kitchen, as well as the trails, ponds, and meditation huts
on our 120 acre property.

You can spend your time in your private room or out in nature as you wish. We ask that you limit social contact and trips out in your car to only what is necessary, and take this opportunity to be still and go inward in whatever way suits you.
Your room may have wireless internet access for your laptop or other device, and cell phones usually work here. Our home land-line phone can be used for receiving or making emergency calls only. This number is: 802-533-2505.
We ask that you do not bring alcohol, tobacco, meat or fish, recreational drugs, pets, or camping vehicles, and that you do not use your car or phone while on retreat, unless there is an urgent need. We supply comfortable beds with blankets and pillows, and you bring your own linens or sleeping bag, towel, and pillowcase. (or rent them from us for $25)
Additional support may be available for solo retreats in the form of daily silent group meditation periods, and private sessions with Miles which focus on meditation and spiritual growth, or conscious communication skills. The suggested donation for individual instruction and support is $50/hour.
