Chakra Bracelet Workshop

Join with the Darshana community and make your very own Sacred Chakra Bracelet made from semi precious stones.  Everyone who stays the weekend will get to take one home with them. 


The theme of this renewal retreat weekend is to cultivate mindfulness in every step. All of the practices given are to cultivate one pointed focus of the mind, allowing for more clarity, peace and happiness.

Tarrot Cards

An intuitive tarot reading is a way to gain clarity, shift energies and expand possibilities. By connecting with angels and guides surrounding us, Barbara will channel the information needed to bring balance, peace and direction to your life.

Vegetarian Meals

Camp DeWolfe always serves the most delicious vegetarian meals for our retreats and all of the staff members are so friendly and inviting. During meal periods, held in the Davis Hall, all conversation should be positive, uplifting and enjoyable for everyone.

Beginners Yoga Bliss

In this gentle morning class, participants will be guided in postures and movements to help strengthen the body and mind. The emphasis will be on cultivating mindfulness in each pose while enjoying the moment. Regardless of age, size or limitations, yoga can be experienced and enjoyed fully by all.

Gentle Morning Yoga

Step into your bliss and personal power during this transformative yoga flow. Experience the profound effects of gentle yoga postures mixed with movement and focused breathing. This special class will give a good foundation and support to walk through life with grace & ease.

Yoga Dance

Connect with your inner rhythm and move the body and breath for fun and healing to the body, mind & spirit. This inspirational dance of yoga is for everybody, for all ages. Get ready to become your most passionate, powerful, joyous, and authentic self!

Mindful Movement

Experience the fullness of the present moment through various practices of sitting and walking meditation.


Experience an investigative inner journey that takes the practitioner beyond limiting beliefs and conditioning, so that a contented life, free of conflict, anxiety, fear, dissatisfaction, and suffering can be lived. In its ultimate form, Meditation is used to unravel the sacred mystery of life and reveal the secret of enlightenment.

Sunrise Yoga

Rise and shine with intention and gratitude as Lori guides you through morning sun salutations to honor the sacredness of the life. This is a very auspicious time of day and inner stillness is more easily available. The class ends with essential oils, reiki and meditation.

Reiki Circle

Reiki can be received either lying down or in a comfortable seated position. The teacher places their hands gently on or above the body (based on recipient preference) and moves them in a specific sequence along the body starting with head. Each hand position can be held for several minutes. Many people feel deep relaxation, peace, warmth, tingling sensations, radiant energy and emotional release.

Spiritual Teachings

Spiritual seekers wishing to listen, speak and assimilate truth are welcomed to Satsang. If you have an inner itch for something that cannot be scratched, then it most likely is your Inner Soul calling. Regina will be drawing from her 30 years plus of inner spiritual experience to reveal some of the ancient teachings of yoga and how they can be used to live a peaceful and happy life.

Fire Ceremony

During this special fire ceremony for purification, everyone will have an opportunity to share something with the group as well as throwing their paper of what they wish to release into the fire. This gathering of yogis has been a very memorable experience in past retreats. A spiritual message will also be given.

Sunrise & Sunset

Sunset Contemplation: Camp DeWolfe is located right on the Long Island sound. The sunrise and sunset views are stunning. We will gather for sunset on Saturday night to enjoy the healing power of the elements.

Spring Renewal Yoga

Set an intention for health, healing and vibrant wellbeing. This class will focus on stretching and releasing old patterns of tension in the body so that renewed energy can come in. Stretch, breath, focus, reflect and pure being.
