MP Ranch

July 7 - 13, 2024

Join us for a mid-summer workshop in a serene, remote location for creatives who seek peace, quiet, and focus offered by uninterrupted time to work on or complete creative projects. You can hole up and not see a soul other than at mealtimes, or you can take advantage of daily offerings designed to clear and unblock the body, mind and soul as complements to your creative work.

The Program

Daily practices (all optional) offer the opportunity to unblock and engage more fully with your inner creative and authentic self. These are followed by seemingly unending time and space to bring that freedom to your individual creative projects. 

These offerings include: movement yogic practices to unblock and clear the body, contemplative meditations to clear the mind, soundscape and evening meditations/nidra for peaceful relaxation, sunrise yoga, guided nature walks, cold cattle tank plunges in the heat of the day, and daily honoring of the directions to connect with the sacred and stark land that will ultimately be the guide and hold the creative process for each attendee.

We encourage and invite connection with the land and nature as a rich way of deepening into our inner nature, allowing more alignment with our creative truths. Nature is creative; nature is creation. Whenever we come back into more humbled and connected relationship to nature, we come back into a relationship with our creative channel.

Accommodations

The MP Ranch is located in the middle of nowhere, New Mexico, and there is nowhere better to engage with the inner whispers of your creative self. 

You will sleep in a comfortable room, eat delicious, nourishing meals three times a day prepared by a professional chef focused on organic, locally-sourced ingredients. You will have time to share your work with fellow retreaters if you wish, and most importantly, you will be supported in many different ways to remove any creative blocks you may be experiencing.
