views.

Situated on a bluff overlooking the Hudson in the midst of the dramatic Hudson Highlands, our grounds offer trails, ponds, meadows, scenic overlooks, and, of course, the majestic river.
