A place to nourish your soul.
You’ll laugh with new friends as you stargaze under the brilliant, limitless blue sky, feeling serene and knowing that a mix of adventure, solo time, girl time and time to reflect & reconnect is exactly what you needed...
Ah, ...the endless delights of Taos!
Let us tell you more…
Did you know you’re the average of the five people you spend the most time with…
…so imagine the effect of four extraordinary days and nights in the exclusive company of grounded, heart-centered, and fierce women like you, sharing not only themselves, their collective wisdom and insights, but also embracing our individual intentions as we reflect, reconnect, and reimagine what’s possible for each of us.
Because together, we are SO much more than the sum of our parts.
Our Blue Sky Retreat is a true meeting of minds, hearts and soul-centered savvy mixed with time and space just for you so you can refill your proverbial cup.
And we all know we can’t pour from an empty cup. That’s why NOW is the time to uplift, uplevel and unleash our collective energy and intention into the world!
FIERCE is based on the belief that when women come together, something is created, something so strong, so powerful, we can only call it FIERCE and we have no choice but to break through what’s been holding us back from stepping into our full power.

Long one of America’s foremost, bona fide Art Colonies, Taos is also home to a world-class ski resort, a World Heritage Site, one of the most photographed and iconic churches (St. Francisco de Asis), and a majestic landscape encompassing the Rocky Mountains and the Rio Grande Gorge. Drawn by clean air and mythical light, visitors come to New Mexico's Soul of the Southwest to experience rich spiritual traditions, fine art, distinctive cuisine, a thriving music scene and of course, the raw, natural beauty of the landscape.
We’ll be spending four fabulous nights at the Blue Sky Retreat Center at the San Geronimo Lodge, a historic property built in 1925 that’s situated on 3.5 acres of natural serenity. It’s a signature New Mexico style adobe construction with a chili pepper-shaped swimming pool (so fun) & a hot tub, a yoga yurt, a Native American sweat lodge, a meditation path, a garden and a labyrinth.
Fruit trees abound the banks of the Acequia Madre which rambles through the grounds and many miles of the Carson National Forest are just a short walk away. Built in native adobe, the San Geronimo Lodge truly offers the best of both worlds- historic ambiance and charm with all the comfort and convenience of modern day accommodations.
Each one of the 18 uniquely decorated rooms has their own story from all the history that has lived there and in all of the rare treasures that occupy each nook and cranny. Every room also has its own full bathroom for your comfort and privacy.
There’s no doubt you’ll be going home with a piece of Taos and a special place in your heart for all the magic here.
What do we get to eat? This is definitely one of the most important questions…
From Green Chile Burgers to Buffalo Steak. All the outdoor activities around Taos result in ravenous appetites. Many chefs rely on local, organically-grown produce, offering fresh greens, herbs, tomatoes, tender green beans and baby squash. Taos was organic before organic was cool.
Several home style eateries serve popular local dishes such as tamales, enchiladas, chile rellenos and posole. Restaurant ambiance is as varied as the cuisine. Savor the atmosphere of an energetic, bustling, open-air kitchen or linger on a shaded garden patio.
We’ll dine out together on Friday night in Taos plaza! We chose not to include this meal in our retreat package so that everyone can choose whatever you’d like!
We’ll also have two “choose your own lunch” while shopping on solo time in both Taos & Sante Fe Plaza so you have the chance to indulge and immerse yourself in all the delicious flavors of New Mexico!
All other emails, including 3 dinners and all breakfasts/brunches will be prepared by Chef-Owner Marina! Meet her below!
