Your Turning Point Wellness Retreat Programs

Will you join us this summer at one of our 3 Your Turning Point Retreats?

We offer organic farm based, learn by doing, wellness retreats.  

At some point, many of us feel like we are at a turning point in our lives. We know that there are things that we want to change, but may not know how to do it and need inspiration and support. If that’s you then this retreat is the place, and this summer is the time. You will come away with a number of “light bulb moments” that can help alter your perspective and move you forward through your turning point. Is this what you need in your life right now?

During your 5 day/night, all inclusive retreat in the beautiful green mountains of Vermont, we will explore:

How To Become A Healthier Person

Start by learning what healthy food is and how to grow it under the guidance of Dave, one of Vermont’s most experienced and very popular organic farmers.

Watch and learn as local Chefs prepare delicious organic meals.

Experience the benefits of daily raw, organic fruit and vegetable juices.

Feel the health benefits of an organic raw food meal.

How to Stay Healthy Both Physically and Emotionally

Learn about healing with a variety of wellness tools: herbs, aromatherapy, Ayurveda, acupuncture, healing touch, energy work, yoga, hiking, and swimming.

Develop a daily mindfulness and meditation practice. Learn how to calmly respond rather than react.

Some of the benefits of mindfulness and meditation are: reduces stress, helps you know yourself better, improves comprehension, lowers depression, improves emotional processing, and improves sleep.

How to Find And Express Your Authentic Self

Experience how to find and relate to others from the real you through life coaching exercises during the retreat.

Learn ways to create safe, non-judgmental spaces for others so that honest communication can result.

Participate in the extraordinary opportunity provided by horses to experience your authentic self. Horses look for authenticity and leadership from others including humans. They have the ability to sense both the energy and intent of others. They can detect a person’s underlying feelings and emotions and respond accordingly. There is much that we can learn about ourselves from horses.

In horse world, the one who moves the other’s feet is the leader. When you lead a horse, the true leader is the one in front. If the horse leads you, this suggests that they don’t see you as the leader. Chances are that humans are picking up on the same energy. This is valuable feedback that helps us learn why the horse doesn’t see us as a leader and what we can do to change that view of us.

“Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.”

— George Bernard Shaw

Here’s what some of the participants said about the program:

“I don’t want to be dramatic…but I’ll say (the program was) life changing.” 

This program was the perfect manifestation of everything I would envision for a holistic healing program.”

“My husband has noticed a huge difference in me. He said, I’m starting to see that woman that I fell in love with.”

“It was a better experience for me than was a 2 month, in patient treatment at a VA hospital. End of story. That says how incredible it was!”

The program has had a positive impact on my overall attitude of day to day occurrences that might otherwise have instigated an anxiety attack. Several people close to me have recognized an improvement in my overall demeanor.”

The program made me concentrate on me as my best self. My best self is pretty good; caring conscientious and able to give people space- so they reaped the rewards.”

“I couldn’t believe how radically these guys attacked their lives and made radical changes, and they were so peaceful (about it).” (Dr. Chris Hamel, the Licensed Psychologist who taught last season’s mindfulness program.)

Do you have any offerings throughout the year? Am very interested in your type of gatherings …for women and in Vermont..hope to attend next summer but would love something now. Thank you for your help. Deborah Johnson Newcomb

Yes, I do Deborah. I’m continuing the retreats throughout the year now, just altering them slightly to accommodate the change of seasons/weather. Do you have friends you’d like to attend with, or would you be attending alone? I’m creating customized group retreats for 3 nights (Friday-Monday). We can even throw some sightseeing in if that’s of interest (particularly for folks new to VT). Let me know what your particular interests and situation are. My retreat website is :

Are you offering any retreats in October ?


Amy September 28, 2016 at 1:18 pm

Hi Margie,

Yes, though I don’t currently have anything scheduled for October at the moment, I’m now offering retreats year round. I’m trying a new format-I will create a customized retreat for a group of 6-8 people who know each other (maybe they are in a mastermind group, are colleagues, alumnae, friends, family members, etc.) with dates that suit their needs. It could be a long weekend, or mid-week. It’ll have the same basic format of activities, altered slightly depending upon the season. If the group has never been to Vermont and wants a bit of Vermont sight seeing, we can include that as well.

I may still schedule some retreats for the summer months so that folks that don’t have a group to attend with can still participate, and/or they may be welcomed into an existing group that schedules a retreat.

Feel free to contact me to discuss further.

Be well,
