Retreat Center

Retreat Center

The Retreat Center was launched in the summer of 2020 as a response to COVID-19 and the desire to offer wellness retreats to health-care workers who may be looking for respite and renewal. We also took the opportunity to build on our leadership development programs for schools, corporate groups, medical teams, and faith communities who could utilize the open farm setting and ground-based horse interaction for building teamwork, trust, and professional growth.

Host-Your-Own Retreat/Workshop

Your organization may utilize the farm setting and the various meeting spaces to host your own Leadership, Board, or Yoga Retreat. Access to equine services and equine staff is also available. 

Please visit our Spring Creek Farm Venue for our facility rental information. »

Press/Recent Retreats

Please see the Recent News about our work with Southern Maine Health Care supported by a grant from Kennebunk Savings Bank through the Carlisle Charitable Foundation. (Equine-Based Retreat for Healthcare Workers Alleviates COVID-19 Traum)

A few reasons why attendees were compelled to sign up:

“I know there’s some healing and connectivity between horses and humans, I wanted to experience it.”

“Taking time to stop and breathe and get grounded again. I needed a rest and got so much more.”
