    Programming Highlights

    SPIRIT & SOUL

    ANCIENT ORACLES, MODERN MESSAGES

    For thousands of years human beings have developed and honed tools to glean divine wisdom. These ancient systems and oracles continue to serve as guides in the present moment, both practically (as strategic business planning tools) and spiritually. Beth demonstrates how they can impact modern living and teaches you how to use I-Ching for insight and personal empowerment. 80 MIN | $75

    HEALING SPLENDOR OF SOUND

    This meditation uses an ancient healing modality that helps alleviate the stressors of modern life through sound healing. Experience the gentle sounds and soothing effects of a symphony of antique Himalayan bowls, some of which are more than 300 years old. These harmonic tones, transfixing and profoundly relaxing, are proven to release tension and reset the nervous system. Emerge feeling calm, centered, and connected to your whole being. This 60-minute meditation, followed by a short discussion, requires no experience and can be practiced either lying down or seated. 80 MIN | $75

    PLANETARY BUZZ

    Unravel the mysteries of the planets to develop greater self-understanding while creating tools to enhance your daily life. Astrology is a vast and ancient system that can seem overwhelming. Jess Kielman helps you use it to elevate your health, discover compatibility with others (professionally and personally), identify personal strengths and weaknesses, and explore where in the world we may shine. 75 MIN | $45

    EXPLORING THE CHARKAS

    Peruse the seven chakras of your energy system. Learn how they affect your mind, emotions, body, and spirit. Gain clarity in how to balance each chakra to harmonize your whole being. 50 MIN

    CREATIVE EXPRESSION

    CRAFT YOUR OWN MALA

    Malas can offer a greater understanding and integration of conscious and subconscious thoughts, feelings, and experiences. Discover a new way to find meaning and perspective in the present moment and throughout your life. Create your own mala and bring its grounding and centering energy home. 120 MIN | $95

    HANDBUILDING WITH CLAY

    Handbuilding is a method of forming a vessel from pre-rolled clay slabs. Join this class to create a piece of art to share with others as you explore the concepts of giving and receiving. Upon completion, release your clay creation and relinquish ownership to a future guest, who will receive its nurturing benefits. In turn, you may choose a vessel, lovingly made by a previous guest, to take with you. Pay it forward in this community-oriented experience of interconnectedness, compassion, and creativity. 75 MIN | $75

    HIKING

    ICE GLEN HIKE

    Get ready to clamber over, under, and around giant boulders in a glacial ravine. The sides of the ravine are covered with old growth pine trees and majestic hemlock. Ice can be found in the ravine well into the summer months. This out-and-back hike is 1.6-miles of breath-taking terrain and is a wonderful adventure through Berkshire history. 105 MIN

Release your mind’s stress, tension, or worry while you “float” weightlessly in the air. May cause motion sickness. Please wear yoga attire. 45 MIN | $75

    EQUINE

    HERO’S JOURNEY

    The Hero’s Journey in narrative mythology is an archetypal story pattern in which a hero goes on an adventure, faces trials and temptation, grapples with a crisis, and undergoes a transformation in consciousness before returning home. Guided by our trained equine specialists, guests will walk horses through a series of obstacles that represent challenges and triumphs from their own lives. This exercise offers a way to reframe your experience in a narrative that casts you as the hero of your own journey. 110 MIN | $75

    HORSE SENSE

    Enter the inner world of Miraval’s equine herd. Learn about horses’ lives by exploring their interactions with people and with each other.

    NUTRITION

    MINDFUL HOLIDAY EATING

    Holiday cheer can inadvertently create holiday stress. Sometimes, we try to counteract this by using food as a coping mechanism. Learn to move away from reacting to holiday anxiety with unhealthy eating to responding with mindfulness meditation. Mindful eating is a practice that, over time, can improve your emotional relationship with food. Learn this transformative practice to shift your habits and heighten the joy of the holidays. 45 MIN

    MINDFUL LIFESTYLE TRANSFORMATION

    Making a shift to improve your eating, exercise more, or improve other lifestyle choices can be challenging. Transformation is the result of practice (not perfection). Adopting an experimental and resilient mindset is key. Learning to set intention, chanting mantras, and creating and using affirmations are three powerful tools for creating and sustaining lifestyle shifts. 80 MIN | $45

    HOLIDAY FOOD-MOOD CONNECTION

    The holidays can bring a range of emotions, from joy and celebration to sadness and stress. What and how you eat can profoundly impact how you handle anxiety, how you process emotions, and how you can advance your overall wellbeing. Learn about the foundations of mood-enhancing nutrition and mindful exercises for elevating mood through food from a nutritional psychiatry perspective. Learn techniques for staying present and creating meaningful holiday memories with your loved ones. 50 MIN
