What will the retreat include?
Luxury Glamping AccommodationExperience fully unplugging at KitFox. KitFox is a luxury glamping resort nestled in 160 private acres, within a 10,000 acre nature preserve, just 20 minutes from Santa Fe, New Mexico. Every day, the sunrise and sunset battle it out for the most breathtaking hour of the day. Being here is like being a world away, while still enjoying the comforts of a luxury experience. Each participant will have their own luxury glamping tent, gorgeously appointed with premium bedding, and full access to all the KitFox resort amenities (including newly installed gorgeous bathrooms!). Shared tents at a reduced price are also available, please email for more information ([email protected])
True disconnectionThis experience is intentionally free of digital devices, with all of the connection being with yourself, with nature, and with each other. You’re welcome to carry your phone to take photos, but there’s no television or wifi here (and very limited cell signal). You’ll learn how liberating it is to invest in yourself, knowing you won’t be interrupted by emails, notifications or texts. (Emergency contact is continuously available onsite).
Incredible Farm to Table Meal experiencesIncredible Farm to Table Meals

" What an amazing experience! I've never done anything like this before, so wasn't sure entirely what to expect. It was the perfect balance of curated activities and choose-your-own adventure in a breathtaking setting. " - Cole K.
" I lived an alternate reality a few weeks ago in the desert of New Mexico. It was a weekend of yoga, Tai chi, sound baths, reiki, drum circles, all of the delicious foods and drinks, reading, sun bathing, writing, donkey laughs and HATS. I met some of the coolest women and got reacquainted with myself. 10/10 - would do it again. " - Megan H.
Mindfulness Incubator Digital Detox and Renewal Experience at a Glance*
Arrive & Release
Day 1 is about unplugging, and is focused on you transitioning as quickly and fully as possible into rest, renewal and relaxation. Turn off your devices and pick up your welcome gift bag. Discover your luxury Glamping accommodation and all that the KitFox property on the Galisteo Preserve has to offer. Join our welcome contemplation, where we reflect on what we’re ready to leave behind, and what we most want to get out of our experience. Then, the Dig & Serve team welcomes us to a shared table for an incredible meal featuring local and seasonal ingredients from New Mexico. Our evening concludes with a sunset drum circle, inviting us to let go of the chatter in our minds in favor of a shared beat. Stick around and chat with your fellow participants, or slip back to your tent and be enveloped by a cocoon of comfort in your luxury glamping tent.
Renew and Restore
Day 2 is all about relaxation and pampering. We can choose to greet the day with a morning meditation and mindful yoga session, or sleep in instead. Enjoy local craft coffee made to order, or opt instead for one of the wonderful local teas. Enjoy a wonderful breakfast made fresh whenever you're ready. Convene for a workshop focused on building space and resilience. A mindful hike and picnic lunch will cultivate our ability to be fully present. Whether you choose to participate in the optional additional massage or energy work treatments or not, your day will be deeply restorative. We’ll conclude our day with another unforgettable Dig & Serve sustainable farm to table dining experience.
Inspire and Discover
Day 3 is all about creating a compelling vision for our life. In the morning, we once again are invited to greet the day with yoga and meditation. We are invited to explore new avenues of mindfulness and presence as we explore sound healing and breathwork. During the afternoon, we’ll have a workshop focused on intentional living and goal setting, and wrap up with an optional cocktail session and discussion on the goal setting activity. We wrap up Day 3 with an evening celebration, and enjoy the Sunset with another incredible Dig & Serve meal and a spectacular live music performance.
Sustain with Intention
As the sun rises on our fourth day, we are feeling more rested, more focused, more joyful and more purposeful. We once again start the day with mindful movement. We spend some time together exploring priorities and how we set them, and how we can set ourselves up for success. When it's time to leave, we feel rested, replenished, and excited to tackle what's ahead.

What our retreat guests are saying...
Rachael M - Product Growth Director, Meta
"After a couple challenging months at work and living in the "baby years" during a pandemic, I found the Mindfulness Incubator Reset and Renewal retreat just at the right moment! Despite not knowing anyone and glamping in the New Mexico desert being a bit out of my comfort zone, I needed something bold to challenge myself and to give me time and space to reflect. The retreat ended up exceeding my expectations, from the gorgeous venue with amazing food and service beyond anything I've ever experienced, to meaningful and fun experiences, to the guided reflections to bring back into my day to day life, to the amazing community built in just a few short days. Highly, highly recommend taking the time for invest into yourself - I'll be back next year!"
Cole Nussbaumer Knaflic, founder & CEO of storytelling with data
“What an amazing experience! I've never done anything like this before, so wasn't sure entirely what to expect. It was the perfect balance of curated activities and choose-your-own adventure in a breathtaking setting. The accommodations were immaculate and well appointed. The food was amazing: so fresh and bright. The level of attention to detail all around was super impressive. I returned to life feeling physically and mentally renewed after an amazing few days in the desert!”
Julie Herres, Owner GreenOak Accounting
"I was ready for a break from the hustle & bustle of work and family obligations and I sure got it! After three nights at the Mindfulness Incubator Digital Detox & Renewal Retreat I felt like I'd just had an entire week away. The activities were wonderful. I loved them all and got to experience things I wouldn't have sought out for myself like a Sound Bath experience and reiki.
I'm not a camper, but the accommodations were wonderful and comfortable. I simply can't say enough about the food and the hospitality of the Kitfox staff. Everything was well thought out (like extra blankets and phone chargers in each tent) and I slept incredibly well.
It was so nice to have no responsibilities for a few days and just relax and rejuvenate. I can't wait to attend again!"
Sarah M. - Marketing & Communications at Google
"The Mindfulness Incubator retreat was a revelation -- the perfect amount of time away to give me the space I needed to dive deep into my own personal wellness journey. The variety of teacher-mentors and disciplines explored was incredible! I felt supported by everyone, including the amazing women who joined the journey alongside me. The accommodations (KitFox) and food experience (Dig & Serve) absolutely delivered - I felt so taken care of by the entire group. Thank you, Mindfulness Incubator, for creating an experience to remember... I can't wait to come back!"
Kelly M., Founder & Entrepreneur (Pier Collective & Buttnski)
"Wow. This experience was beyond what I could have imagined when I committed to setting aside a long weekend of rest and rejuvenation. Like many of us, it's difficult to imagine setting aside time to get away and unplug. I was looking most forward to the digital detox part of the experience and time to quiet my mind and turn inwards. First of all, the location and physical amenities of Kit Fox are stunning and immaculate. You would never know you're in the middle of a desert with how clean everything is, including the bathrooms, showers, common areas and glamping tents. The Kit Fox staff goes above and beyond to make sure you feel cared for, and the love they put into every part of the experience is evident from the details in how they source, cook, plate & serve every meal to the way they have thoughtfully designed every detail of the aesthetic to ensure maximum comfort and relaxation. The experiences of daily yoga, meditation and sound healing were so peaceful for my body and mind. On top of it all, Stephanie is an incredible facilitator who lead us through practical exercises that we can apply in our everyday life to improve the quality of our life and relationships day to day. This retreat was the perfect harmony of unplugging, resetting, connecting to other beautiful humans and nature and getting back in touch to the most important parts of life. I highly recommend that everyone make time for this experience to prioritize yourself and your health."
