A Half-Day, Science-Based, Meditation, Journaling, Lecture+Discussion Living Room Retreat with Dr. Amy to Give You a Health and Happiness Boost

Join us for a cozy Half-Day Retreat at Dr. Amy’s house! It’s a fun day of learning, meditation, camaraderie, and a delicious, homemade lunch from Chef Eric (plus a bonus “Stump the Chef” activity).


When: Saturday, November 11, 2023

Time: 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM

Where: Dr. Amy’s home in Bergen, New York

The Experience: You will arrive at 9:00 AM and fill your mug with tea or coffee. There will be a super cozy spot for you in the living room and you’ll settle in with your blanket and hot beverage. You get to sit back and relax as we go through a meditation, learn about cool, science-based health topics, laugh a bit, write in your journal or notebook, and then end with a delicious lunch by Chef Eric. During lunch, we will have a fun bonus…”Stump the Chef!” Look in your pantry and fridge and have a list of 3 ingredients and Chef Eric will give you off-the-cuff ideas of how you could utilize those ingredients in a healthy meal at home. You will also receive the recipes from our lunch.

Topics include: Longevity research, super foods, happiness, brain and nervous system health, meditation, healthy cooking tips

Fill your travel mug with coffee or tea upon arrival (but the cookies are for dessert!)

Watch the magic of Chef Eric making our beautiful, healthy lunch.

A cozy spot in the living room awaits you.

Who this retreat is for: All adults are welcome. This retreat is for anyone who wants to relax in a cozy setting with others and learn science-based health tips that can be put into use right away. You do not need any experience with meditation. The lunch will be healthy and plant forward (and you will get advice from Chef Eric as well as all the recipes). This retreat will be life affirming and fun! Sound good to you? Then, it’s for YOU!
