Getting Here: Still Meadow Retreat Center

Our next Lift Off Retreat will be held in Portland at Still Meadow Retreat Center on September 13 – 16, 2012.

Still Meadow Retreat Center is a gorgeous and grounded retreat center about 15 minutes outside of Portland, Oregon. We choose facilities in restorative locations away from the hustle and bustle of cities so we can all take a while to breathe, relax, and get down to business. Yes, it’s an odd harmony, but it works.

The slideshow below will give you a good feel for the place.

Got Special Dietary Needs?

We’ll be sending out a dietary requirements form as part of the intake process, so we’ll make sure we’ll provide safe and healthy food for you. Still Meadow is suited to handling special diet requests.

We were especially delighted about the quality and quantity of food available when we held Lift Off 2 at Still Meadow in 2010 and Lift Off 4 in 2011. You won’t be hungry and most of the food is made from scratch using local and organic products.

Historically, Lift Off participants are concerned about whether they need to bring food and snacks. We’ve found that after about 15 minutes, the nervousness of a new event and people has subsided and it’s a non-issue. If you know that you will want or need certain foods or drinks though, please do feel free to bring it along with you.
