Wellness Retreat Brings Calm to a Crazy World


Many think the world has become a very violent place. In reality, there is less violence today than at any point in recorded history, although we believe differently because of ceaseless news of war, crime and terrorism. Because we are bombarded everywhere we turn with negative breaking news, it is increasingly common to feel overwhelmed, anxious and even fearful.

Taking a hiatus from regular life in the form of a vacation or retreat is hugely beneficial. In doing so, we can remove ourselves from our normal environment where we may be tempted to stay plugged into the internet, work on projects, or do household chores. Visiting an ashram is a perfect way to experience a peaceful, tranquil and serene escape.

On the weekend of October 20-22, join Journey of Yoga’s Autumn Retreat to the Himalayan Institute to practice yoga, learn how to meditate, eat delicious Ayurvedic meals, relax at a bonfire and hang out with like-minded yogis. This beautiful facility is located on 400 acres of rolling hills and lush forest in Honesdale, PA.

The retreat price is $335 (plus accommodations and meals), with an early bird rate of $285 if you register by 9/20. For more information, visit or call 860-680-1482. Himalayan Institute location: 952 Bethany Turnpike, Honesdale, PA.
