90 minutes from Bozeman, MT (extra evening add-ons available for exploring Yellowstone, horseback riding, fly fishing, and more with advance notice).

Registration fee includes lodging, all meals from arrival Wednesday evening through departure Sunday late morning; beautifully guided meditations and talks with Karuna; yoga asana and iRest© Yoga Nidra with Turi Hetherington; vegetarian fare, vegan available; and accommodations of your choice (first come, first served). Mats, blankets, and props are available for use.

Vaccinated? Ready for some carefully curated connection after a year plus of quarantine and avoiding others? This retreat is designed to prepare your body, spirit, and mind for re-entry into life. Space is extremely limited, with 12 spots only.

About the Retreat

What does it mean to Get Lost in order to be found? We’ll explore purification rituals through meditation and movement. We’ll explore our heart’s desire and the four boundless qualities we can invoke to break down the walls that bind us up and offer a false sense of security. Playing in the open field of groundlessness in a safe and nourishing environment, you’ll leave the retreat with a better sense of what has been found and where to go from here….

There will be plenty of time each afternoon for personal exploration, hiking, resting, journaling, and more. The mornings will be filled with yoga asana, meditation, and dharma talks. We will observe mauna (silence) each evening from the end of iRest© Yoga Nidra through breakfast the next morning. We’ll cap off the evenings with dharma, meditation, and iRest Yoga Nidra. Single song dance parties will abound…

Accommodations

Of note, there are a couple cabins available for rent on the property if you wish to bring your family along for an extra fee. If you wish to share your individual accommodations with a partner, you are most welcome to do so for an extra fee. This can be arranged with Karuna.

Travel

It’s about a 90 minute stunning drive from Bozeman, MT. You will want to arrive at the ranch in the daylight, so please plan accordingly for your flight on Wednesday. We can help arrange car pooling after you register.

SOMETIMES
by David Whyte

Sometimes
if you move carefully
through the forest,
breathing
like the ones
in the old stories,
who could cross
a shimmering bed of leaves
without a sound,
you come to a place
whose only task
is to trouble you
with tiny
but frightening requests,
conceived out of nowhere
but in this place
beginning to lead everywhere.
Requests to stop what
you are doing right now,
and
to stop what you
are becoming
while you do it,
questions
that can make
or unmake
a life,
questions
that have patiently
waited for you,
questions
that have no right
to go away.
