I have had the miraculous honor of sharing this Holy Land with you, God and nature. The pure joy of setting aside all "civilized" thinking and behaviors is not only fabulous, but I have found it essential. I will carry my new-found wildness with me forever. And you can trust that I will be back for a fresh dose whenever possible. This is Real Living!
~Dawn Crystal Kleuser of Mid Missouri
I am full of gratitude for the blessing of being here at The Holyland. The incredible rocks, and trees with their dancing leaves shaken free by the breezes playing those trees like a harp. The insect symphony. The blue herons. The creeks. The quiet beauty... Miriam Rose of Portland Oregon
Thank you for providing such a wonderful, loving place for me to
learn and grow. --Richard
I really enjoyed the Blue Moon retreat and would absolutely do this
sort of retreat again and again. It brought me joy to observe my sister-friends
who were on their first visit to the holyland. Each mama brought love
and stories and an open heart. We stayed up late into the night eating
chocolate, sharing current life concerns, lighting candles, nursing
babies back to sleep and blessing each other in a circle of held hands.
Our stew was delicious. Our free bodied swim with the boys a delight!
Blue Moon gave us an opportunity to know each other on a deeper level.
I have a new respect for each woman and look forward to spending more
time with them all in our home town. I look forward to returning to
the holyland once again full of gifts and full of love! Gratitude and
blessings, -- Alysia
Blue Moon Retreats are special retreats designed by a small group
of like minded people. Below is a wonderful example of a group of mothers
and their babies who enjoyed time celebrating motherhood and communing
with one another and the holiness on The Holyland.

Traditional Style Sacred Circle Tipi
and Renew your spirit in our Traditional Style Sacred Circle Tipi!.
Come alone, with your family or with a small group of friends.
Our tipi is located in a meadow with a fire circle by a stream
in the Ozark Mountains of Missouri. Enjoy the ancient traditions
along with the modern amenities of our companion guest cottage,
Casita, with whirlpool, sauna, sitting room and small kitchenette.
It is being used for Spiritual Gatherings, Personal Retreats and
our famous Blue Moon Retreats. Blue Moon retreats became popular
as small groups of people with common interests began to schedule
time together and found the Tipi and Casita the perfect place.
For reservation contact us: email@example.com
or 573.348.6288. Our Tipi door is open to you.
Do naught with the body but relax
Shut firm the mouth and silent remain
Empty the mind and think of naught
Like a hollow bamboo.
Rest at Ease the Body
Giving Naught nor Taking
Put at Rest the Mind
