At this intimate retreat, limited to 18 people, you'll enter a state of deep relaxation and emerge feeling rejuvenated and restored. You'll also make lasting friendships with amazing people and enjoy a dinner party in a beautiful home off Union Square (with a greenhouse!). Participants report having "the most productive week of my life" after The Path Experience.

On June 24th you're invited to a meditation and yoga experience followed by a dinner party .. unlike anything you've experienced before. This retreat is designed to reconnect you to your body, breath and intuition.

We'll gather at a beautiful home off Union Square for meditation, yoga, breathing exercises and more .. a retreat designed for first time meditators and people with years of experience. We'll also enjoy wisdom talks, group discussions, social time and breaks with gourmet snacks. You'll have a chance to meet and really connect with other mindful change-makers in the city. And you'll reenter the outside world from a different place. Feeling calm, centered .. and ready to follow your bliss.


Testimonials from past attendees.....

"I've had one of the most productive and crystal clear weeks in ages. I'm overwhelmed by the amount of progress I've been able to make in a week in my work and in my love life, and I think part of that is having a clear mind."

"I recommend it to anyone, especially my friends that think they can’t quiet their mind .. that have a hard time being present." 

"I got a sense of camaraderie out of this group retreat. Meditation is a very solitary practice, so I like the community and feeling like I’m not on this journey on my own."

"The meditation left me feeling more at peace and open"

"It was fantastic - well timed, energetic, informative and fun. HIGHLY recommend."

"You crafted a wonderful experience"

"My primary reasons for coming were to deepen (and broaden) my understanding of meditation and how to practice it, meet new people and have an uplifting and novel experience. You delivered on all those things."

Asked how they felt after The Path Experience, people said:

"I felt AMAZING. And I looked amazing too. I am going through a difficult life change at the moment and I felt as if I got my radiance back for the first time in a long time."

"Really open and a bit blissed out"

"Elated. Peaceful. Connected."

"Everyone was so lovely and I felt rejuvenated yet calm and ready to spread the love throughout NYC!"

"I felt great! Everyone was very easy to get along with and I feel like I met many interesting people as well."

"Amazing. My face literally changed. I think I look 5 years younger!"

"Much lighter and much more in tune with myself... rejunvinated to start meditation again."

How can The Path Experience change you in just 5 hours?

  • You'll enjoy three meditations & two yoga sessions, working from the outside in.
  • We'll explore the five layers of being: the physical body, breath body, mind, intuition and our innermost core, the bliss body (yes we'll get to this!).
  • We'll relax each layer so by the end of the retreat you'll have room .. to play .. and access your full creative potential.
  • You'll also experience a shift in perspective and connect to what's really important for you. 
  • This is a powerful, uplifting and deeply restful experience, with a profound impact on your body and mind.

On this day you'll go within. focus your attention. and make great new friends.
