The Assemblage Sanctuary at Bethel Woods

About This Center

The Assemblage Sanctuary in Bethel, NY (just a two hour drive from New York City), was inspired by their belief in biophilia: a hypothesis that human beings possess an innate tendency to seek connections with nature and other living systems. The property located across 150 acres of diverse landscapes is a magnetic space to slow down, connect with nature, and exchange ideas around consciousness, food and culture.

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
