Contemplative Retreat

A contemplative retreat in nature is a space where in the calm there is an opening of mind and heart - one's whole being - where one has the opportunity to be at peace and go through a process of interior transformation.

In many cases, modern contemplative practices serve as a bridge in East/West dialogue for all cultures and deeper understanding of ones Self and how one relates with the world and others.

Retreats provide us with an opportunity to take a step “sideways” out of our normal routine and create an environment in which we can deepen our relationship with nature, with others and ourselves.

The Kelly Gallery Gardens Retreat was designed by photographer and artist Kelly Daniels over the last 25 years. Located on the edge of Blue Valley River, with scenic views of open fields, sunrises, and wildlife like turkey and deer.
