Within each of us is a level of consciousness far deeper than thought. Our true nature, or purest self, is often obscured beneath layers of thoughts, judgments, and identities. When we sift through the layers and untether from the past and the future we can cultivate presence and experience connection.

Join Shannon Stephens and Alexis Persico of a Routed Connection for a week of present-moment living. Practice the art of observation through yoga and meditation, connect with your surroundings, develop self-compassion, and deepen your capacity to give and receive love.

There is ample time and space between our morning Vinyasa and evening Yin practices to explore and restore in the spacious embrace of the soothing and inspiring mountain landscape of the Ranch. Enjoy the company of others or seek solitude for reflection. We’ll gather for delicious meals and scenic day hikes, savor star gazing, and reflect and unwind together around the campfire. Expect to connect on a deeper level to yourself and to others.



“Routed Connection and the Yogis of Feathered Pipe, How do I begin to thank all of you for your presence and gift of connection? You provided space for growth and we expanded. You brought us to a beautiful space, and our eyes opened wide.

The land is healing and the majestic mountains remind us even in our smallness we are safe and more powerful than we can know. The people of Feathered Pipe make radical rainbows, heal with sound and touch, nourish our bodies with delicious food, and tell stories of purpose, miracles and Divine Spirit.”    ~ Aimee Andrews

Summer Vacation Tip! Extend your time in peace and beauty while savoring Western hospitality by exploring the great West’s national park treasures either before or after your Feathered Pipe experience with Shannon and Alexis. Glacier National Park is a scenic 3.5 hour drive north and west of the Ranch, while Yellowstone is just a 4.5 hours drive south and east of the Ranch through some of the prettiest Western territory you’ll ever see.
