We are very happy to announce that Blue Heron's own Ashlee Dixon has co-founded and is leading adventure retreats with MAHA Retreats.  

The five day, four night retreat in Fall 2018 will be a quest to pursue wholeness through immersion into the ancient wisdoms of Yoga, Meditation, Thai Massage and Chinese Medicine - including acupuncture, herbs, nutrition and essential oils.  Exploring and combining these practices with adventure, playfulness and live music while reconnecting with nature will guide us toward a deeper level of healing.  Acroyoga practice will awaken our playful nature and foster effective communication as well as trust with others.  Together, we will reflect on the power of the natural world while rediscovering joy and inspiration, grounding and connection, healing and renewal, gratitude and compassion.  We will celebrate the new moon and fall equinox and the coinciding transition of elements in Chinese Medicine.  From the Earth element, associated with Late Summer, we will move into the Metal element, associated with Autumn.

Crestone Mountain Zen Center is a Buddhist monastery set at 8,400 feet in southern Colorado.  It is nestled among the rugged 14,000 foot peaks of the Sangre de Cristo mountains and surrounded by 240 acres of pinon pines and juniper forest.  The beauty and seclusion of the center's location paired with the simple, concentrated and nourishing atmosphere of the Zen monastic setting provide a special environment for contemplation, inquiry and reflection.  Reserve your spot for the next MAHA Retreat.

(No experience necessary.  Participation in any of the activities is optional.)

30 Day Meditation Challenge


Online, FREE


Our annual 30 Day Meditation Challenge begins November 1st.  Sign up here!

Do you ever crave slowing down?  Wonder why you're always feeling stressed and like you're giving 200%?  Want to bring mindfulness and gratitude into your daily life?  We invite anyone who would like to learn how to meditate or create a regular meditation practice to join us for this FREE challenge.

This is not a challenge as in a contest.  No one is keeping score; no one is judging you for how many meditations you do or don't do.  This is a challenge as in a "call" - to be more present, to know yourself better, to live more fully.  This is for you.

During the month of November, you will enjoy a daily email with a 10-20 minute meditation, health tips, recipes, art and reminders to embrace this moment.  This is a perfect time of year to take your stress level down a notch, be present in the moment with loved ones, and enhance gratitude in your life before the hustle and bustle of the holiday season begins.

We are grateful to our many friends who have contributed to this meditation challenge!
