I went to Lily Dale many years ago (date below is incorrect) and have not returned . . . not because I don't want to, but because I was freaked out by my experiences there. The first thing that happened was that I was "called out" by a medium as I and about one hundred other people started to gather... More

First time. We will come back. Lots of free things to do at the assembly. We did two sessions both worth every penny.

A few years ago I was in need of a "mental laxative" if you will. A new friend recommended Lily Dale. I have been here numerous times the last 3+ years and the 2017 season will be my 4th. I have attended may workshops/classes and met some super people. This past February I began renting a cool cottage her in... More

Most peaceful place I have been. I will carry my Lily Dale experience with me for the rest of my life. Spiritually powerful, calming and absolutely beautiful. Are the buildings aging? Yes, but that's not why people flock to the Dale. Just go. I went to present a workshop, but I received far more than I gave. Stay up late... More

An interesting collection of buildings and inspiration. I particularly liked the Pilgrim Path which is a maze type walking area to mediate and pray. Lots of cute monuments. Cute area, and no fee to get into Lilydale after the summer season.
