The Center & Bird Sanctuary



An Inviting Escape

"Everything on the earth has a purpose, every disease an herb to cure it, and every person a mission. This is the Indian theory of existence." – Mourning Dove Salish


A small private non-denominational monastic retreat center for those who desire a safe meditative place.   We encourage mindfulness development through the process of going inward that silence and fasting can foster.  Private but not isolated this 2.5 acre “nature park” sits at the end of the shawangunk mountain range in the beautiful Hudson Valley, NY.
