About Block Island & the Retreat
Change happens – so why not be intentional and invite it with ease
The sounds of our joyful cook, Marty in the kitchen as we practiced, got our appetites ready for a healthy breakfast. Then gathered on pillows by the crackling oversized hearth, we snuggled in for group process. The afternoons held time for island explorations, massages with Marty, labyrinth walks and quiet self reflection. The early evening yoga nidras put everyone into a state of deep relaxation and the chanting was purelydivine.
When silence was broken with a heavenly choir of voices singing Ong Namo, the joy and love in the air was palpable. Everyone effortlessly coordinated household duties with no words needed. It was like we were well-rehearsed actors dancing across the stage in a musical. I will also never forget the amazing dancing that erupted fireside on the last night as we celebrated our journey together. Bodies moving blissfully.

The essence of a retreat
We all need reflective time and space to feel balanced between work and play, and able to live what we know and desire in our lives. Retreats like this are dedicated to personal change, playfulness and deep self acceptance.
The Sign of the Dove is a serene retreat house overlooking a fresh water pond, just minutes from the quaint town and beautiful beaches on Block Island and late September is warm, perfect for hikes, bikes, horseback rides on the beach and the kind of silence that brings peace to our hearts.
