Location and Accommodations
Northern New Mexico is a high desert landscape with very dry air and high altitude. Albuquerque is approximately 5,000’, Santa Fe is approximately 7,000’, and Truchas is approximately 8,000’ above sea level.
The retreat will be held at Truchas Peaks Place on the scenic High Road to Taos in Truchas, New Mexico. At the midway point between Santa Fe and Taos, Truchas is easily accessible from either city, yet affords the peacefulness and pristine natural surroundings of a secluded retreat. Truchas Peaks Place is part of the Spanish colonial village of Truchas, settled in 1754 and now a vibrant community of locals of Hispanic origin, artists, and craftspeople.

The Main House is 12,000-sq ft., newly constructed with local adobe materials in the pitched-roof style of the region. Cool in the summer, warm in the winter. Radiant heat warms the floors, gas fireplaces in the common areas and the second-floor suites supply extra warmth and ambiance.
There is a large gourmet kitchen, a dining room that seats 30, multiple meeting rooms and gathering areas, a covered wrap-around porch on the ground level, and balconies on the second level. The second floor is home to a grand library that contains over 10,000 volumes from the libraries of Jungian analysts, Donald Kalsched and Robin Van Loben Sels.
There are 10 bedroom suites, most with two beds (queen or single), some with an additional trundle bed. The rooms are elegantly appointed with high-quality mattresses, down pillows, and luxurious linens along with a desk, chairs, a wardrobe closet, and towels. Six suites have private bathrooms and four suites share two bathrooms.
Three rooms are also available in Opus House with one queen bed and either a private or shared bathroom. These will be available as singles for an additional fee.
A local personal chef will provide all of our meals, prepared onsite. The retreat will include a Thursday evening welcome reception and dinner; Friday breakfast, lunch, and dinner; Saturday breakfast, lunch, and dinner; and Sunday breakfast. Hot tea, coffee, iced tea, and water will be available throughout the day. A variety of fresh fruit as well as nuts, dried fruit, snack bars, a combination of savory and sweet crackers/chips will be set up for participants to access between morning and evening meals. I will check in with you regarding any special dietary needs.
