Our leader – Rev. Dr. Holly C. Benzenhafer. Holly is Associate Pastor of Adult Spiritual Formation and Community Engagement at First Baptist Church in Needham, MA.

Yoga leader for Friday evening (cost of yoga not included here – that will be an additional 10-15 dollars which women can bring to the retreat) Meghan Walsh will lead us in yoga on Friday evening after dinner. Since finding yoga as a teen, Meghan continues to return to the practices of yoga to deepen her understanding of her self and other. While in class students can expect rhythmic vinyasa where movements link the breath to body thus creating an atmosphere that encourages students to drop into a meditative flow. Drawing from personal experiences both on and off the mat, Meghan creates unique classes sure to open the mind, body and spirit.
Cost: Double room (shared) – $175, Single room (private) – $230, Saturday only – $80; again, these costs include everything except Friday evening yoga
