Toward 2012 Retreat
Toward 2012: Envision the Next Age
RS Retreat with Dennis McKenna, Charles Eisenstein, Daniel Pinchbeck, & More
For over a year now, you’ve shared your intrepid thoughts and dreams of a bold new world on the pages of Reality Sandwich. Now, join us in bringing these transformative visions into four stunning dimensions with our Reality Sandwich retreat! The four-day journey will feature talks, ceremonies, workshops, plant, herbal and primitive skill knowledge hikes, petroglyph and pictograph explorations, slot canyon adventures, yoga, music, meditation and more. We’ll explore topics ranging from sacred geometry to urban homesteading, plant medicines to open source economics, Gaian technology to galactic alignments, psychedelic revivals to spiritual activism -- all with our featured guests Dennis McKenna, Charles Eisenstein, and Daniel Pinchbeck.
This is your chance to connect and collaborate with the Reality Sandwich editorial crew in an intimate four-day gathering on ancient Anasazi land in one of the most beautiful spots in the American Southwest. Experience the community and engage in the conversation as we prepare for one of the most remarkable times in human history.
Talks, Workshops, and more Speakers TBA.

About the Boulder Mountain Guest Ranch
The Boulder Mountain Guest Ranch is operated by two RS directors, who have held many amazing and successful retreats on site over the last year. The ranch is located on 148 acres of breathtaking views overlooking the Grand Staircase- Escalante. The property is surrounded by two million acres of Dixie National Forest giving you all the serenity and beauty the area has to offer. Hiking (to a waterfall), observing nature and exploring an indigenous ecosystem can be done right from our property or you can take advantage of the wonders of the surrounding area. Access to Boulder Mountain Swells (highest peak 11,328 ft.) and the famous Boulder Mountain Hells Backbone Bridge is just a few minutes away.
Boulder Mountain with a 50,000 acre summit makes up half of the Aquarius Plateau, a heavily forested area that descends upon slick rock, slot canyons and desert grottos. You can experience five of the planet's seven 'life zones' in a 15 mile decent to 4,800 ft. elevation, as well as the largest biomass on the planet (an Aspen grove). National Geographic ranked this area as the third healthiest ecosystem on Earth. The ranch is one mile from the Northeast border of the Escalante-Grand Staircase National Monument which consists of 1.9 million acres of waterfalls, slick rock, sandstone and slot canyons, unique rock formations, palentology and cliff terraces. Anasazi and Freemont Indian dwellings, petroglyphs and pictographs scatter this wonderland that is chock-full of adventure, pristine landscapes and abundant wildlife.
The Boulder Mountain Ranch can be found approximatley 4.25 hours South of Salt Lake City Utah or about 5.5 hours Northeast of Las Vegas, Nevada, driving through Zions National Park and Bryce National Park (60 miles West), in Salt Gulch on the Hell's Backbone Road 3.5 miles west of Utah's Highway 12. It is just 7 miles Southwest from the small town of Boulder, Utah where you can find the Anasazi Indian State Park and the famous Burr Trail and very close to Capitol Reef National Park (40 miles East).
