Restorative Autumn Retreats in Vermont’s Green Mountains




Enjoy delicious farm-to-table meals, morning stretching and meditation classes, hatha yoga classes, hikes, healthy food prep demonstrations and the latest in self-care techniques on a four-day and -night retreat, September 14 to 18 or September 21 to 25, at Fox Meadow Retreat, in Wilmington, Vermont.

Host Meredith Musick, an avid healing artist for more than 25 years, says the retreats are designed for individuals to get away from daily distractions and to allow nature to assist in changing their bodies as the seasons do. “By getting back to the land—to nature’s loving arms—and through the power of community, healthy, organic meals, self-care and a reprieve from the fray, this retreat is uniquely designed to enhance physical, emotional and spiritual health,” maintains Musick.

While individuals are more connected through WiFi than ever before, many are also less connected to nature. “Our Earth is a precious and powerful being, capable of transforming frequencies and helping us to restore our natural rhythms,” Musick says.

“This retreat is just the place to take a moment for yourself.” Retreat goers can be as active or relaxed, as social or as private as they wish. While “unplugging” is encouraged, Fox Meadow Retreat does have internet, WiFi and cell phone service. Retreat groups are small, so early booking is advised.

Fox Meadow is also available to outside groups wishing to host their own events. This southern Vermont location is ideally suited for skiers and hikers, leaf watchers and anyone looking to recreate in the Green Mountains.


Cost: $995.50 (double occupancy) early bird; $1095 after August 15. Location: 41 Bossert Rd., Wilmington, VT. For more information, call 239-269-8846 or visit FoxMeadowRetreat.com.
