Exciting News: interactive community calendar and farm-stay retreats

Linked to our calendar page ( ) is a new, open community calendar. Not only will I list the ongoing classes and other events at Enlighten on it, but other relavent community events as well. Not only will I list events, but it's open for YOU TO POST relavent community events ON IT as well!
All are welcomed and encouraged to post uplifting, eco-friendly and family friendly events on it: farmers' markets, art/music events, village wide garage sales, festivals, and family events at local farms or historic sites. If you aren't sure, email to make sure that your event fits in. It probably does. I want us to be able to share important happenings in our area.

Follow the link from our calendar/schedule page. To post a one-time event, click right on that date. A box pops up- enter time, event + location and click save. For ongoing events, click on the little circle on the top right area of the square for the start date. Make sure to set if it is a monthly or weekly reoccuring event. You can set an end date, such as in the case of farmers' markets, for example.
If you wish to share information such as your favorite local park, trail, historic site, restaurant (for vegan dining), energy healers/massage therapists, museum or other local "something holistic" or "something fun to do" that doesn't really fit in on a calendar listing, please email that to the above address. I will be putting together a holistic/natural resource, both for locals and those coming to town for a visit.

We will be offering Summer retreats for locals and for those coming in for some r+r or a yoga immersion (especially those coming from Albany, Schenectady, NYC...).
We will offer one or two weekend retreats in June, July and August. They will be more for basic rest and relaxation. Then there will be one or two week long immersions offered in natural Yoga, aimed at integrating a Yogic/natural perspective in daily life.
We will be partnering with one or several local farms that will host our visitors/participants, providing rooms and delicious vegan meals with lots of local ingredients.
It is likely to be next Summer or the following which will begin this exciting experience, but we will be looking for farms to partner with right away, forming a strong relationship in the meantime. To suggest an organic/natural farm, email
