Our Vision

 Our retreat center site is a stunning and joyous bird sanctuary.

As we build her we will carefully carve her out of these precious, uncut oak and cedar trees that hug a beautiful three acre pond. 


Sanctuary in the Woods is a nonprofit retreat and event center on a beautiful eight acre site, just twenty minutes east of Austin, Texas USA

​ We invite you to stay tuned to learn how you can become part of our vibrant and transformative community - both locally in Austin or globally through our web-based programming! 

We're Under Construction!

Upcoming Projects at the Sanctuary: 

Sanctuary will be an upscale high quality and comfortable meeting space with high-end IT capability, full food service, and lodging for 24+ people.

​Just as CLM has been a powerful transformational educational experience, Sanctuary will be a much-needed meeting space that will host transformational, educational, and powerful programming seminars, workshops, and experiences for groups and individuals.
