* Elemental JOY: A Dances of Universal Peace retreat


Big Idea:  
How do we sustain ourselves with what is ours to do unless we continue to connect with our innate sense of JOY and Creativity? If we don’t take time to do this, life can become a burden and we may lose sight of why we are here to live. You are invited to a weekend retreat with the Dances of Universal Peace and the Four Elements to reignite your Inner Joy.

Retreat Leaders:

Sessions will be curated by Morgan Rivers, Conie Borchardt, Jen Friedman, and Saleem Adam Wolter with assistance from dance leaders and musicians of the region. (Are you a dance leader/musician who would like assist? Here's information for you!)


Retreat Schedule: Friday, April 24-Sunday, April 26, 2020
The Dance Retreat begins on Friday evening with dinner at 5:30 p.m. and continues through lunch on Sunday. There will be dance sessions Friday evening; Saturday morning, afternoon, evening; and Sunday morning.


Retreat Registration:
Early Bird Registration ($125) for the full weekend is available until Feb 29, 2020, midnight. After this date, the full weekend is $150. 

Registration link will be open on January 1, 2020.


Retreat Location:
The retreat location is the lovely Newton Christian Conference Center just outside of Newton, Iowa.


Retreat Meals:
A 6-Meal package starting with Friday dinner and ending Sunday lunch will be $60 for the retreat.

Individual meals can be purchased at $12 per meal.

The center will accommodate gluten-free and vegetarian preferences with 30 days advance notice; by March 20, 2020 for our group. For other dietary restrictions, please give us at least 30 days advance notice (early March preference) and our liaison, Mary Ann, will make a request. If they cannot accommodate, they will provide refrigeration and a microwave if you’d like to bring your own food.


Retreat Lodging Options:
Rooms are available for $80 per night in the Lodge. Rooms include two double beds and private bath.

Last year, the 12 lodge rooms were soldout and we imagine they will go quickly this year too.  Please consider sharing your room with another attendee.

To rent the Burright Bunkhouse, we need a 10-person commitment for Friday and Saturday nights by January 20, 2020. It is $300 per night or $30 per person, per night. Note: Burright has a kitchenette with no stove.

Information for lodging available off-campus will be posted when lodge rooms are sold out.

RV and tenting options are also available.
  • 4 full RV hookup sites, each $25 per night
  • Unlimited tenting sites, each $10 per tent per night
