Stimulate your mind and heart with simple yet powerful principles from the East while refreshing your body in the serenity of Vermont.

The Learning Part

During the weekend we'll explore principles of Japanese psychology, blending the practical, the spiritual and the psychological. Saturday's focus is drawn from Naikan and will include topics such as self-reflection, cultivating gratitude, giving and receiving, service, and empathy. Sunday's focus is drawn from Morita Therapy and will include topics such as working with your attention, self-discipline, coexisting with feelings, setting goals, finding purpose, and establishing daily life criteria.

The Leisure Part

Take a short drive and relax on the shore of Lake Champlain. Hop an evening ferry and watch the sunset over the Adirondack Mountains. Ride your bicycle through covered bridges. Take a walk on the Robert Frost Nature Trail or if you're more ambitious try a climb to the top of Camel's Hump Mountain. Good food is abundant in both Burlington and Middlebury. Or simply relax on our deck with a book, a glass of maple lemonade and a breeze.
