Star Dance Ranch, in western Massachusetts, is the location of our Grief, Loss and Difficult Emotions Retreats.
It is also the home of Jon Terrell. Its quiet, semi-rural location supports the deep emotional healing work we provide.
It's not really a ranch in the sense that we don't have cattle or cowboys but it does have an away-from-it-all feel that can be comforting and relaxing.
It has a 400 square foot new addition, build in 2013, where most of the retreat work is provided. Star Dance Ranch can accommodate up to 12 participants and 8-9 for overnight. Some participants prefer more privacy or need more privacy because they snore, and choose to stay at one of the local motels as long as they agree to be at the ranch for all retreat activities.
The main house is an old farmhouse with 3 bedrooms and 1.5 baths, plus an office.
For each retreat, the upstairs bedrooms are divided into separate sleeping spaces for guests.
These mini, semi-private rooms are individually designed.
At Star Dance Ranch participants slow down and open up to their own unique life journey, their own life process. All are encouraged to "say yes" to all their feelings, so they can live more fully and embrace the full spectrum of their lives.
We even have a flag to remind us:
There is a beautiful old barn.
Across the street are open farmlands.
Star Dance Ranch is 1 hour north of Bradley International Airport, 2 hours west of Boston and 3 hours north of New York City.
Star Dance Ranch is a casual environment and a cozy home, perfectly suited to our deep healing work.
