Self Retreat

~ Retreat Yourself ~​

Treat yourself to your own solo retreat with yourself at Santa Fe Soul Sanctuary.


When Kali is not holding private retreats, Santa Fe’s self-contained cottage - with own entrance, kitchen, bathroom and access to the al fresco garden/ large salt water pool/sacred living labyrinth - can be booked for time out with yourself.


Some guests come to paint, meditate, finish writing a book, hike the surrounding mountains, swim in the crystal rock pools, shop for collectibles in the quaint village, or simply sleep in and read.  This precious time with yourself is an opportunity to slow right down and give yourself what you really, really want.


Come refresh, replenish and nourish your heart and soul.
