Retreats and Sabbaticals

  • Individual Private Retreat

    Retreat is a time to awaken to your inner story. It is a time to cultivate that which brings you more alive and to soften and release that which holds you back from embracing your basic goodness.In the quiet, serene atmosphere of Spirit Mountain Retreat you begin to relax and come home to the natural world and your place in it. This is a time to deepen awareness and consciousness of the Divine Presence permeating all of life. Through practices such as meditation, dream work, music, art and journaling, you may come to a greater appreciation of your soul’s journey, honoring it with compassion and gentleness.Meeting for spiritual guidance while you are on retreat can also help guide your time of reflection and quiet. Retreats range from an overnight, during the week/weekend, or for longer periods of time.

I spent four days here for a personal retreat. I was able to accomplish that which I set out to do. The collective energy of the place held my work and my prayer perfectly . . . The energy of nature and quiet is something I needed to feel and touch. This was the perfect place for all of this. You can meet every need here is you come ready to deepen you life walk.
