Connect with kindred spirits and your own natural rhythms through yoga, Ayurveda, meditation, song, herbal garden and woodland walks, and the teachings of our honored mentors. The heart of the retreats will be to explore and incorporate practices into our lives to nourish, love, and heal ourselves so we are more able to nurture, heal, and be of service to others (including Mother Earth). Nancy and our incredible guest teachers are sure to make each weekend nourishing, healing, and empowering.

Come renew your mind, rejuvenate your body, and feed your spirit with:

  • Relaxation techniques: meditation, yoga (beginners welcome)
  • Activities that connect and awaken us to Spirit and Nature
  • Nutritional and herbal support to promote energy, vitality and mental clarity.
  • Food and health practices that help us thrive and age gracefully.
  • Crafting with our hands
  • Delicious, vibrant food with cooking tips, recipes and demonstrations
  • Massage and spa treatments available
  • Prayer, song, drumming and laughter

Time to connect, relax, go deep, learn, share, grow and go home inspired, rejuvenated and radiant! After recharging our batteries we'll have more energy to be a force for good in this world of ours!

"May I be at peace. May my heart remain open. May I awaken to my own true nature. May I be healed. May I be a source of healing for all beings."

"If there's a person who embodies the essence of a community herbalist, it is Nancy Phillips. She's been one of our most popular teachers at Sage Mountain and has assisted me in my Herbal Apprentice Programs, the Science & Art of Herbology home study course, and at the New England Women's Herbal Conference and International Herb Symposium. Quite simply, I'm enthralled by her way of life, her beautiful gardens, her farm and family and encourage any one wishing a more in-depth knowledge of herbalism or seeking a more harmonious way of living to study with Nancy. You'll be delighted you did!"
