Relax, recharge, and explore the 19th century gardens and 20 historic buildings.

Cuddle with the animals (they’re still babies)

Take mom to three wellness-related talks:

Strong women (11:30 pm): What was it like to be a 19th century Shaker woman? Learn how they managed healthcare, wellness, work and being equal with men 150 years before women’s suffrage.

Medicinal Herbs (1:30pm): Discover the fascinating story of how the Shakers gathered wild herbs, then cultivated plants for plant-based wellness, eventually selling the surplus – by the mid-1800s doctors were ordering hundreds of different herbs and the Shakers had a booming business.  Talk moves from the garden to the apothecary and infirmary of the 1828 Brick Dwelling

Gong Sound Healing Meditation (2:30pm): Using the technology of Kundalini Yoga, this class begins with a short breath meditation and then moves into the soundscapes of the gong. Meditate or simply relax and heal. All levels, all ages, all are welcome.

Moms can take home a seedling and remember their special day as it blossoms.
