3 Day Silent Meditation and Sutra Study Retreat


October 17 - 20 at Pumpkin Hollow Retreat Center, Craryville, NY. Silence and stillness bring us back home to the parts of self which are already whole, healthy, natural and wise. Study, contemplation and inquiry lead us to new understanding and true transformation.

The day is framed by 4 silent meditation sessions. Daily yoga class and study session, where we will dive into the wisdom of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. There is powerful and resonant medicine for the modern spiritual practitioner in this ancient text to be revealed by Aaron’s unorthodox but deeply researched approach.

More photos and itinerary will be posted here by August 20.

Reach out to Aaron if you want to hop on the phone and discuss if this retreat is write for you. aaron@forevermarvel.com

Final payment due September 15, 2019. Up until then your deposit is fully refundable. After that I will ask you to help find a replacement for your spot.

when we are not in a practice session you are free to roam the 130 beautiful acres of Pumpkin Hollow

Sutra Study is a time when I’ll offer short talks connecting the wisdom from Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra to the practices that we’re engaging in throughout the day


The 12pm "Day Stillness" will be guided by Aaron. All other meditations will be held in silence.


Free Movement is a time when you can come and do a self-guided movement practice in the company of Aaron and other retreat participants. You are also welcome to use that time to do your journaling or artistic practice in the shared space (“movement” of your hands and your creative energy) or simply go off on your own adventure.


Group Inquiry is a time where Aaron will address your write-in questions or comments. If you want something addressed in that evening’s Group Inquiry, you must submit your written request by the 4pm “Sunset Stillness” session.
