A Full Day Retreat

for helpers & healers

Reclaim Your Rhythm:
a full day retreat for helpers & healers




This is your invitation to root back in and connect to yourself as a rhythmic being and reconnect with your breath and body.To discern what is important for you to tune into and what you want to filter out.

You’re overwhelmed. Tapped out. Pulled in multiple directions. There’s never time to slow down and tune in. All day long you’re caring for your family, clients, patients, students – everyone but yourself. You can keep the chaotic world at bay – but just barely some days. Typically you press forward and keep going – but that isn’t quite enough anymore.

Something deep inside you is calling out to be grounded, heard, and exhaled.

There’s a sense of rhythm and play in your life – but so often, you find yourself disconnected from it. The rhythm of the world and the people around you affects you deeply. 

It’s time to find the calm in the chaos.

I get it. I’ve been there too. And that’s why I find this work so deeply meaningful. And I believe you will too.

When you join us for this one-day retreat, you will:

  • experience an opportunity to fully exhale
  • ground and soften into creativity, the breath, and rhythm
  • use journaling and discussion to dive into how rhythm shows up in your life
  • explore creative and embodied play with instruments
  • soften into guided relaxation and imagery experiences 
  • receive community-style acupuncture from Susan of NY Chi Acupuncture to help promote grounding and ease

After this retreat you will…

  • be deeply nourished and grounded
  • feel an increased connection to your own internal rhythms
  • deepen your insight about how external rhythms affect you
  • discover simple tools you can use to help yourself feel both grounded and uplifted
  • recognize and reclaim the rhythms that you need in order to flourish as a helper, healer, and human
  • find some calm within the chaos

Hi, I’m Maya.

I’m a music therapist and psychotherapist in private practice in New York City. I’m passionate about deep dives into rhythmic play, mindfulness and creativity to help you show up boldly and calmly in this hectic world. Let’s reclaim your rhythm!

    Check in is from 10am – 10:30am, we’ll begin at 10:30 and we’ll wrap up by 4pm.
  2. Where? Create Community Space – 11 Peekskill Road, Cold Spring, NY 10516.
  3. How do I get there? Cold Spring is a 70 minute train ride from Grand Central (along the lovely Hudson River – sit on the left side of the train for the best views!)
    Create Community Space is a beautiful 20-25 minute walk through the village or a 5-minute cab to the studio from the Cold Spring train station. There is ample on-site parking if you choose to drive.
  4. How much does this retreat cost? $185 early bird special until August 20 ($225 after).
    Cost includes a delicious catered lunch, water/coffee/tea, group acupuncture, and a custom hand-painted Reclaim Your Rhythm journal.
  5. Who is this for? If your personal and/or professional life consists of helping and caring for others, this is for you! All helpers and healers – therapists, teachers, coaches, health professionals, acupuncturists, doulas, parents, activists, caregivers. 
  6. Do I need to be musical? Not at all! Maya has been leading workshops for years – often with people who have no musical experience or skill. Maya is skilled at making experiential exercises fun and approachable. You *may* be asked to step a tad outside of your comfort zone, but you’re ready for that. 🙂
  7. What do I bring? Just bring yourself.

  12. Is the acupuncture optional? The group acupuncture will take place while Maya is providing a live music and relaxation experience. Susan will be placing just a few needles on each person to support their capacity for grounding and ease. If you’d rather not have acupuncture, she’s happy to provide acupressure (no needles) or you can opt to pass on this portion of our retreat offering.

Reclaim Your Rhythm Testimonials

“Maya has tremendous sensitivity and versatility in her teaching style and use of modalities. I highly recommend her workshops!”
-Briana MacWilliam, MPS, ATR-BC, LCAT

“This workshop was an incredible and much needed experience! As a woman, therapist, and healthcare manager, I often neglect my own self-care, pushing it aside for the demands of daily life. 

However, after this beautifully creative, deep, and meaningful experience, I felt so refreshed, recharged, and ready to be in the world again. 

Maya did a wonderful job fostering a relaxing, peaceful, and therapeutic environment as she intuitively facilitated our journey. It’s an experience that I’ve carried with me in my personal and professional life.”

– Emily McClure, LCAT
