We have held our Mindfulness Meditation retreats in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh at Nurture Through Nature several times over the years. NTN is a very nourishing, environmentally friendly, beautiful, quiet place to have a retreat! We have used yurts, cabins, & camping – all wonderful! The upstairs Meditation/Yoga Hall has fit very well for our Sitting Meditation, Dharma Talks, Dharma Sharing, and other gatherings. The downstairs fit well for our community meals. The paths for Walking Meditation are gentle and calming. Jen has been a very gracious, flexible, and supportive host. We will be back!
We and participants love you and your magical spot off the grid! Thank you for providing us with this amazing opportunity. What a weekend we all had, thank you so very much!! Your energy is incredible, and we all loved your class on Saturday morning! We would love to come back in the Fall.
We had the most incredible retreat at our Mountain Brook Yurt. When we arrived the yurt was clean and ready with jugs of water on hand. The property the yurt is located on is simply quite magical. I would even compare it to an enchanted forest. We had a great time walking on the hiking trails and exploring the mountain brook. We also made use of the wood fired cedar sauna that is on the property, which was truly an experience like no other, and I definitely recommend it. The yurt was indeed very private and exactly what we were looking for on this trip. We will definitely be heading back, perhaps next time in the winter to do some snowshoeing.
The magic, intention and respect of the earth is palpable and deeply felt here. Thank you for sharing and holding space here for life in all of it’s expressions. Beauty, darkness, music, love, fear as we are held by the natural world unfolding all around us. Fall is falling in all of its colorful splendor~reds, yellow, greens, browns…we are so filled with gratitude for just this.
Saturday evening, sipping French wine from a mason jar, listening to the brook as it meanders by, the fire in the wood stove warms my heart. Eckhart Tolle’s wisdom nourishes my soul. For all this~I am blessed! Thank you for sharing this luscious space with us! I will surely be back. Peace, Love and Light.
AMAZING! Beautiful! Peaceful! My boyfriend and I can not stop talking about how amazing our experience was staying in the sunset yurt. The yurt provided us with everything we needed and loved how private it felt. We loved being surrounded by the woods, literally a couple steps away from a trail that lead to the most beautiful mossy waterfall and pools we have been seen. It truly was magical and inspiring. We LOVED the sauna and meditation islands alongside the meditation trail. We feel so grateful to have found this special one of a kind retreat. Thank you Jen!!
This place has created bliss, balance, and clarity that I have not experienced in a long while.
Such an amazing space. A weekend is much too short, but it was a fantastic introduction to living comfortably in nature. The proximity to the sounds of the brook, the sights of the trees and leaves around and above, the feel of the cozy timelessness…wonderful memories I will take down from this hill with me. Many thanks!!!
What a perfect getaway from city life! My only wish is that I had been able to stay a bit longer. The eco-cabin is exactly as described – perfectly nestled in the Maine woods with nothing but nature everywhere you look. I had everything I needed while also pushing myself to become more aware of the things I take for granted in every-day life such as electricity and water. Super impressed with the solar power setup and truly feeling off the grid.
Myself and two friends stayed two nights at Robins Nest. The cabin and surrounding area is exactly as described. Jaws opened in awe once we opened that cabin door- it was truly a beautiful nature retreat. Jen was friendly, attentive, and responsive. We enjoyed yoga, hiking, dipping in the swimming holes, the sauna, fire pit…and most of all- beautiful silence; an oasis to smile without saying a word, hug the ones you love and just exist with them, close your eyes while the fresh air penetrates your bones, and purge yourself of any worries or stress. A sincere thank you for what you have created here…we will certainly return.
