Howdy and welcome! Originally from Phoenix, Arizona—as a kid, I would travel to Colorado every summer with my family. It was my favorite time of year which sparked my dream of having a small retreat that people could visit and feel renewed by the forest and mountain’s energy. Fast forward a couple decades later and it’s now a reality! I didn’t realize until after moving in, but Earth Spirit Lodge is a property that I actually passed by every summer on my way to the campground I would stay at. What a neat and surprising full circle manifestation! Previously, I owned a healing center for eight years in Arizona where I developed my skills in community leadership, teaching, and life coaching. As time progresses on, my aim is to have the lodge not just be a vacation destination, but also a retreat center where people can come for extended stays on personal wellness retreats. For now, Earth Spirit Lodge is simply a relaxing getaway where each year I’m making strides on remodeling improvements, beautifying the grounds, and cultivating a peaceful atmosphere that all can feel and enjoy while here. When I’m not working on the lodge, I like to host community events, potlucks, teach country line dancing, and continue writing my Living Peace series of books. :)

During your stay
We live on the property, so one of us is always around. We treat this as a sanctuary and practice Noble Silence with our guests, especially when walking around the lake or enjoying one of our meditation stations. You will be able to text and email us at anytime for quick responses, but when you see us out walking or gardening, we will likely just acknowledge you with a silent bow and smile.
