Stress Management & Mindfulness Retreat in Vermont

Mindfulness Retreat in Weston, Vermont

For those of you who have no stress in your lives, read no further. For those of you who have periods of stress or have stress on a daily basis, we have the answer. On the weekend of October 28th – 30th, we will be hosting a Stress Management and Mindfulness Retreat here at our peaceful Vermont bed and breakfast.

We will be able to identify our stressors and learn coping mechanisms to help us deal with life’s challenges. When guests visit the Inn, I always ask, “What brings you here?” 100% of the time, guests respond, “We just needed a getaway.” I always wonder, “away from what?” Kids? Parents? Job? Technology?  Finances? All of us need “downtime.” The purpose of this retreat is to enhance life skills we already have to help us feel better, reduce stress and enjoy our lives a little more. Where better to do this than the beautiful Green Mountains of Vermont this fall.

The weekend is being hosted by Timothy St. Onge. He and his wife Patricia are engaged in the private practice of psychotherapy and meditation studies with adults, individuals and couples, and older adolescents.
