If you are reading this page, you probably already know how nurturing it can be to spend time in nature. But spending time in WILD Nature, which has not been manicured into submission by human hands, can be an even more powerful experience!

We believe that Wild Nature provides a direct connection to the Divine. Our definition of the Divine is non-denominational and encompasses all spiritual practices that are based in Love, equality, and compassion for all Life.

The Center is located in Cascade, Colorado, directly beside US Highway 24. Spending time here provides an opportunity to develop the ability to mindfully use your senses to focus on the beauty that surrounds you, until the sounds of the everyday world fade away. This practice will serve you well when you return to your own environment, so you can connect to your Inner Serenity and Wisdom no matter what situation you encounter!

One of the unique aspects of Wild Divine Retreat Center is its fluid nature. Mother Earth frequently uses the forces of nature, including the creek that runs the full length of the 8.5 acre property, to re-sculpt the appearance of the land. You  are likely to find the hiking trails and other features different each time you visit the Center.                                                    

Current features include:

  • Labyrinth

  • Hiking trails

  • Mini-waterfalls

  • Fairy Ring

  • Meditation Casa

  • Creekside meditation spots

  • Sacred geometry meditation spot

The place is magical and the work Tamara does is so meaningful!
— Jenni Guentcheva, Green Thumb Initiativve

Wild Divine Retreat Center is not open to the General Public, but is reserved for clients through appointments and for guests by Invitation only. If you are interested in scheduling a session or attending an event, please contact the owners, Tamara McDougall Herl or Terence Herl.
