About us

★ Discover Your North Star – 9am-6pm

In the entanglement of the day to day we often lose sight of direction. The fundamental aim gets dimmed by routine. We invite you to join us, discover your true north and align your life with what matters most.

Allow the silence and stillness of Nature to reveal the magnificent potential that lies within.

Give yourself space to envision a life that calls on your unique gifts, is fulfilling and positively impacts the world.

Create intentions for the journey unique to your desires and passions.

We present the following offerings during the retreat, you decide how much or how little is right for you …


We invite you to fall into the embrace of the forest.

Experience meditation as water flows over

the moss covered boulders of Newberry Creek soothing your mind, body and soul.

Wander along a forest trail during winter’s rest, taking in the rock faces

and the beauty of the mountains contours knowing Nature is honoring your presence.

Tap into all of your senses as the energy of the Forest moves through

you bringing a sense of well-being; feel your breath in rhythm with Nature.

Center in the present moment, gain clarity about what fulfills you, what brings a sense of purpose into your life.


What’s the light that will guide you out of your own tangled woods—both the woods “out there” in the world and the ones “in here,” inside your own mind?

Allow yourself to get curious and explore.

“Who am I?”

“What are my gifts?”

“What is my soul calling me to do?”

“What is the Greater Why?”

Honor your sacred self and affirm your truth “I matter because…”

Explore the Gifts of Community and Creativity

Enjoy meeting like minded men and women who support your journey of self-discovery.

Join in community song and music to connect with Spirit and bring joy into your heart knowing that all is as it should be in the present moment.

Food for my soul

” I”ve been involved in a lot of retreats over that last 20 years either as a facilitator or a participant. This retreat was as good as many of the best I”ve experienced. The setting immediately puts you at ease and I found myself relaxing into the wonders of the forest, sounds of the nearby stream, the embrace of a wonderful retreat center and Lisa’s “momma bears” warm welcome, embrace and skill as a facilitator. All details are tended to. The design and flow of the retreat allowed time for personal reflection, time alone if you wanted it or time with others. I found it both spiritual and challenging in my own personal work. Would definitely suggest others treat themselves to a retreat at Indigo. ”

– Mickey Addison

Yesterday was a very powerful day for me and I'm basking in gratefulness to have spent such special time with you all. My gratitude to Lisa for having the vision and courage to create and build Indigo and allowing us to enter her space to learn, share, sign, create, release. Mickey Addison

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Reconnecting with myself after a very crazy few months with a new baby! Just having that feeling of being grounded again. But also having an opportunity to connect with new amazing people. Getting exposed and Inspired by new (to me) yoga instructors (and community). Being in the presence of real, authentic and raw emotion (the whole spectrum).. So many reasons! Alyson

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
