Brooklyn: 2-Day Choose Happiness Retreat

  • Clinton Hill Brooklyn, NY (map)


Our one-of-a-kind setting will be in the Clinton Hill neighborhood of Brooklyn. We will gather in a luxury, award winning landmark Carriage House that has been restored and featured in Elle Decor and New York Magazine. It is open and chapel like (2,400 sq. ft.) and retains many of the original elements of the old carriage house: a peculiar row of high windows for horses’ heads, open-beamed ceiling, stable doors that open to the street, original exterior bricks repurposed to the interior, a 13’ central table milled from one of the stable’s original beams. It all feels modern but very cozy!


-  All Workshops & Activities on July 2 & 3 (Thurs. & Fri.), 9:00 am - 5:00 pm each day.
-  Raw/Organic Green Juice by Tiny Empire (of Williamsburg).
-  A healthy market vegetable lunch catered by Stone Fruit (owned by one of our amazing Brooklyn readers in Clinton Hill!) - featuring farm-to-table, local, seasonal, nutrient-dense, delicious food. A second healthy lunch by Poppy’s Catering (of Carroll Gardens) featuring seasonal ingredients from local purveyors.
-  Afternoon baked goods and “exceptional, sustainable espresso” provided by Stone Fruit and additional baked goods provided the following day by Clementine Vegan Bakery (of Bed Stuy).
-  We'll have our very own in-house artisan bread baker, Sarah Owens of BK17 Bakery, using exotic flours and preparing specialty breads on the spot one morning (her breads are made with a unique fermentation process that makes it more suitable for gluten intolerance.)  
-  A Love Tote Bag designed by Linsey Laidlaw, containing a few of my favorite things (including some natural beauty products, of course!) A HUGE thanks so far to: Simpalee (artisan handmade bath products), Colby Sanford (he's drawing a custom print for the event!), Acure Organics, Udi's, and Glutino.
