The SoWE Experience

What to expect when you visit the Educational Retreat Center

From the moment you exit the highway and enter the gates, you will be immersed in nature.

The Mountain Jewel Educational Retreat Center is nestled in 450 acres of woodland, streams, and mountains.

You will arrive at the entrance to the facility via US 25/70. From there, a private road will take you to the arrival area and reception building where you will park your car and  charge your electric vehicle if needed. At the reception building, you and your luggage will be taken on an electric vehicles over the mountain to the main campus to the forest villas where you will enjoy your stay.

Woven into the wooded landscape on the main campus are 76 private forest villas nestled in the trees with calming views of the forest, mountains, and beyond. Each forest villa has its own screen porch for quiet reflection and contemplation.

The core village area has an auditorium, dining hall, event center, and fitness center. The Wholeness Sanctuary, which is our Healing Center with a Water Spa and amenities shop, is a short walk from the Core Village. The two main teaching buildings are walking distance from the core village located further up the mountain.

The land is threaded with trails to explore, offering many places for quiet contemplation where guests can connect more deeply with nature, such as the Reflecting Pond, Elemental Park, and Ceremonial Field.

Mountain Jewel has something for everyone interested in aligning with a deeper state of harmony with themselves, humanity, and the planet.

You will leave Mountain Jewel feeling Whole and more connected to your Heart and Soul.
