“A weekend of meditation, yoga and Kirtan sounded more than a bit intimidating. Especially considering I didn’t even know what Kirtan was (Indian-inspired call and response singing of mantras accompanied by the harmonium). Singing is not one of my gifts. Plus most of the attendees were yoga instructors or life coaches — all infinitely more experienced than I. But I trusted, and opened my heart and mind to a brand new experience. We kicked things off with an incredible double rainbow, and that truly set the tone for the weekend. We explored personal transformation through surrendering to openness, creating the life we want, and practicing being our best selves. I connected with nine other incredible souls and got more in touch with my own heart and soul through the experience. Mike and Mindy guided the group with creative expertise and made the experience easy and captivating. Thank you, for this amazing gift, and thanks to all of my new friends for holding me in your hearts and inspiring me. The laughs, Chef Jeff’s delicious food, beautiful property and spa soaks were bonus blessings!”
— Rachelle Kostel Trujillo, Sr. Director of Marketing, yogi

“My name is Lila Gonzalez and I am the Author of the upcoming book, The Reinvented Woman, The Best Ways to Enjoy Life to the Fullest Without Sacrificing Your Femininity. Last weekend, I went to a Relax and Renew Retreat with Mike Cohen and Mindy Arbuckle in Manitou Springs, Colorado. I learned so much about how to deepen my connection with my true essence and gained so much inner peace from the retreat. Mindy’s yoga classes helped me feel more free in my body and Mike’s kirtan sessions allowed me to feel calm, centered and tuned into my divine presence. I loved how Mike and Mindy sang together and offered us wonderful meditations. They chose one of the most beautiful and cozy locations to host the retreat too. The food was awesome, the rooms were great and there was a lot of opportunity to be in natural landscapes. I’d recommend anyone who wants to relax, get centered and meet sweet people, go to a retreat with Mike and Mindy…they took fantastic care of me!”
— Lila Gonzalez, coach, author, speaker, yoga instructor

“Thank you so much Mike and Mindy for a beautiful retreat! I was excited to go on this retreat as I really needed a chance to get away, connect with other amazing individuals, do some self-inquiry and RELAX. This retreat absolutely addressed all of those areas. The facility was amazing with comfortable rooms, welcoming staff, beautiful property & farm and the most amazing food! Mike and Mindy offered beautiful workshops of chanting, meditation, yoga and discussion. I learned so much about he deities and how I can work with these powerful energies in my life. I was really able to identify some areas in my life that needed to be addressed in order to truly create the life I desire. After this retreat I returned home completely motivated to remove the barriers in my life and take some huge steps in my business and my life which I was too afraid to do before hand. I highly recommend this retreat to anyone that is looking to find expansion in their lives through yoga, meditation, myth and sacred chanting!”
— Shanna Tabatcher – coach, yoga instructor
