Rest and Renewal Retreat

Ghost Ranch Education and Retreat Center
May 15-19, 2022

Sponsored by the

Ghost Ranch

Rest, re-energize, and discern after four full conference days in this minimally-programmed retreat. 

Ghost Ranch is just one hour north of Santa Fe.  Here, huge cottonwood trees border the Rio Chama, mountains rise in the distance, and the nearby landscape soars and swoops with cliffs and table-topped mesas, offering vistas that naturally lead you to wonder and contemplation.

We’ll able to process and ponder the rich teachings and experiences from the conference in sharing circles with fellow attendees and SDI staff, or in solitude.

We’ll be invited into morning and evening storytime and teachings around ritual with Native elders around the fireside.  

We’ll have lots of space for spontaneous spiritual companionship to arise.  

We’ll have opportunities for landscape painting, horseback riding, guided hikes, and behind-the-scenes museum tours. Yoga will be available, as well as body work, contemplative canoeing, and a tour of Georgia O’Keeffe’s home and studio.
