I had the opportunity to co-lead a Buddhist retreat at Still Waters this past weekend. We could not have found a better place for our retreat. The accommodations were wonderful. The grounds were beautiful, but most beautiful and important was the love we all felt from Amy and Tao. They really go beyond being good hosts. I could tell that they cared about what we were trying to achieve at our retreat. Two of the topics of our retreat were love and spiritual friendship. Learning how to love and develop spiritual friendships are very important life lessons. Tao and Amy are fine examples of both.
We had an amazing private retreat at Still Waters. Our time away as a couple was just what we needed to recharge our relationship. Quiet hikes in the woods, quiet breakfast served in candlelight, great conversations with the hosts, natural beauty of ponds and waterfalls. The list could go on. Definitely a return visit is in order! Quiet rooms · Thoughtful amenities · Romantic atmosphere
This is a great place to spend some time. It just has a very pleasant vibe and a great blend of peaceful nature experiences and a welcoming and supportive but non obtrusive atmosphere. It felt peaceful and quiet but also engaging which is a wonderful combination!

About me

My husband Tao and I are artists that own a retreat center in Voluntown, CT called Still Waters. My husband grew up here and the property is a place of healing, nestled in 100 acres of forest on a private, 12-acre pond. Still Waters is our life's work where we host small groups to gather and connect with each other and nature. We are personally and professionally committed to a healing path for ourselves and others.

We provide peaceful surroundings and artistic, rustic accommodations for groups. Simple and comfortable lodging includes two fully-furnished cottages, a newly renovated main house and an Art & Yoga Studio for workshops and classes. Our facilities for full catering include a large dining room and full kitchen, plus many outdoor spaces for gathering.

Still Waters is the place to unplug to enjoy peace among the pines. We're a close, comfortable and local escape from hectic, modern living.

As a person in long-term recovery from alcoholism, I feel blessed to connect with many souls on a healing path. It is a gift to be of service. I practice intermittent fasting as a lifestyle and have enjoyed daily 20-24 hour fasts since December 2016. Fasting is a wonderful gateway to health and is easy to practice.

I hold a BFA in Communication Arts from Long Island University/CW Post, a Master of Arts in Conscious Evolution from The Graduate Institute, and a certificate in Holistic Health Coaching from The Institute for Integrative Nutrition. I coach clients individually and help group leaders plan their holistic retreats. I also design and manage the monthly R&R retreats at Still Waters.

This year, I officially launched my book, Finding Still Waters: The Art of Conscious Recovery. As I reflect and absorb all the energy around publishing that book, I realize what a gift it is that I’m able to bring my creativity into the world. I want to encourage everyone to create. Let it rise up in your being and a release it into the world. Do not hesitate. Do not hold back. Life is short and you are a beautiful expression of the universe. Please don’t waste it.

The perfect place for a retreat of any kind- you are welcomed by love- the beauty of nature and professional yet very warm personable hosts Amy and Tao who make you feel like this place is your own. Maggie and Bebe (the family dogs) add to the joy of being there! We will be back!
