Workshop Setting

This retreat will take place at Lifebridge Sanctuary in Rosendale, NY, located 92 miles ( a two hour drive) from New York City. 

The closest airports are La Guardia and JFK, and there is a Trailways bus into Rosendale that can be taken from Penn Station to Rosendale.

We have been closely partnering with Lifebridge Sanctuary for 15 years, as its founding purpose is to provide an supportive container for learning groups such as ours.  

It is a private, beautiful, intentional and accessable location for those who drive as well as for those who rely on airline travel.
