Trinity Center offers 44 guestrooms which have been carefully constructed within the natural beauty and tranquility of the maritime forest. The rooms are divided into 4 housing clusters. Each cluster contains 8-12 rooms. Amenities per room include one double and one single bed, private bath with stand-up shower, a dresser, vanity, and nightstand with alarm clock and reading lamp.
The rooms are individually heated and cooled. Linens such as bed sheets and bath towels are provided for most groups. To maintain the retreat atmosphere, Trinity Center has purposefully left out the telephone, TV, and internet connection. They also do not offer daily maid service. Besides your room, there is also a nice lounge area for each group of rooms, so it will be easy for you to get to know each other.
The rooms are conveniently clustered around a common living room. You just have to walk out of your door, cross the deck, and enter the living room to find comfortable couches and chairs, coffee tables, a cable TV / DVD, kitchenette with small refrigerator, microwave, ice maker and coffee maker with coffee supplies, a gas log fireplace, and telephone. This space is perfect for after-hours gatherings, movie watching, or just hanging out. Although there is no internet in the guestrooms, wireless is available in the living rooms.
You will be exploring the alignment of asanas postures that open body and mind. You will also learn to breathe in ways that raise biological energy (prana) to a higher state and be drawn to that safe and quiet space inside with meditation, pranayama, poetry, and creative visualizations. You will practice by using the intelligence of the body to create harmony and ease.
Spending concentrated time in retreat, you will cultivate consciousness and nonjudgmental awareness. It will be a gift to yourself, a chance for mental, physical, and spiritual rejuvenation. You will spend several hours a day in a morning and afternoon practice of yoga, pranayama, and meditation as well as some evening activities a couple of the nights. There will always be a long break in the afternoon for you to explore the beautiful beach, the sound side, and pretty little trails.
