Dates are set for the 2020 running of the Mindful Unplug! Spaces are limited and if this year was any indication, the program will fill very, very quickly. Register and pay the $500 deposit now to reserve your space at 2019 prices. Full description and complete Mindful Unplug guide team lineup will be updated soon, so please stay tuned!

This retreat rekindles skills, practices, and attitudes that cultivate easier navigation of this often-challenging human incarnation and help you sketch your very own map for more mindful living. You’ll slow down and savor an unfiltered experience of the Rocky Mountain landscape and the storied Feathered Pipe Ranch — the place that our dear friend Erich Schiffmann calls his “favorite place on the planet.” No prior experience with any of the modalities we’ll explore during the week is needed. This is a retreat for anyone and for everyone, so come as you are to pause, breathe, move, see, harmonize, and sense your way back into ease.

Our handpicked team of experienced guides offers practical, real-life skills to revive moment-to-moment awareness. We weave a calming balance of scheduled activities into stretches of unstructured time for you to settle into your natural rhythm. The intimate and uncrowded Ranch retreat venue — we host only one program at a time each week — offers as much opportunity for community as it does for solitude and personal space. Throughout, you’ll be surrounded by a scenic mountain locale, nourished by sumptuous fare, and cared for by our attentive staff.



Mindful Unplug - Mindful Sensory Awareness & Breath-Focused Yoga“You allowed me to discover your graces at my own pace. You have restored in me a newfound peace. I will be forever grateful for this week and I pray that I will be able to carry the lessons I have learned with this week with me for all my days on this earth.”

“It was a rich and varied experience — beautiful and meaningful activities, interactions with people, and physically and emotionally healing. The food, lodging, natural beauty, staff — it was all so nurturing and stimulating.”

“It was a deeply restorative experience for me. The beauty of the place, the ease of staying there thanks to the excellent staff, and the thoughtful instruction all combined to transform me. I see the world around me differently now.”

“Loved it! Wonderful setting, great instructors, very relaxing, and easy to unplug. The teachers are wonderful, approachable, and kind.

“I am thankful that I had time to myself on days that I craved seclusion and still plenty of chances to be in community and laugh (and cry!) with the others who were shared the week.”

“What a beautiful location to unplug. And what a wonderful, diverse, and fun group of people to experience the week with. Please continue The Mindful Unplug because I shall return!”

MINDFUL UNPLUG RETREAT TIP! Extend your time in peace and beauty while savoring Western hospitality by spending some time exploring the great West’s National Park treasures either before or after your Mindful Unplug week. Glacier National Park is a glorious and 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.
