Wisdom House

Wisdom House in Litchfield is an interfaith retreat and conference center set on 54 acres of meadows and woodland. The indoor and outdoor sanctuary areas and labyrinth encourage meditation, prayer and creative thinking. Throughout the year, there are scheduled programs, writer/artist retreats and ongoing programs. Personal retreats can also be arranged.


Yoga & Fitness (Charym)

There is a simple, restful elegance to Charym, where you can sign up for classes such as Power Vinyasa, Charym Gentle & Restorative Yoga Flow, Core Essentials or Sunday Kundalini – all seeking that elusive union of mind, body and spirit. Maybe you’ll find it in this gorgeous setting.


White Memorial Foundation

Outdoor Cathedral

Ultimately, there is perhaps no greater peace that the one you can find outdoors in pristine conditions. The White Memorial Foundation is Connecticut’s largest nature center and wildlife sanctuary, and it’s calling out for you to make some corner of it your own. There are 4,000 acres here, with 35 miles of trails and many seasonal outdoor activities. Check out the workshops and special programs.


And a Bite to Eat

Does inner peace include making your stomach happy? If it does, make your way to Litchfield’s Dutch Epicure Shop Bakery, purveyor of baked goods, hand-made chocolates, cheeses and other delights since 1967. Those in the know recommend the almond macaroons, cherry stars and chocolate ginger shortbread.
