Hidden Lake Retreat is the living expression of Lauri and Judith’s long-held dream. Purchased in 2005, the rustic 1912 farm house and seven-acre grounds, were transformed over several years into the sanctuary and retreat center it is today. Vibrant wild life (such as beaver, river otter, salmon, deer, coyote, bobcat and over 40 species of birds), a host of cedars and other native trees, a holly orchard and seventy-five-year-old rhododendrons grace this special land. Only 50-minutes from downtown Portland, Oregon, this gem provides a safe haven for regularly-scheduled or extended healing. The Main Lodge, Barbara D. Studio, Infrared Sauna, Yurt, Lake, Cottage, and grounds offer expansive refuge for exploration and transformation.
Thank you both for all the wisdom, tenderness and poetry you gift us all with. What a pleasure to see you both living your sacred paths and sharing it so openly with all of us! I plan on returning regularly!
Thank you for welcoming me, and all of us, so fully. Your place shows your willingness to share, your love of beauty, your connection to Earth... Everywhere, there are gifts; nurturing food; flowers, art, and colors that feed and inspire; a sense of being present and knowing we will be greeted warmly when we return...
Dear Judith and Lauri: It's been nearly a month since my retreat and the peace and nourishment of that amazing time is still large inside me. The breakthroughs I made … while at Hidden Lake have continued to blossom and grow and I'm so excited about what is emerging…. You are both so gifted and have nurtured the magic that is Hidden Lake in such a beautiful way. Thank you for everything you made possible for me.
Dear Lauri--I am greatly shifted... I've actually had two different people who didn't know about my healing, or the retreat, comment about "my energy" being noticeable... I've noticed a lightness of being and a sense of peacefulness like I've never felt before... it feels a little bit like emptiness, but not loss or sadness. It's more like an openness.
Judith, thank you so much for offering this retreat space... I think you and Lauri have created the perfect place for people to come and reconnect with that part of themselves, the part from which all healing begins. I hope to be back here soon.
Dear Lauri-- I am doing great after our weekend together. Sounds and songs are coming to me often, and I find myself using music to connect to spirit in a way I didn't previously understand... Big changes for sure! I am so grateful. Thank you for your beautiful teaching and guidance, and for facilitating the opening of this door for me...
Dear Judith... I knew the place you would create with Lauri would be something out of a dream. And it’s true. I really have never been in a place so infused with that which heals and makes whole.
