We have a beautiful boxwood labyrinth in our back meadow that can be used for group and private contemplative practice.
Our front meadow features benches that overlook the Hudson River.
We encourage you to enjoy our splendid outdoor environment. In the front of the Institute is a grassy open meadow framed by woods.
In the warmer seasons, we grow a garden. Our flowers are arranged throughout the building, and our herbs are used in our food.
Adjacent to our front meadow, a wooden gazebo provides splendid views to the Hudson River below.
Bonfires built in the fire pit can warm guests during cool evenings.
There are trails throughout the woods that adjoin our property, some of which lead the way down to the Hudson River and others that connect with the Appalachian Trail. One trail marks the path of Benedict Arnold when he ran to escape his captors.
