Offering therapeutic adventure experiences that deepen, strengthen, and nourish connection with one's self, community, and the natural world


Retreats vary in length from one to ten days and are facilitated in a diversity of settings, including Western North Carolina, Colorado, Patagonia, and more. Sparking creativity in Spring, nurturing rejuvination in Winter, exploring an international sense of community in the South American Summer; through all of these adventures you are invited to deepen your sense of self in relationship to others and the natural world.

Just like the roots of aspen trees, Aspen Roots Collective, PLLC is defined by its partnerships and collaborations with unique individuals. Facilitators and guides from different backgrounds come together to create courses and retreats that highlight their shared passion for communal healing and growth.
