A retreat experience like no other! You'll recharge your batteries, build skills, and leave inspired and renewed.
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." - Sarah M.
Are you tired of feeling overwhelmed and exhausted? Of being pulled in a million different directions? Of feeling like you're just going through the motions day after day, with barely any time to think, let alone take care of yourself?

This experience is for you if..
- You're ready to hit the reset button
- You recognize you're not being your best, and giving your best, and you're ready to change that
- You’re ready to reconnect to what lights you up
During this exclusive, intimate women's retreat, you will enjoy:
- Gourmet cuisine, three meals a day, every day
- Luxury glamping accommodation and amenities
- Exclusive workshops created to boost your resilience and reignite your passions
- Multiple modalities of contemplation, movement and relaxation
You’ll be inspired by the stunning natural beauty surrounding you, the insights you gain from the guided workshops, and the incredible women who are on the journey with you. You’ll walk away refreshed, with clear intention, and practical tools and insights to build your resilience.
It was like time stood still for a weekend - which was exactly what it was meant to do. For three days, the desert became my home, the other women became my community, and the hospitality of Kit Fox became serious goals for how to treat people. What a gift to be able to spend this time focused on yourself - and share that gift with others upon returning home. Thank you!
- Caren W.

"This retreat was a perfect way to disconnect from the day to day and allow myself to connect deeply with my internal compass and intuition. The surprise bonus was connecting authentically with a group of new friends in this shared experience in a beautiful setting: trading stories and perspectives. It was a true reset and re-grounding. A weekend that I will remember and treasure for a long time." - Brenda A.
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])
"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." - Julie H.
" The location and physical amenities of Kit Fox are stunning and immaculate." - Kelly M.
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).
"Being a business owner in digital media means that I am staring at a computer screen all day every day of the week, and this retreat gave me the rejuvenation that I truly needed." - Kayleigh M.
Incredible Farm to Table Dining experiencesDig & Serve is creating delicious sustainable meal experiences throughout the retreat. All breakfasts, lunches and dinners, as well as snacks are included. Mindfulness Incubator will also provide beer, wine, and a special cocktail experience, included in the retreat price. Our prior retreat participants *RAVED* about each and every meal. How can everything be so beautiful, so delicious, so decadent? It's like having one of the best meals you've had in a long time, every meal. Dietary preferences and restrictions can be accommodated.
"The food was amazing: so fresh and bright. The level of attention to detail all around was super impressive." - Cole K.
Curated workshopsYou’ll experience a number of intimate, exclusive workshops, focused goal and vision setting, creating habits and routines, and building resilience. These workshops are designed to provide actionable, practical insights that you can apply in your day to day life.
"The workshops are so well designed and with such intention- it's impossible not to walk away with some type of transformation that will add value to your days for the rest of your life. I'm so grateful to have been a part of this." - Mia S.
CommunityFor many of our past participants, the wonderful community was an unexpected favorite of the retreat experience. Learning from each other's life lessons, and laughing at our shared struggles was a highlight for us all.
“Anyone looking for a sense of community and deep nourishment would benefit from this retreat.” Sarah M
"(I) really enjoyed just the open conversation with like minded women.” Rachael M

" I'm so grateful for my experience at the Mindfulness Incubator Retreat. Not only was I able to unplug and focus on myself for the weekend, but I had the opportunity to do so with an amazing group of supportive women that I now can call my friends, and not to mention amazing food and the most thoughtful service. Forever grateful for the experience! "
" 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 Retreat 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. 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 deep renewal. Start the day enjoying local craft coffee (or opt for your own pot of delicious loose leaf tea) while the sun casts first light across the Galisteo basin. Move your body with gentle Yoga on the Yoga deck. Enjoy a wonderful breakfast made fresh whenever you're ready. Be transported to deep relaxation as the healing sounds of 31 Crystal Singing bowls serve as a gentle backdrop to your contemplation. A mindful hike and picnic lunch will cultivate our ability to be fully present. An interactive, guided workshop will lead you through setting an inspiring and compelling vision for your future. Whether you choose to participate in an optional additional massage treatment 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 inspiring you to become your best self, and live your best life, whatever that might be for you. In the morning, we once again start the day with piping hot tea of coffee, made to order. Join our Camp Host Jen on a guided hike of the local trails, and take in the natural beauty of this incredible preserve. We'll then explore Art as a modality for inspiration and release. During the afternoon, we’ll have a workshop focused on intentional living and goal setting. 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 start the day with mindful movement. We spend some time together exploring how we can integrate the resilience skills we have been cultivating in our day to day life, and how small habits will set us up for success and sustained change. When it's time to leave, we feel rested, replenished, and excited to tackle what's ahead with new friends, new intention, and new clarity.

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!"

“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, Best Selling Author
"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."
