Sep 01, 2014 03:36AM

Beginning this fall, the Copper Beech Institute in West Hartford will host a series of retreats that offer the opportunity to step back from the pace of life for a weekend of rest and renewal. The first R&R retreat is offered over the weekend beginning September 12. 

Scheduled to coincide with the institute’s structured retreat programs, the R&R retreats allow participants to create their own experience, choosing from daily activities that include morning and afternoon yoga classes, mindfulness meditation practice, experiential workshops with R&R faculty, and Saturday evening musical events. Participants may also partake of the many amenities that come standard with a stay at the Copper Beech Institute, including farm-to-table food, 48 acres of wooded grounds, a stone labyrinth and the Golden Thread Art Gallery. Healing art therapies including massage and reflexology are available for an additional charge.

Guests are welcome to come solo, with a friend, or as part of a group. Accommodations include private rooms with queen beds and a shared or private bath. Shared rooms are also available by request. R&R retreats dates for the 2014 season are as follows: September 12-14 and 19-21, October 3-5 and 17-19, November 14-16 and December 5-7. The dates for 2015 can be found on Copper Beech Institute’s website.
