Unconditional Healing: A New Model of Health For Difficult Times (Hudson Valley Retreat)

May 31 @ 8:00 pm - June 2 @ 11:30 am


Join this early summer weekend retreat in the Hudson Valley, which draws on meditation practice, the Alexander Technique, and group reflection, discussion and support. 

In this workshop, we will learn:

  • A more expansive view of health that transforms our relationship to pain and discomfort.
  • A time-honored meditation practice that instills peace and fosters insight.
  • How our body was designed to be supported with ease.
  • How to reduce suffering when facing difficult or intractable situations.
  • A practice that strengthens loving-kindness toward ourselves in daily life.

Feel At Home In Your Body.

This retreat models a view of health that is so much more than curing the physical challenges we encounter. Genuine health also includes our mental, emotional and spiritual well-being as well. If we ignore those aspects of our life, we limit ourselves to a constrained, conditional notion of health that offers no opportunity for growth, transformation or self-compassion.


Jeff Rubin is a senior Buddhist teacher, and has directed meditation-related workshops for over 30 years. After contracting a progressive degenerative illness, Jeff began the study and practice of teachings that view illness and adversity as a stepping-stone to spiritual growth, wholeness, and unconditional well-being. He has been directing programs on Unconditional Healing since 2006.

Dan Cayer is a certified Alexander Technique and meditation teacher who is committed to helping others change habitual patterns, find freedom from pain, and create a sane relationship with their body. After a serious injury left Dan unable to work or take care of himself, he attended the very first Unconditional Healing workshop in 2006, and shortly thereafter, began studying the Alexander Technique.  His return to health, as well as his deep experience with the physical, mental, and emotional aspects of pain, inspired him to help others.
