Individual Retreats

A Place to Get Away from the Hustle and Bustle of Daily Life

“When I go within in silence and consciously slow down my pace, I become open to learning important lessons about my life and my connection to spirit. On my visit to Neskaya this winter, I was met with deep compassionate support which welcomed my need for this type of silence, this type of relationship with the divine within. I was given the space I needed to meet these needs. The company of both Jenny and Kayla together with dancing and yoga made my time here balanced and fun. In my opinion, this embracing experience is definitely one that many more of us in life would benefit from. Thank you so much Kayla and Jenny for embracing me as you have in the way you did this week.”

Neskaya is located in the beautiful White Mountains of New Hampshire in the town of Franconia. If you are looking for a place to get away from the hustle and bustle of your daily life, spend some quiet, unstructed time in a beautiful rural setting, and perhaps join in any of the several activities offered at Neskaya or in the surrounding area, then consider coming to Neskaya for some individual retreat time.


Overnight accommodations are $10 a night. We have two lavatories, two showers, and six dormitory- style sleeping spaces with comfortable foam mattresses, bedding, pillows & towels. Food is not provided, but there is a grocery store just 5 minutes down the road, and cooking facilities are available. Kayla Dauphine, Caretaker/Program Director lives on site and the owner, Jenny Deupree, lives across the street, so there are opportunities for shared meals.


For circle dancers, available resources include the music collection, the library of step sheets, and the expertise of Jenny and Kayla. Several dancers have come and spent a day or two collecting dances to add to their collections.

People who aren’t circle dancers might enjoy perusing the Neskaya library, attending tai chi or yoga classes, participating in a dance circle, or exploring the area’s hiking trails, lakes, cross-country ski trails, Cannon Mountain Ski Area and other attractions.
