Treat yourself or your team to a retreat on our beautiful land

We have been stewards of our rural oasis in Western Massachusetts for 25 years. Organic gardens, solar panels, trout stream with pristine swimming, wandering trails, paddling and more await you. Enjoy the healing gift of the land itself and or bring yourself, team or organization here for a retreat that we will facilitate and host. The place allows for deep reflection, soulful work, and clarity of thinking that comes from stepping back to gain perspective.

Soul and Strategy Retreats

Powerful change in the world requires two things. Audacious vision and focused action. Does your team need new inspiration and practical focus? Come spend a soul and strategy day with us at our Rural Oasis and return home with both.

Here’s an example of how this works.

Juliette who is a UMass Professor, Mother of 3 young boys, serves on the Mayor’s commission for Climate Change in her city and is a founder and leader of the Climate Change Initiative at her University chose to take a day out of her massively busy schedule for Soul and Strategy with us. Her intention was to rest, renew, re-boot her vision and walk away with a clear set of priorities and actions to manifest that vision. Then bring these new insights back to her family, her community and her colleagues. Here’s what she wrote us shortly after:

“First, THANK YOU. This was transformative for me, a big piece in my journey. Thank you for a grounding, wonderful day. I’m definitely in better shape to tackle the biggest problems in my world. Then at our CCI Planning Workshop, you once again demonstrated your ability to foster transformative organizational change. I also feel empowered to be even more bold in my leadership. Thanks to our day with you, we have a shared vision of what we want to achieve, a renewed commitment to our collective work, and a plan for how to move towards our goals.”
