Dear Friend,

Thanks for stopping by!

ClearPoint offers enrichment programs that are grounded in Holistic Health, Art and Nature. We’re excited to be offering some new programs for 2013. Make sure to check out our events page.

ClearPoint is surrounded by tall pines, abundant natural beauty and located in a quaint New England Village with easy access from major interstates.

It's called a Yurt!



In 2010 we installed a Yurt on the property. The Yurt represents simple living and a sacred circle where all sides are even. It is a quiet space for meditation, body work and an intimate space for workshops.


We share an integrative approach that embraces nourishing foods that are lovingly prepared, nutritional science, the power of grounding and energy medicine.

Please sign up for our monthly newsletter that lists our events and musings.

We hope to see you soon!

Clearly yours,

Steve, Shannon and Leo

Pain As a Way of Knowing

This is a meditation by Richard Rohr that I always want to remember. Suffering is the necessary deep feeling of the human situation. If we don’t feel pain, suffering, human failure and weakness, we stand antiseptically apart from it, and remain numb and small. We can’t fully understand such things by thinking about them. The…

Earth Prayers Fire Ceremony.
