Last month in September the first signs of Autumn was upon us;
the temperature is dropping and the leaves are starting to change color and fall.
Last month we commemorated National Suicide Prevention Day on September 16th
in our blog, as well as World Peace Day on September 21st.
We hope that you and your loved ones have healthy hearts and minds during this time and are also enjoying the change of the seasons.
Last month recap:
Last month the EarthMind Wellness Center at Honor’s Haven hosted various retreats including every-weekend Catskills R&R Retreat and newly introduced Healing Spa Retreat.
Self Renewal Detox Retreat
September 16 to 20 (4 nights and 5 days)
We held the Self Renewal Detox Retreat on September 16 to 20 which allowed participants to purify and cleanse their body, mind, and spirit in a healthy way.
The following sharing was sent by Sarah Choi, who is in charge of the Self Renewal Detox Retreat:
This time two participants joined the retreat. One participant, who drove 6 hours from New Hampshire, was very tired at first, but after he got involved in the program he left very satisfied with the liver cleansing. The other guest who came from Manhattan was very excited throughout the program and was especially fascinated by the nature walk and meditation. I am positive that the two participants experienced a healthy way of life and detoxified their bodies, minds and spirits. I hope they will continue to keep this healthy way of life.
This time, I was especially grateful for Steve Kim, the Director of Development in Honor’s Haven, for giving us a lecture on “Healthy eating” which included topics on what to eat, when to eat, and how to eat. His vast knowledge of information and his simple ways of life always provide people with good influence and new inspiration.
Here is the sharing of one participant from this retreat:
“I was skeptical at first, but from the very first wellness class upon arrival, I was hooked.
I decided then that I would go all in, and I really have never felt so aligned with myself.
I’m very grateful for this retreat. I love it and the teachers were great.”
Future Self-Renewal Detox Retreats this year are
October 14-18, 2020
December 2-6, 2020
4 nights, 5 days
Thank You For Coming
Ahura Apothecary, a holistic health and wellness business, run by expert womb healer Genyii Scott, came to Honor’s Haven to host their own retreat with special guest Sun Seed, sound healer extraordinaire. They experienced deep transformation and healing through the various sound healing trainings by the lake and waterfall, as well self-reflection in nature, among others. They also invited trainer Jonathan Martinez, Manager of the Body & Brain Center in Westchester, NY, for morning Qigong, as well as Nicole Wasserman, Honor’s Haven trainer and Wellness Program Coordinator for Chakra Healing during one of the sound healing ceremonies. It was very special for both trainers and participants.

Honor’s Haven Moves forward to Sustainability
Honor’s Haven has a BIG dream for greener hospitality and sustainable development. One important step to the goal is implementing a facility-wide zero waste program, and we are very excited to announce that we will have a high-efficiency composting system delivered to Honor’s Haven in the first week of October. All food scraps from our kitchen and dining will go to this system and get decomposed to be used for developing the food forest and healing park. We will keep you posted!
THIS MONTH Retreats and Webinars:
Tai Chi is often described as meditation in motion.
“There is growing evidence that this mind-body practice, which originated in China as a martial art, has value in treating or preventing many health problems. You can do Tai Chi even if you are not in shape or in the best health.”
