Taking place in the stunning desert landscape outside of Santa Fe, NM, this five-day retreat is designed especially for those who have taken Philip’s weekend workshop, and would like to deepen their experience. The retreat is not a repeat of the practices of the weekend workshop, nor of the year-long TEPP Facilitator Training, but offers an array of new practices, new ways of discovering how the body’s intelligence can illuminate your life. These practices gently, patiently and playfully move you beyond merely “listening to the body” and introduce you to the freedom of uniting with its intelligence. When you inhabit the body in that way, you seamlessly join the world, landing in the intimacy and nourishment of the present. The skills you develop over these five days will serve you for a lifetime.

About Synergia Ranch
Synergia Ranch has been operating as a Center for Innovation and Retreats since 1969. The ranch was purchased as a quarter section of the old Byrne Ranch that was acquired in 1926 as part of the Homestead Act, the original Warranty Deed having been signed by Calvin Coolidge. The original ranch of 640 acres was operated as a dairy farm. It passed through the hands of a couple of owners and then was purchased by Charles Taylor who, in 1967, split the section into a 160 acre parcel with the 480 remaining acres being formed into what is now the Silver Hills Ranch Subdivision. Taylor used the existing original barn and building facilities as a quarter horse ranch.
Accommodation & Food
All but three rooms are private with external common bathrooms and shower rooms. Most rooms have Queen beds. Three rooms have private bathrooms and are available on a first-come first-served basis.
Food is lovingly and creatively prepared by the wonderful chefs at Synergia. The food will be mainly vegetarian with gluten-free options for breads and granola. When chicken and fish are offered, there will also be vegetarian options.Participants should bring their own bread or granola if they have seed or nut allergies as the cook cannot guarantee that there are no seeds or nuts in breads and granolas. All soups will be vegetarian stock with no dairy and will also be gluten- free.
