Eastover Estate and Retreat
EASTOVER ESTATE & RETREAT is a residential holistic retreat center, dedicated to serving the greater holistic community, for the last 5 years it has been undergoing a complete renovation and is emerging as a facilitator of holistic workshops and retreats. Centered around an evocative Berkshire Summer Cottage with sun trenched café, juice bar, library, meeting rooms, porch, terrace, luxury bedrooms, Eastover is centrally located in the cultural hub of the Berkshires, and only minutes from Tanglewood, Kriplau, Shakespeare & Co. and dozens of other cultural venues, Eastover is an ideal location for teachers, groups, organizations and companies seeking retreat and training. Eastover offers spacious characteristic and historical workshop and program rooms with multiple meeting and studio facilities including well-equipped commercial kitchens ideal for all styles of cooking classes. There is a wide range of limited overnight accommodations preserving its intimacy to fit everyone’s budget, from rustic, to contemporary, to luxurious.
600 Acres of silence cradled by Houstonic River and October Mountain, Eastover is a mix of inviting lawns, courtyards, meadows, gardens, forests, woodland trails, and panoramic views of the Mt Greylock, the site creates a sense of expansiveness and a feeling of serenity where people can meet outside the bustle of everyday life. Eastover is unaffiliated with any specific spiritual tradition. Its eclectic open-hearted receptivity to a broad array of groups and teachers aims to support the continuing emergence of holistic and ecological ideas capable of renewing our culture and leading the way to a sustainable planet.

Are you ready to jettison the inertia, clutter and confusion, and create more meals you are proud of? Join me and learn how to create beautiful, vibrant and delicious morsels that lead to greater satiation, flourishing health, and a lustrous glow.
Through a combination of lectures, Q&A sessions and cooking together, we will evolve and refine your personal best vibrant diet. We will discuss and explore a ‘Real Food’ philosophy, cultivating joy in your kitchen, listening more deeply to what your body is craving, and obliterating confusion, rigidity or emotional binging that is getting in the way of your capacity to thrive.
This course is best suited for omnivores, but we will have vegetarian options available. I am also happy to cater the recipes to those with food intolerances and allergies.
Food is what fuels our hearts and minds to aspire, inspire, achieve, and fulfill our indispensable roles in life. It’s important to think more deeply about what is fueling the machine, and to know what works best over the long term.
