Join us for our first day trip of 2013!
Time to say goodbye to winter and celebrate Spring! Leave the City behind and enjoy the best of all worlds: nature, spirituality, and meeting like minded people.
We will be going to Hudson Valley Park of Study and Reflection in upstate NY, near Kingston (about 2 hours north). It is a beautiful, private 5-acre property and retreat center where you can experience a relaxing, fun day, of spiritual renewal and friendship. For transportation options see below.
This meetup is a Seasonal Celebration – a social and spiritual event with a variety of activities to choose from.
Pot luck: Please bring a favorite dish to share.
Exploring the forest: The real beauty of the Park is a dense and hilly forest with winding paths, a wide stream fed by a cascading waterfall and a hill known as the Summit, that is both a lookout and a natural meditation “hall”.
Group meditation: A brief discussion on the historical meaning of celebrating the change of seasons with personal reflection and a Ceremony of Well-Being
Where: Hudson Valley Park of Study and Reflection, 1170 Hwy 213, Kingston, NY
When: 12 noon to 5 pm, Saturday, March 23rd
Transportation and Cost: No charge for the day at the Park. We have made arrangements to rent a van with a driver. The cost is $30 round trip. Seating is limited. To reserve contact Nicole at [masked] or call[masked]. A $15 non-refundable deposit is required.
We will be gathering at 9:15 in front of the Intercontinental Hotel, 44th between 8th and 9th Ave. The van will depart at 9:30 am sharp. We will be leaving the Park at 5pm and will be arriving in Manhattan around 7pm.
