Welcome to Quarry Hill's Blog!

Quarry Hill Creative Center in Rochester, VT, founded 1946 by Barbara and Irving Fiske, is Vermont's oldest alternative community and at one time was probably also its largest. In the 60s -80s, as many as 90 people lived here.
It was and is visited each year, often in summer (but in every season, really) by visitors from all over the world.
We welcome interesting and creative people who are peaceful, bring no weapons, don't believe in hitting children or killing animals, and enjoy the beauty of Vermont and of themselves.

Most of us do not adhere to any particular dogma or religion, though many do find Eastern philosophy closest to our own thought (some of us are also members of the Quakers/Society of Friends).
We value the individual, particularly people who are energetic and have a sense of humor.
Visitors are welcome-- and prospective residents, too. There are some places for rent, others for sale. If interested, get in touch!
And, please follow the Blog and comment whenever you like!

"The symbol is the enemy of the reality, and the reality is ever one's true guide, true friend, true companion, and true self." Irving Fiske, 1908-1990

An Inquiry into the Root of Fear


Fear  is an extraordinary jewel which has dominated human beings for forty  thousand years and more. And if you can hold it and look at it, then one  begins to see the ending of it.                               

We invite you to our annual Krishnamurti  Gathering and Dialogues where we meet as a community in both large and  small groups to inquire into the major themes of Krishnamurti’s  teachings and their relevance to our daily lives.

The  weekend begins Friday evening with a buffet and an orientation which  includes discussion of the dialogue process. In addition to daily  dialogues and video showings of Krishnamurti’s talks, there is  opportunity for solitude, to meet informally, and to enjoy the lovely  rural setting.

The  Bishop Claggett Center is a 277 acre retreat center in Frederick  County, Maryland, an hour’s drive from the Baltimore and Washington  metropolitan areas
