These retreats were created to serve the ever growing need to provide a safe and quality environment to eliminate toxins and deficiencies from the body. We work to give people the knowledge to clarify mental processes and allow the body/mind to realize the health it was naturally intended to have.
Our retreats are held at the beautiful and peaceful Ithaca Zen Center, a 60-acre facility in the Finger Lakes Region of upstate New York. The grounds feature two spring-fed ponds, wood-fired saunas, a dining hall, meditation center, studio space for yoga and aerobics, and a wide range of custom-designed residences all nestled in the heart of a serene forest.

Founder/Director Marcia Radin
Many guests at Body Mind Restoration Retreats come as part of their commitment to themselves to live a healthier life, but leave having had a transformative individual and cultural experience that truly awakens their soul. We are so proud to have connected with so many individuals through the years, having touched and nourished every single person.
“The retreats have massively reduced heavy metal poisoning that has plagued me most of my adult life crippling my circulatory systems and heart. Better, the skills and information I absorbed have changed by lifestyle immensely.”
“When I arrived two years ago my blood pressure was 205/100 on medication. Today my pressure is 120/70 without taking medication. Thank you David and Marcia and staff for giving me the tools for my health transformation.”
“What an amazing experience! My joints feel so much better. I can feel myself “melting away” in a good way. A great staff, great foods prepared with so much love in a soft green paradise. Thanks so much!!!”
