Our February Self-Love, Self-Guided Retreat Week is February 14-21, 2016.


Introducing the Self-Love, Self-Guided Retreat.

Design your own retreat from one night to all seven nights. The special self-guided retreat package includes:

  • One guided tour of Windows of the Earth Cave Sanctuary for guests who are lodging with us. The tour will be offered daily at 11 AM Mountain. Experience this unique hand-carved art cave created by renowned artisan Ra Paulette.
  • If you wish, join us for a guided group meditation held onsite in our well appointed yurt each day of your stay, beginning at 4 PM Mountain. Attend as often as you like to enjoy the enhanced benefits of meditating with others in our peaceful, serene high desert setting.
  • The yurt is also available throughout day (except during specific events) for yoga, movement, stretching and meditation on your own. Mats, cushions, blankets, chairs and backjacks provided.
  • Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Spa is just 10 minutes away by car. With a stay of two or more nights, your retreat package includes a $25 gift certificate (per Origin guest room) so you can luxuriate at the spa in the natural healing mineral waters of Mother Earth. Transportation to the spa is on your own.
