Alignment is Empowerment

Aligning in an intention to contribute and make a powerful positive difference, we are a great partner to make your retreat or event an exceptional experience for you and your participants.

Please note that we are located in a forest including hilly terrain with various types of sloping loose surface (gravel and wood chips) footpaths. Presenters or their participants with balance or ambulatory challenges are encouraged to contact us directly to make sure that the campus is comfortable for you.

Testimonials

About Our Sanctuary

"Just the naturalness, hearing the leaves falling, the peace!"

The meditation in the retreat setting that I experience here is very powerful. I just feel a loving energy everywhere. Meditating around people who are really experiencing kind of the same things that I am and just by being in a peaceful place like this I’m surrounded by beautiful energy and beautiful nature. It really feels like close to heaven all the time.

What I would say to people who either can’t find the time to come on a retreat, I would say the same thing about meditation. You need to set aside some time each day to meditate; you need to set some time each year to attend a retreat.

The environment here at the Sanctuary is just beautiful. I often come in the Fall just because I love to see the change of seasons. The walk through the woods from the Sanctuary Lodge to where all the buildings are is probably my favorite along with walking the mountain. Just the naturalness, hearing the leaves falling, the peace!
