 Annette Boelman  aka Dancing Deer is the owner operator of Quantum Leaps Lodge and Retreats.   Annette is a registered bodyworker, trained in Massage at the New Mexico Academy of Healing Arts.  She is also a Craniosacral Therapist with her training with the Upledger Institute.  She is a seeker of knowledge and spirit.  She has also studied and practiced Shamanic Drumming over the last 12 years.

Nature/Native Spirituality is where Annette finds her peace and reference for all that is divine and good. In 2006, she and Brian were guided to begin leading Sweatlodges for all people, guided by the Grandmothers. She has been living in the Canadian Rockies since 1996 (coming from the Edmonton region) and moved in 2003 from Canmore, AB.  Golden, BC is just the natural progression.  She has joined the Quantum Leaps' vision and goals with a loving and open heart. The lodge is evolving as they work together in common vision, purpose,  and love.  You will find her outside in the Garden, nurturing and loving all the vegetables that is grown here on the land.  She loves to canoe, hike, and explore beautiful places in the world.

Why Retreat?

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

To reconnect with my inner self, found ground through the movement of my body and breath. Awake. Jane

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.
