  • Registration includes lodging, all meals from arrival Thursday evening through departure Sunday late morning; beautifully guided meditations and talks.
  • Also included is the special 5-Year Anniversary Celebration dinner on Saturday evening that will include local fare, mocktails and cocktails, good conversation, and a presentation of appreciations and awards.

We expect on-site accommodations to sell out.
Vegetarian Fare, vegan available; shared (but lovely!) accommodations.

Limited to 22 participants.

Want to do your own thing and only interested in the Celebration dinner? There are 20 tickets available and Karuna is happy to make suggestions for accommodations in and near Estes Park and/or Boulder, CO.

Expect lots of time to explore nature, IRL friendship, and rest.

We are calling this 5-Year Anniversary Celebration “retreat light” as we’ve all experienced enough constriction, restriction, and isolation these past couple years.

The retreat will be led by Karuna and guests. You can expect a loving and safe container that will start each day with gentle movement, a quiet meditation, exceptional food, time to walk and explore the nearby woods. Lunch will be served up and there will be an option to take a day trip, create art, journal, nap, or day dream. 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 yoga nidra practice.

Saturday evening we’ll push back the tables to create a dance floor with catered-in food, drinks, and a short celebratory program that will honor all those who have Mind Oasis such a special place over the past 5 years. We expect a lot of hugs, laughter, and good cheer.

On Sunday, you’ll leave feeling inspired and nourished.
