Wellness Opportunities @ the Lake Clear Lodge & Retreat in the Adirondack “Healing Woods.”

6 Retreats - 4 Fun Weekends - 9 Online Workshops


Cathy Hohmeyer

Executive Chef, Energist

Lake Clear Lodge & Retreat


What is one of the oldest Adirondack Mountain economies? You probably would guess tourism and outdoor recreation. But a half a century before the 1932 Lake Placid Winter Olympic games and before the rail and roads connected these remote sylvan woods, wellness was a dominant industry.

Beginning in the 1800’s, all walks of life came for the “cure,” as TB patients sought the pristine air and natural tonics of the Adirondacks. From Robert Louis Stevenson to the baseball Hall of Famer Christy Mathewson, whole communities were born as “Cure Cottages,” from the Great Camps to private homes in the Lake Clear, Saranac Lake and Paul Smiths area.

As the longest operating Great Camp in the Adirondack Park, family operated since 1886, the Lake Clear Lodge & Retreat continues this wellness tradition in what became known as the “Healing Woods, with a series of opportunities for self-care from intensive retreats to fun, introductory weekends as well as online gatherings. Offerings range from "Learning to Re-energize your Food,” to “Rediscovering the Multi-dimensional You, of Mind, Body & Spirit!”

Programs are coordinated by founding family member Cathy Hohmeyer, Executive Chef & Energist and a host of international, national and Adirondack wellness practitioners.

Welcome to the World of Nutritional Energetics in the Adirondack Park!

Three (3) programs set the stage beginning with introductory workshops to understanding that what makes you, you, requires a connecting, holistic approach.

  • It all begins with food and redefining what it means, and the role it plays not only for physical nourishment but energizing our mind and spirit. Introductory classes begin with how you can maximize the nutrient density of different meals, understanding the importance of the colors of food, essential oils, and cooking strategies that target your energy and spirit and, along the way, spice up that flavor!

Advanced food courses make the connection between mind, body and spirit as we enter the world of Nutritional Energetics. Learn to know your personal energetic blueprint as we explore the nine (9) levels of natural nourishment. BioAcoustics, Block Therapy, Frequencies of Food, and Lifewave Patches, are a sample of nurturing your nature!
