Eastover Estate and Retreat, the 600-acre sanctuary and holistic retreat center in the cultural hub of the Berkshires, opened only recently, but it is quickly attracting participants to its various organized retreats as well as individuals who simply want to rest in its peaceful environment, says founder Yingxing Wang.
Upcoming retreats include “Esoteric QiGong and Group Healing” (September 11-13) with qigong master Robert Peng; and “Digesting the Dance of Life” (October 23-25) with licensed nutritionist Kathie Swift and registered yoga instructor Megha Buttenheim.
“Relax & Rejuvenate” guests can enjoy a wealth of activities (which are also included in the retreat package) such as yoga, Chinese brush painting and calligraphy, swimming, hiking, qigong and meditation. “Our accommodations are simple yet comfortable, whether they are located in the mansion or our lodging buildings,” Wang says. “Our mansion serves as a tranquil space to enjoy a glass of wine on the terrace, read a book in the library or sip a satisfying cup of tea. At Eastover, you can step away from the stresses of your life and reencounter serenity within your mind and body.”
