Freshly prepared meals with local and organic ingredients, 95 acres of wooded and pastoral beauty, and a retreat facility built with green in mind: these are Spirit Fire's Meditative Retreat Center in Leyden, Massachusetts.
Spirit Fire Retreat Center is a remarkable place. Upon entering, the mindful attention to aesthetics, care and hospitality is quite tangible. The quality of the physical center, and the landscape around it, is nurturing, appealing, and harmonious in its appearance. The food and caring service provided by its staff is among the best we have experienced in over 35 years of attending or providing trainings, in many centers in the region, and around the world. The beauty of the actual teaching space adds to the dynamic of the teaching process. I highly recommend this precious place if you are considering an individual or group retreat.

the land says it all...
You can feel the sacredness of the 95 acres of forest, meadow, and ridge-surrounded valley. A trail system winds through the woods, over three small streams, beside a secluded meadow and back to our center, lawn and gardens.
Spirit Fire is a perfect match for groups who relate to the land and its spirits; to nature and her beauty.
Night skies reveal magnificent stars and constellations; the fire circle creates powerful bonds; and magical moments in the great outdoors provide lasting memories for all who visit.
local, organic, and as nature intended...
Spirit Fire is committed to a healthy world and a healthy you. We serve as much seasonal, organic produce as possible. If we don't grow it in our own gardens, we gather it from local farms and cooperatives. Omnivores will find meats and fish purchased with an intention to avoid chemicals, antibiotics, GMO feed, and inhuman handling.
Healthy food means a healthy body, a healthy mind, and a healthy spirit. Our meals are prepared with a big heart and served with a big smile.
We are conveniently located on the eastern edge of the Berkshires, just outside of Greenfield, MA. There is enough distance between your city and Spirit Fire to let your group experience the renewal of nature while still providing easy access. Spirit Fire Retreat Center is a 2 hour drive west of Boston and a 4 hour drive north of New York City. For additional information on how to find us via car, bus, or train select the link below.
