Women’s Circle Meditation in Himalayan Salt Cave at Pellegrino Healing Center in Hyde Park

Michelle Eggink in Pellegrino’s Himalayan Salt Cave

Michelle Eggink, a meditation and mindfulness teacher and ceremonial breathwork facilitator, will lead a women’s circle and inner-strength event on May 14, from 6:30 to 8 p.m., at the Pellegrino Healing Center’s Himalayan Salt Cave in Hyde Park.

“A women’s circle is an intentional gathering to unite women, build community and elevate our healing and inner strength,” Eggink says. “Women’s circles offer a special experience that elicit feelings of belonging, safety and support—a collective power of feminine energy that’s judgment free and full of encouragement.”

The theme of the event is “Regaining Strength and Stepping into Your Own Personal Power,” which Eggink helps participants accomplish through meditation, safe expression and the strength of the collective feminine. She’s scheduled the women’s circle as preparation for the upcoming full flower moon (May 16), which she calls “a time for new beginnings and evolution.”

Activities will include two guided meditations, calming breathwork, short journaling exercises, discussion and sharing time, and organic tea. Participants should plan to wear comfortable clothing and bring a journal and pen. They can also choose to bring water and a meditation pillow. All activities will take place inside the cave, which is constructed entirely of pink Himalayan rock salt. Space is limited, so preregistration and prepayment are required. 

Cost: $40. Location: Pellegrino Healing Center Salt Cave, 4307 Albany Post Rd., Hyde Park, NY. For more information and to register, visit
