A retreat at Reber Rock Farm

Dates: September 13-15, 2024

Location: Reber Rock Farm in Essex, NY

Did you know that your chronic pain and stress are keeping secrets?

Ancient wisdom teaches us that our bodies tell us the stories that our minds don’t want us to hear, and when we aren’t willing to listen our stress and pain grows. What if we knew how to decode what our bodies were telling us, and let go of the pain for good?

Join Nathan Henderson of Reber Rock Farm and Brian Trzaskos of the Somatic Coaching Academy


Join us on a journey from stress, pain, and over-obligation to ease and fulfillment in this lighthearted and liberating 3-day retreat at the beautiful Reber Rock Farm.

Whether you are dealing with stress and pain and wanting to make a transformation in your life or intensely curious about the body-mind connections that result in pain and disease, this on-farm retreat will leave you feeling more relaxed, engaged, motivated, creative and empowered in your own life.

We will spend 3-days together

  • Exploring body-mind connections in real time so that you can get the important answers you need about your own health and wellbeing
  • Practicing ancient body-mind healing methods so that you have tools to strengthen your own body, emotions, and mind
  • Wandering purposefully through nature so that you can reconnect with that lost part of yourself which is longing to be remembered and expressed

Together we will journey past the pain and stress responses that shape so much of our lives into a world of deeper, inner understanding to heal the source of what ails us.

        Nathan Henderson 

        Nathan is the co-owner of Reber Rock Farm, a pasture raised certified organic meat and maple farm in Essex, NY established in 2013. He is a geologist, musician, business owner, farmer, father and partner. Teaching has been a subconscious thread throughout Nathan’s life, as a tennis pro, outdoor educator and farm mentor, and became a conscious choice after a herniated disk left him immobilized in bed for 3 months in 2021. Since it was Covid, he had to schedule elective pain management surgery 6 months out, and he looked for another solution to his pain. Narcotics and edibles didn’t touch the pain effectively, and through work with Brian Trzaskos and the Somatic Coaching Academy Nathan began to untangle the relationship between body, pain and perception. Long before the surgery date he was on the path to recovery and remains pain free today. This experience inspired him to become a life coach, and he launched his one-on-one coaching and group classes in January 2024.


        Registration fee is $897. Reach out to register – limited spots available.

        Part 1: Why Did I Wait So Long?

        You might be wondering: how do I know if this retreat is a good fit for me? What kind of things will I learn? To answer these questions I will be sharing my own story of chronic pain and how I found a new perspective on my own body, my health, my family, my business and my relationships.
