“we don't remember days, we remember moments.” ― Cesare pavese



Family & Friends

We invite you to join us for a weekend of infinite magic and moments we'd love to create with you. Spring, a time of rebirth, renewal and creation, has arrived. It's the perfect time to reconnect with ourselves and others.

— Each of us will add our superpower(s) to create the magic.


Bring a story, a gift, a class/workshop or a talent to share with others with the intention to inspire one another — and co-create a weekend of magic, celebration, love, and surprises.

** Come dressed as your most colorful self **


Weekend will include biodynamic farm to table meals, yoga, farming with the amazing Zach Wolf, of course delicious music and dancing and other surprises of the moment.

The Dutchess will provide our safe, sacred space for the gathering of thoughtfully curated individuals whom we respect, admire and love. 

The Dutchess is a 200-acre secret destination in the Hudson Valley that relies on word of mouth and elements of surprise. It differs from a traditional retreat in that its experience is elevated by not revealing much context or visuals ahead of a guest's arrival.

Prices are per person for the entire weekend (2 nights) inclusive of biodynamic farm to table meals, programming, yoga (wellness), all taxes and fees.

Please note our shared room options assumes a bed-share.

“This place has only three exits, sir: Madness and Death”- René Daumal


The moment between life and death is emblematic. A recurring thought in all of us, at every stage. Death is in films, in books, in our morning news, and in our afternoon walks. Death is in life - always. As Octavio Paz wrote, “Everything flows. What I lived, is dying still.”

In Mexico, death is a celebration. Día de Muertos is not only about those who have left us, but also about those of us who are still here. 

Let’s embrace it. Come celebrate with us!


6 pm - 10 pm:   Ubuntu Market  (Mexican Artisanal Market)  - at Upstairs Gallery of Casa Mezcal

6 pm - 10 pm:   Drinks & Collaborative Altar - at Botanic Lab

10 pm - 2 am:   DJ After Party by Imox - at Botanic Lab

artist call


We will be creating a collaborative altar in tribute of loved ones who have passed and we want your help. 


It is believed that on November 1st and 2nd the souls of the dead return. The idea of altars is to offer them their favorite foods, water, tequila, mezcal, cigarettes, or even toys (for the souls of the children).

All of this is placed alongside portraits of the dead ( for info & inspiration). You can bring anything you want or see fit for our tribute of both life and death.
