Crested Butte Retreat with Brave Recovery Sun and Moon Sober Living March 17, 2023

Hiking Retreat in Crested Butte, Colorado

 A Journey for Sober and Sober-Curious Women – Sept 14-17, 2023

Be Brave. 

I’m thrilled to be partnering up with Brave Recovery for this retreat in Crested Butte, a majestic mountain town in Colorado. This is an inclusive experience for sober and sober-curious women. Together, we will experience the life-giving benefits of moving our bodies in nature, breathing in fresh mountain air, practicing daily yoga & meditation and connecting with a like-minded community. 


When I spoke to Carrie, who created this incredible adventure and is the Founder of Brave Recovery, she shared with me that she had pretty much no hiking experience when she launched her first hiking retreat. But do you know what she did have? A willingness to take risks, be brave and listen to that inner call. And of course, it turned out to be a wild success! I hope that helps set the tone for what this experience will be about. Whether you have no hiking experience (yet!), or are a hiking enthusiast, this is an opportunity to step out of your daily routine and make lifelong sober friends.

Our Mountain Home in Crested Butte

Our luxurious retreat space is surrounded by gorgeous views of the mountains, which can be enjoyed from a spacious wraparound deck. We’ll have plenty of space to unwind between hiking, yoga and meal times, and end our days cozied up by the fireplace. Dinner will be prepared by a private chef.

The Nitty Gritty

The house is located in Crested Butte, Colorado.  The closest airports are Montrose Regional Airport and Gunnison Airport. You may also choose to drive from Denver International Airport (approx 5 hours). We will happily connect the group to arrange shared rides for the latter option!

This retreat is open to sober and sober-curious women. Our intention is to bring together a group with a shared interest in living alcohol-free. This retreat is not a replacement to addiction treatment and will not be suitable for those in active addiction.

You do not have to be an experienced hiker to join us, just a willingness to take it one step at a time. If you do have physical limitations or injuries, this is probably not the best retreat for you as it will be active.

Absolutely! We’ve created this experience in order to encourage connection and build community. Traveling solo is a great option to make new friends.
