RESONANCE: A Pathfinder Retreat

Following the success of last year’s AWAKEN retreat in November 2018, we are returning to Race Brook Lodge this September 26th through 29th. Nestled in the lovely Berkshire Mountains, we’ll be returning this year at a time when the foliage will be at its peak.

This year, we are exploring resonance: dialing into the frequency of life.

Our ability to resonate with sound and light⁠—to sensitize to it, manifest it, receive it, and send it⁠—allows us to experience the changes in our lives free of judgment. We don’t judge a tree for its roots and leaves, and neither should we judge ourselves for manifesting our truest nature: resting in the Dao.

This weekend practice will deliver new tools for you to experience and explore your life.

Connect with nature and community in the Berkshires during the most magical time of the autumn season. Join us for three nights, four days, and five transformations. We'll practice in the rustic beauty of Race Brook Lodge, surrounded by nature, trees, streams, and waterfalls. 

Attune: to yourself

Awaken: to the moment. 

Access: vital breath of the Dao

Community: sharing experience to grow together


What’s included:

  • Meals: Meals for four days and three nights.

  • Room: Accommodations for three nights.

  • Musical guest: World-renowned stand-up bassist, Garth Stevenson, will be joining us for a live performance.

  • Practice with Thomas: Deepen your connection to yourself and nature with two practices per day with Thomas.

  • Discussion: Daily discussion and question periods to deepen your understanding of Daoism, Qi Gong, and spirituality.

  • Hiking: Situated in the middle of the Berkshire Mountains, hiking is available at our fingertips.

  • Bonfire: On Saturday night, we'll integrate and connect around a large bonfire. (Please feel free to bring a musical instrument!)

  • Daily Meditation: Experience deep solitude through guided meditation daily with Thomas.

What’s not included:

  • Transportation: Attendees must provide their own transportation to/from Race Brook Lodge.

Gifts/Extra snacks: While light snacks will be provided in the lodge, any other snacks can be brought with you or purchased from Race Brook Lodge’s gift shop.
