Join us at Dr Weiss’ Mindful Living Retreat at Menla Retreat and Dewa Spa in Phoenicia, New York for an exceptional experience celebrating all our hard work and collective successes as we learn to embrace a mindful and healthier lifestyle utilizing whole plant-based foods.You will immerse yourself in each of the 7 pillars of healthy living and walk away with lasting benefits that will leave you inspired to continue your path to a mindful living journey.
  1. Nutrition: Enjoy the satisfaction and nourishment of a whole food plant-based diet prepared by Menla’s talented chef. Learn some of her culinary secrets to making healthy flavorful meals without added salt, oil, or sugar.
  2. Avoiding Risky Substances: You don’t need to fall into the pleasure trap of addictive substances to stimulate your senses and nourish your soul.
  3. Fitness: Enjoy the physical rigor of hiking nearby trails while enjoying fall’s colorful beauty in the majestic setting of the Catskill mountains. Feel your heart pumping with joy as you support your cardiovascular health.
  4. Connection to the Natural World: Feel nurtured by nature in Menla’s breathtaking surroundings. Experience the physical and emotional benefits of our essential connection with our physical environment.
  5. Mindfulness and Stress Management: Enjoy guided mindfulness sessions that will feed your soul and ease your mind. Walk away energized and refreshed to take on the challenges of daily life.
  6. Social Connection: Enjoy the company of fellow Ethosians. Make meaningful connections with like-minded others, be inspired by personal stories and health journeys, and create bonds that will have lasting benefits.
  7. Restful Sleep: Feel refreshed and energized. It all comes together as you follow a healthy circadian rhythm from morning to night, from your first meal to your last, from your first gaze at the morning sunlight to the last as you watch the sun set behind the mountains. You will fall into restful sleep in Menla’s comfortable accommodations after a day of stimulating and meaningful interactions.
At Menla, you will be so awestruck at the stunning fall colors while you leaf-peep. Test your new strength and stamina—you won’t even notice the hard work of conquering the Metta Trail, the Overlook Mountain Trail, or the Ashokan Rail Trail along the beautiful Ashokan Reservoir!
