I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found I was really going in.

Colorado Wilderness-Based Teen Retreat

One_Teen_Girl_Meditating_BigSkyCome unplug and tune in! Participants on our retreats learn self-awareness, mindful communication, and techniques to calm and focus the mind – the foundations for success in all areas of life. We spend time each day learning mindfulness meditation — a scientifically proven practice that builds emotional resilience, inner strength and well being.

Teens also participate in small group discussions, yoga and creative workshops – including arts, nature, and mindful sports activities. And there’s lots of free time to connect with new friends in a safe and accepting space. Many hesitant teens walk away saying it was one of the best experiences of their lives.

This retreat welcomes teens from all racial/ethnic groups, sex and gender identities, abilities, and religions. Mindfulness creates a foundation for conversations that support understanding and deepen our connection to one another.
