“First, do no harm.”

We build retreats that support individuals in reclaiming their joy and vitality through the power of plants, presence, and perspective, all through the lens of trauma-informed care and the basic principle of “do no harm.”


With your physical, mental, and spiritual safety at the forefront, we create experiences to enrich and nourish the soul, while going deep to explore stress, trauma, and long-held patterns. Through the release of these imprints, we have the potential to become free in the energy body and return home to wholeness.


Our approach to preparation and integration is rooted in governing principles that form the backbone of our commitment to holistic healing and transformation.
It is through these guiding principles that we aim to create a space of profound empowerment and support for all who embark on this journey with us.

“Trauma is perhaps the most avoided, ignored, belittled, denied, misunderstood, and untreated cause of human suffering.”
Dr. Peter Levine

“Healing is a matter of time, but it is also
a matter of opportunity.”

Our commitment to care

At Ananda Lodge, we hold a deep belief that access to care and healing should be available to all, regardless of financial circumstances. To make healing accessible and inclusive, we offer a sliding scale for individuals who have experienced trauma.

Paying it forward

This compassionate approach extends to war veterans, first responders, healthcare workers, survivors of abuse, and those from traumatic or marginalized backgrounds. We understand the unique challenges that these individuals may face and are committed to providing them with the support and healing they need.

Access to healing

Our aim is to ensure that those who need healing the most have the opportunity to receive it, without financial barriers standing in the way. This commitment reflects our dedication to making a positive impact in the lives of those who have given so much and may be in need of care and restoration.

We view compassion as the cornerstone of healing. Compassion for self and others allows us to see beyond separateness and to forgive ourselves and fellow human beings.

We acknowledge that trauma-imprints are universal, with us each carrying wounds, visible or invisible. We acknowledge the power of being witnessed and the healing capacity available to us all.

With reverence, we bow to Mother Earth and to the plants that provide healing. In reverence, we bow to ourselves for the innate healers that we are, and to the Divine for the guidance on our journey.

We believe somatic embodiment creates a roadmap for lasting integration and healing. When we walk the path with wisdom, we are able to heal for the generations before, and those after us.

For, indeed, that’s all who ever have.”
