Women in Relationship with Life

Gratitude, Stillness, Balance & Joy

A Weekend Retreat for Women

Friday, September 20 (5 p.m.) – Sunday, September 22 (noon)

Light on the Hill Retreat Center

Van Etten, New York

Leader: Dalya TamirWomen's Retreat

The retreat will be a tapestry of silent meditation periods, song, and sharing circles. We will weave the themes of gratitude, stillness, balance and joy as we settle into the moment and open to our experience. We will especially explore our relationship to situations, environments or people who challenge our sense of calm and expansiveness and ask ourselves: What is my relationship to this moment?  Can I see each “obstacle” as a friend who is helping me awaken?


Silent periods: Both mornings, the period from wake up including breakfast through the first meditation will be held in silence.


$150 covers lodging in the cottages, meals and miscellaneous expenses. To keep cost down we will share a dish-to-pass meal on Friday evening.  Following the Buddhist tradition, teachings are offered freely, the community in return supports the teachers. Donations will be accepted at the end of the retreat.  Suggested donation:$50-75.
