A Mind Oasis Retreat led by Founder Karuna & Friends


7-10 November 2024
Rocky Mountains, CO
Sunshine Mountain Lodge

What to Expect:

At Mind Oasis, we believe in “retreat light”.  Tight schedules, restrictions, and isolation aren’t our style. 

You can expect a loving and safe container among people who share your desire to connect to self, spirit, and whatever it is that you hold sacred. 

Tucked (very) comfortably into the natural wonderland of the Colorado Rocky Mountains, you’ll wake up to the stillness of nature and fresh mountain air. 

Your days will begin with quiet meditation, gentle movement, and a feel-good breakfast. 

Following a guided meditation, you’ll enjoy a lunch of exceptional vegetarian and vegan food. Afternoons offer the flexibility of optional activities in the surrounding landscape, or you can choose to explore the nearby woods at your leisure, create art, journal, nap, or just daydream. 

We’ll come back together for a Dharma talk and meditation before dinner.  After dinner activities might include reflective time around a campfire (marshmallows encouraged!), chatting in the kitchen over a cup of tea, and a soothing yoga nidra practice. 

In the works is a Mindful Cooking Session for Saturday afternoon, and we’ll celebrate with movement during our dance party on Saturday night!

Why You’ll Love It!

The Colorado Rocky Mountains are pure magic. Overcome by their pristine beauty, the brave and independent explorer Isabella Bird once remarked, 

“The Rocky Mountains realize – nay, exceed – the dream of my childhood. It is magnificent, and the air is life-giving.”

It’s in this landscape, just 20 minutes from Rocky Mountain National Park, that we’ll share a nourishing, mindfulness-based retreat.  

“Last year’s retreat was phenomenal. The serene location, beautiful surroundings, delicious food, and peaceful atmosphere were amazing. The size of the group and dynamics were perfect. The meditation instruction was incredible…a perfect mix of instruction and guidance with freedom to explore and grow on your own. The best part was Karuna’s and Joseph’s hospitality, so warm and welcoming making you feel like family. Lots of fun things to do during free time. I made friends and deepened my practice. Don’t hesitate…just come! You will not regret it! “
