About The Event

What if instead of chasing happiness and satisfaction you simply discovered them tucked inside the life you are already living? 

What if achievements and accomplishments were not about proving or improving anything but instead were natural expressions of who/what you are and the unique ways you get to contribute to, and dignify, your world? 

What if challenges and difficulties are part of the landscape, not punishment nor proof that you are somehow ‘doing it wrong?’ 

What if the goal and the point and the objective of this life is simply to live it, no-holds-barred? What if you already have everything you need in order to do just that? 

What if this is IT? 

From this perspective, all there is left to do is Revel. Rejoice. Celebrate. Enjoy. 

During this 4 day/3 night Yoga and Meditation Retreat we will practice fully embodying the present moment, neither rushing toward the future nor frantically trying to reconfigure the past. Through attention to detail, full immersion in the immediacy of sensation, and curious exploration of transitions and ‘in between times,’ you will continuously discover the ever-changing experience called ‘now.’ By watching your mind’s patterns, noticing when it drifts away and observing where it goes you will become ever-more fluent in your operating system: the attachments, aversions, unconscious belief systems and emotions that govern how you see and experience the world. Ultimately yoga is a path and practice of freedom. Perhaps by the end of this weekend we’ll all discover that we’re already free. 

Yoga Practice: our practices will be a blend of pranayama, yin & slow flow yoga, a few restorative poses, meditation, visualization and deep rest. 

I promise the classes won’t be too physically demanding, and they will be taught with ample modifications with the aim of meeting each person where they are and helping everyone rise. Together we will arrive in a space in which time appears to stand still.

Meals

Honestly at Heathen Hill you first come for the yoga but you come back for the food. It is incredibly delicious, healthy in the tastiest way possible, as fresh as fresh can be, and all prepared with devotion and sass by our hosts, Susan “Lip” and Lisa. 

Breakfast is self-serve in the kitchen of each house. Homemade breads, spreads, yogurt and fruit are among the offerings. 

Lunch, weather-permitting, is served on picnic tables on the lawn, and dinner is a served at a massive table in the main house. Lip and Lisa have truly perfected “Garden-to-Table” meals, growing most of what they serve in mostly vegetarian meals. You will probably buy one of their cookbooks and later lament that the food just tastes better at Heathen Hill. Please email with any dietary restrictions or food allergies so that Susan and Lisa can accommodate your needs. 

Pro-Tip: Heathen Hill is BYOW (*Whatever). Drink, Smoke, Nibble … this is a proud ‘judgement free’ zone.
