Retreats with Lori

Lori Lipten is an international retreat facilitator who brings an intuitively centered mind-body-spirit approach to your experience.


Lori leads local and international retreats, that bring a unique spiritual dimension to your wellness and rejuvenation experience. As a retreat leader, Lori’s compassionate, Spirit-led style, allows every participant to feel honored and served throughout their sacred journey.  Her focus is on deepening one’s encounter with soul, mind and body from the inspired heart of compassion. Lori helps normalize intuition for every person, while providing a safe environment for spiritual attunement, healing blocks and resistance patterns; enhancing self-awareness, forgiveness, intuitive connection and one’s connection to soulful living.  Lori specializes in facilitating deep restoration and renewal for:  those who have experienced loss; healthcare professionals; caregivers; spiritual seekers; intuitive and shamanic practitioners; and anyone ready for restoration, healing and renewal within a supportive, compassionate and sacred environment.

As a shamanic medium and psychotherapist, Lori brings a unique perspective to her retreats. Each one will include some time in silent reflection, intuitive processing, connection with nature, deliberate self-care, mindfulness, creative expression, nourishing food, meaningful connections and fun. Lori’s retreats almost always include some time for spontaneous messages to be shared from Spirit, depending on the setting and intuitive flow of the group.  Each retreat addresses the needs of mind, body and spirit often incorporating  yoga or sacred movement, combined with pranayama (breath-work). Lori works collaboratively with Spirit to ensure every facet of the retreat serves the highest good of all participants.

Every location for Lori’s retreats are selected in collaboration with her Divine helping Spirits. Each place is designed to bring about deep connection with the soul, higher awareness and the healing properties of the land chosen for your retreat. Lori will guide you on how to connect with the unique energies of the land and the associated helping Spirits who are eager to serve the purpose for your retreat experience.

GETTING THERE and other tips: 

  • Retreat participants can fly directly into Sedona Airport, Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport or Flagstaff Pulliam Airport.  You may want to rent a car and coordinate this with fellow retreat participants to ease your way. The drive from Phoenix or Flagstaff are both scenic. Details on Resort travel arrangements will be posted here.
  • Lori advises adding on an extra day before and after the retreat to enjoy surrounding national parks, check in early or stay longer to extend your retreat experience and give yourself time to acclimate to time zone changes and/or integrate your retreat experience.  Ask the resort directly about availability to extend your stay.
  • Please be sure you arrive in plenty of time to check in, get settled and begin with the group at the start time of the retreat.
  • Commit to the full retreat experience by planning to arrive early and stay through the end. Do not plan to leave the retreat early. Giving yourself a retreat experience is a sacred encounter between you and the Divine. You deserve the full experience. Consider that leaving a retreat early is like getting up from a massage 20 minutes before it ends.  If you leave early, you minimize the full experience and diminish the value of your retreat time. To get the full value of your retreat experience, plan your stay to ensure you are there from the start through the closing of the retreat and have time to integrate before returning home. Doing so will nourish you well beyond the actual retreat. You are worth this investment.
  • Due to the high demand for this retreat, and the extensive planning, all payments are non-refundable.  Thank you for your understanding!
