Next Event: 

May 13th-15th at the Dragonfly Yoga Barn in Sandwich, NH


Come decompress your mind in a beautiful environment with farm-to-table food, supportive community, and daily meditation, in a beautifully renovated meditation barn.

The theme of the retreat this spring is, Nurture.

What does it mean to make space in our mind, body and heart for new relationships, opportunities, and creative ideas to come into our lives and take root? How can we best nurture these little seedlings until they are fully grown? We'll be exploring all of this in our upcoming retreat. We will have space for 15 people in this intimate retreat setting. When you are not meditating, you'll get to partake in meaningful group dharma circles, yoga class, nature walks, delicious food, and relax and find your center in nature.

William Jackson Psy.D. While meditating as a monk in remote jungle huts for 12 to 14 hours a day, William developed a fascination with how people living fully engaged modern lives could experience the life-changing benefits of meditation. This calling led him to leave the monastery, study psychology, and develop the SkillfulMeans approach to clarifying and pursuing your personal well-being.
