Retreat Center

A STAR Retreat is a genuinely transformative 10-day personal growth opportunity. It is a uniquely individual process done in a small group setting. After over three decades of experience, STAR is thought by graduates and therapists to be the most unique, powerful, personalized program of its kind. STAR stands alone among personal growth retreat workshops with its 1-to-2 staff-to-participant ratio. The remarkably large staff of diverse and experienced individuals provides you as a participant an unparalleled level of personalized attention. This creates an extremely individualized and tailored experience for you. Participants find they can work as deeply as necessary to rediscover a life full of real spontaneity, joy, and purpose.

STAR Retreats take place in beautiful Tubac, Arizona at Kenyon Ranch retreat, in the high desert grasslands and sweeping mountain ranges of just 45 minutes South of Tucson, AZ. You can find out more about Kenyon Ranch by visiting their website at

A STAR Retreat is suitable for a wide range of issues including self-esteem and relationship problems, professional or personal burnout, or a feeling of being stuck or trapped. STAR is ideal for those experiencing loss of meaning and purpose, significant life transitions, blocked creativity, grief and loss, anxiety, or depression. The STAR Retreat is also very successful in working with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, stress-related symptoms, adult attachment disorder, anger management, or addictive behaviors. 

The total fee for your STAR Retreat includes housing, food, the program, and your individual and group sessions. As of January 1, 2017, the 10-day retreat costs $4,295. This includes all meals, shared rooms, four to six hours of therapy per day, all materials and art supplies, and ancillary activities. Partial scholarships, based on financial need, are available on a limited basis.

Additionally, round trip shuttle shuttle service is available to and from Tucson International Airport for a fee of $150, which is inclusive of shuttle coordination, booking, and gratuity to driver. If you require shuttle service, inform staff of this upon registration. Payment for shuttle service is due 30 days prior to retreat.

Individual rooms are only available (at an additional cost) if there is a documented medical need.

While a STAR Retreat is in session, there are several body workers available for massage therapy. We believe that paying attention to the body is an indispensable part of the healing process, so we encourage each participant to schedule bodywork during their STAR Retreat. Massage therapy helps maintain body awareness, assists in the release of emotions which are stored within the body, relieves aching muscles and joints, increases freedom of movement, and helps to achieve a more balanced sense of self. Please note that there is an additional charge for this service.
