About this trip

Does the mental chaos of our current world have your mind in a spin? Is it hard to find space within and feel your connection to a larger global and universal picture?

We invite you to experience some Peace and Quiet… The answers you seek are in Nature. The answers you hold are in Silence. Great masters and teachers have been sharing the benefits of a silent mind for centuries. Our daily struggles and suffering is directly linked to our feelings of separation from the whole. That separation is an illusion of the mind. When the mind is quiet we settle into our heart center where all is connected in ONENESS and we finally enter ADVAITA.


At Raven Crest, our mission is to provide a beautiful, pristine home in Nature for all those who are hungry for reconnection. We will begin our 2018 retreat season with an invitation into your own peace of mind.


Enjoy our 300 acre property, get a silent abhyanga massage, enjoy vegetarian ayurvedic meals, group meditations and dharma talks and most importantly…enjoy your SELF in oneness with the Natural world. Silence is the greatest teacher and heart connector. Where there are no words, the truth awaits you.

From seed to fruition, all aspects of the experience were imbued with love, thoughtfulness, nurturance, and care. Thank you to everyone at Ravencrest!
This was an amazing retreat. Maryn and Mia were fabulous luminaries, creating a safe nurturing environment for growth and exploration. The property was majestic, all of the people on staff are easily approachable, knowledgeable, and wiling to help. The food was fresh, healthy and delicious.

Maryn and Mia provided a wonderful experience using drumming as a means of meditation. We did a vision quest and a spirit journey, as guided meditations, to the accompaniment of drumming. We also did a water ceremony and a pipe ceremony, following Native American traditions (Ojibwa and Lakota), with excellent background explanations and paraphernalia. Also learned Native American chants. Sam Perry gave a wonderful walk-in-the-woods introduction to herbs and their use. We learned and practiced drum rhythms. The food was absolutely suburb vegetarian fare, from the Raven Crest Farm. The experience was fun, meditatively meaningful and full of warm camaraderie. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would highly recommend it.
Absolutely THE most unforgettable, freeing experience. If you want to find your own voice in the sounds of distant coyotes, wind in the pines, healing human vibrations, primal screams, digeridoos, oms, drums and quiet conversations while finding your balance in pine straw, water, fire, stars, music, gratitude and human experience, do find your way to Raven Crest. The farm's forests, ponds, ceremonial perches and brilliant night skies are other-worldly. Amazing, home-grown organic meals, herbs and earth-friendly fruit and vegetable fields nourish and ground all who enter this place. Maryn is a master of the voice and ray of love sent directly from the sun herself.
I had an amazing time at the Songbird Retreat. Maryn did an exceptional job thoughtfully planning the experience for every participant. The meals were delicious. The activities were intense, but done with care and love. I really enjoyed learning about the Bija mantras, anatomy of the voice, and somatic singing activities. I would do this program all over again, because I learned a lot, and I had a great time with a loving, non-judgmental community of singers at different stages of their development.
