hudsonvalleyone.com Sunday, June 2: “When I study and draw from nature, I feel a presence of something that never fails to take my breath away. I ‘undress’ the plant to study the mystery within, exploring plants and flowers on a micro level, almost the way an insect does.”

Solstice prayer
We welcome the solstice with a renewed commitment

To care for and hold in our hearts Mother Earth and her vest communities of life

To pray for the awakening of the human heart

So that we can see all people as our own

To open our eyes so that we can know the sacred in all

And live every day and gratitude for what has been given

So be it and help us to do our part

General information

Lifebridge Sanctuary is a retreat center made available for residential groups of up to 30. The groups who use the facility are mostly not-for-profit groups who come primarily to deepen their own mission through contemplative and working retreats. Largely service oriented, the missions of the groups using the Sanctuary are aligned with the foundation's. Lifebridge is an NGO associated with the Department of Public Information of the United Nations, and in this capacity develops various projects in support of the mission of the UN. The Sanctuary has embarked on a comprehensive permaculture design plan for its 95 acre property. This design features over 200 species of useful and edible plants, potential for multiple cottage industries, and viable food-producing agricultural enterprises. The design has many different areas of productivity: small herbal and medicinal gardens, large vegetable production areas, fruit orchards, kiwi and grape vineyards, food forests, nut groves, chestnut re-forestation, wildlife habitat restoration. The design integrates all of these landscape elements with the internal regenerative development of human beings.
