About Windhorse Hill Retreat Center
Windhorse Hill Retreat Center
is a serene and private 18-acre retreat-like setting nestled on a hillside adjacent to 60 acres of protected conservation land. The retreat center is ten minutes from Greenfield and Old Deerfield, and just 25 minutes from Amherst, Brattleboro, and Northampton. There is ample parking at the top of the hill.
(COVID era: Retreats may be held online.)
Fall (September) Weeklong MTT300 Silent Mindfulness Retreat
The first retreat of the training focuses on deepening your personal mindfulness practice and connecting with your fellow classmates.
Concluding MTT300 May Training Retreat
The final retreat focuses on learning to teach mindfulness and building confidence as a mindfulness teacher.
Both retreats are seven days, six nights, including arrival and departure day.
Housing and travel fees are not included in your enrollment fee.
We book a block of rooms for a discount at the Red Roof Inn in Deerfield. Contact us for details. There is also a lot of Airbnb's nearby.
We are one hour north of Hartford, CT’s Bradley airport, two hours west of Boston’s Logan airport, and three hours north of NYC. We recommend you use Bradley and do NOT recommend Logan (since transportation from Boston to Deerfield is expensive the traffic is terrible).
We are ten minutes from the Amtrak station in Greenfield. The Vermonter train from NYC currently stops there once a day.
We post a rideshare/housing share board on the course site prior to each retreat so folks can connect with people to share rides and rooms.
