March Retreat Focuses on Mastering Personal Energy: March 8 through 10

Anne Bentzen

Anne Bentzen, a Westchester Reiki master and teacher, will offer a special local retreat, Walking Powerfully in the World, March 8 through 10 at the Holmes Camp and Retreat Center. The weekend event is designed to help participants start the new year by mastering their personal and creative energy. “This course is about understanding energy and taking responsibility for the life you create,” she says. “Everything is energy.”

By teaching energetic awareness and empowerment, Bentzen says, she helps people create personal boundaries and learn to use emotions without becoming them. “Personal energy mastery means being fully present. As we raise our vibrational frequency, we claim our power to choose the life we want to live. In this workshop, participants will discover four pillars of heart-centered living that will foster greater personal peace and help them live in alignment with their higher selves. Living from the heart allows more of your divine nature to shine through.”

The retreat begins at 7 p.m. Friday and ends at noon Sunday. The program includes energy and movement exercises, meditation and a Saturday evening sound bath featuring professional musician Kathy Shelhart, from the Byram Hills School District. The retreat will conclude with an interfaith service and healing circles using the power of intention.

Cost includes meals and two nights of lodging at Holmes Camp and Retreat Center. Various accommodation options are available. Location: 60 Denton Lake Rd., Holmes, NY. For information and registration, call 845.878.6383 or visit
