Fall Update 2020

Monday, November 30th, 2020

To All friends, clients, colleagues of Stone Mountain Center:

Many people have been disappointed about our closing, as of April 1, 2020. Of course Covid was the precipitating factor, and we couldn’t figure out how to do the hands-on, up-close work we do without danger of infecting our clients.

Robin and  I mourn the passing away of Stone Mountain Center and the Center for Symbolic Studies, as they have functioned over the last thirty years. Lots of people feel have told us they have been helped by us, and to them, we have felt like a “family.” This extends to all the wonderful community that attended our workshops, trainings and festivals.

The physical property at 310 River Rd Ext. (at the top of the hill at Stone Mountain Farm) is no longer accessible to previous clients, or the public, we are sorry to say.  (please don’t visit unexpectedly as there are families staying in both the center and the “movement space”) next door. The telephone and fax are the same: (Center is 845-658-8083; Fax is 845-3369; e-mail; office( at ); or for a more personal connection: stephen( at)

I will be doing telehealth sessions on a regular phone line, Facetime at my cell, or Zoom where appropriate, also meeting outdoors at a social distance, with previous clients (or new clients with a recommendation from a colleague, or friend.) Fees will be by the month or by the session on an out-of-pocket basis.  A useful email contact for arranging private sessions is bookkeeping( at )

The Rail-Trail Café has had a banner year, and the same goes for the bike rental service ” Happy Trails Bike Rental”. This place continue to be a community nexus, where we would be happy to see you.  You can also, by becoming a member of CSS, continue to hike and bike the trails (while respecting private residences and maintaining social distance.)

With a sorrowful, cordial farewell to our old friends and clients.
