Mindfulness at Mohonk Mountain House

Mindfulness at Mohonk Mountain House Meditation Retreat in New York

Just 90 Miles North of New York City

Mindfulness at Mohonk Mountain House offers simple techniques which invite you to reduce stress and enhance well-being. Based on the popular book The Three Minute Meditator, co-authored by David Harp, M.A. and Dr. Nina Smiley, these techniques help you learn to work more skillfully with thoughts, events, and emotions—anywhere and anytime. As Prevention magazine describes The Three Minute Meditator, "the road to inner peace just got shorter." Consider a meditation retreat in New York, just 90 minutes north of the city where you can enjoy a spectacular natural setting while you learn mindfulness techniques that can change your life.

Mindfulness at Mohonk: Mindfulness and Wellness Programs to Change Your Life

Through her own personal experience and academic qualifications, including a Ph.D. in Psychology from Princeton University, Nina Smiley has created and curated a series of mindfulness workshops including Mindfulness in Minutes! and Diabetes Wellness Weekend, offered throughout the year.

Stay Younger as You Live Longer with Breath-Body-Mind is led by internationally recognized leaders, Dr. Richard Brown and Dr. Patricia Gerbarg. The Ancient Art of Nature Awareness features Mohonk's naturalist, Michael Ridolfo in an outdoor program that will awaken your senses.

Our 146-year-old Victorian castle resort in the heart of the Hudson Valley rests beside a glacially-formed lake surrounded by thousands of acres of pristine wilderness. In winter, discover our open-air ice-skating Pavilion and 35 miles of groomed trails for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing (weather permitting). Many of these exciting activities are included in your overnight rate, as are delicious meals.
