Return to Spiritual Opportunities


It is through authentic encounter with self, God, others and all of creation that we embrace the seasons of our lives:

  - owning the past

             - dwelling in the present

                         - opening to the future

- Philosophy of Corazón


We invite you to view the attached brochure and/or slide show describing the
conference, vacation and retreat facilities located on our upstate property.

Corazón Center

Operated by the Dominican Sisters of Sparkill, New York,
Situated on one mile of river-front property
along the west bank of the Hudson River
Approximately 100 miles north of New York City.

The nurturing and healing gift of the earth is abundantly evident in this land.
Walking paths, woods, and river-edge clearings foster solitude, wonder,
and oneness of spirit, mind and body within the embrace of God's bounty.
