The OQ Farm, Woodstock, VT

About The Event


This retreat will be held at the luxurious private retreat space, The OQ Farm, in Woodstock, Vermont. It's located in the beautiful Green Mountains,  a scenic five hour drive from NYC. For those of you familiar with Brattleboro, Vermont from our recent retreat, the drive takes you straight through Brattleboro (in case you want to stop for lunch at one of our favorite spots).


The intention for this retreat is "Finding Interal Peace." We could not think of a more perfect place to do this than the OQ Farm. Our practices and healing journeys will take place in the farm's dedicated sacred space: The Chapel. This beautiful, light filled interior has picture windows so we can gaze out on the beautiful viridescent lawn and the tall leafy trees that surround  this divine space. As the location is nestled in Vermont's Green Mountains, we will be surrounded by nature vibrating the same color as our heart chakras. When designing the programming for this retreat, we meditated on the  fact that for those of us that don't feel inner peace, it's almost  always our emotions that are pulling us away from it. The truth is, even  if we are in the midst of a scintillating new love affair or having a blissful day with our children, these emotions consume our thoughts and  often cause us to make sacrifices that are not in our best interest.  Because the one thing this world can guarantee us is change, we also  spend a lot of energy, even in the best of times, worrying about what  will happen when the situation changes, which we "know in our hearts"  that it will.   Having a heart chakra that is clear and spinning strongly enables us to  connect with universal true love. This is the love that is always  shining through, helping us to connect with all beings. Since our  meditation on this retreat's programming showed us that we need this  retreat to focus on our heart chakras, we are doing two activities that  we haven't done in past retreats:

 Chakra Mapping 

In this very special activity, Nicole will take the group into a full  chakra balancing program that focuses on the heart. Taking a full chakra  approach is very important to clearing and opening our heart chakras.  First, because we must be grounded and feel strong before we have the  courage to open our heart chakras. Second, because it's via our upper  chakras that we start to connect with the divine. Since the divine is  pure love, we can't begin to open our higher chakras until our heart  chakras are open. And third, because of the role that the heart chakra  plays within our entire energetic systems: the heart chakra, in essence,  balances the lower chakras and upper chakras.

Prana Vida 

Prana Vida is a wonderful practice in which the healer (Nicole) offers  clients methods of exploring the internal prana in the body and focuses  on channeling energy properly between all chakras via the nadis. In  effect, we are encouraging proper flow of energy, which in essence  creates acceptance, balance and overall health.
