A gathering of ladies empowering Self awareness for Self healing.

We are very excited to create another sacred gathering of women celebrating the light that shines from within and listening to Mother Nature to help ground us for the coming seasons that encourages us to go within.

This Ayurvedic & dosha driven  retreat focuses on claiming your right to Self empowerment in a serene, magical location.

The word “ayurveda” is Sanskrit: आयुर्वेद, Āyurveda, meaning knowledge of life and longevity.

The doṣa, (Sanskrit: दोष), or doshas, are a system of healing that examines physical constitution, emotional nature, and spiritual outlook in the context of the universe.

These biological energies are found throughout the human body and mind. This is an ancient Indian belief system that govern all physical and mental processes and provide every living being with an individual blueprint for health and fulfillment and derive from the Five Elements and their related properties.

Understanding the doshas and applying healing Ayurvedic elements into your everyday lifestyle will enhance your overall health & well-being.

Nestled in the spectacular Finger Lakes region of New York State is the very special sanctuary,  Light on the Hill Retreat Center.

From the moment you arrive, the ills of “householder life” will melt away long enough to rightly place the focus on the Self for healing and expanding to take root.

We’ll unwind and deepen our practice of being kind to our Selves…. together.
