This is an introduction to contemplative self-care led by Dr. Jacobson. It is a mostly silent retreat that includes meditation, yoga, nature hikes, and chanting. There is time for light conversation during our group activities. Evenings are a time of silence and self-reflection. There is no internet access at the Hermitage. You experience a complete digital detox as you reconnect with the biorhythms of nature and relax with simple harmonies of breath and movement.
Dr. Jacobson focuses on the teachings of integrative medicine, yoga, Ayurvedic wellness, and Centering Prayer (a type of meditation). Attendees are invited to attend the Hermitage Prayer of the Hours and evening meditation with the monks; however, this is not required. Personal mind-body-spirit sessions with Dr. Jacobson are available during the retreat for an additional fee.
