This retreat honors our need for sanctuary and a sustainable connection to our courage, happiness and peace of mind. Trees are anchored and sustained by tap roots reaching deep into the earth for water and stability. This makes them resilient, supporting them as they bend with the wind. We too can be rooted, resilient, flexible and connected to what sustain us.

What sustains you and strengthens your resilience?
What are your sources of nourishment, inspiration, renewal & happiness?

Mornings begin with stress reduction exercises and awareness of breath meditation. These practices clarify the senses, allowing the mind to rest and deepening our capacity to see the ingredients that create our personal well being.

Ancient wisdom stories, poetry and images will invite you to explore your inner sanctuary through art, council circle and journalling. During our time together we’ll use a variety of approaches to drink deeply from the well that sustains us; so that you can return to your life with a deeper connection to your inner sanctuary.

Registration ends on Nov.5th Early Register by Oct 30, just $98!

Nov. 15 is from 10-4 pm, Nov. 16 from 11-2pm…so there’s plenty of time to enjoy the hot spring pools or go to the Bosque del Apache and see the cranes!
