I hold workshops all over the country, but always look forward to coming to Deer Park. The natural setting really sets the mood of the entire experience.
Words cannot describe the beauty, the peace, the good spirit of this place. We felt it as soon as we arrived. We felt it even stronger when it came time to leave.
Thank you for making our wedding absolutely perfect. We look at our pictures and can’t believe this dream came true.
We hold three retreats every year, all of them at Deer Park. For over twenty years, Deer Park has been our spiritual home in the woods.
