Co-Create a Retreat

Plan Your Dream Retreat

Plan your ideal retreat with us! The Uplands offers optimal retreat flexibility, from highly structured schedules to unstructured days free of time-bound commitments.

Below is an example retreat weekend to give you a sense of the windows of time within which to co-create your retreat activities. We will happily collaborate with you to design a retreat agenda that optimizes your goals while honoring the need for ease and openness.

Facilitation support may be available, upon request.


“Like the calming cascade of the Upland’s natural surroundings, the cadence of the retreat days are peaceful, sprawling and inspiring.”

ANN RASMUSSEN | CO-FOUNDER, THE UPLANDS
