We are located 3 miles south of Madrid up a 2-mile unmaintained dirt road, so please plan accordingly during wintry weather.

Madrid is a cool artist town, just 30 minutes south Santa Fe and 1 hour north of Albuquerque.

Location

Madrid, New Mexico, United States

We are located off the world-famous Turquoise Trail, just 5 miles south of Madrid up a 2-mile dirt road.

Please make sure to use Shanti Community Retreat on Google Maps to save frustration and arrive in a good mood.

Please DO NOT enter any of our neighbor's private driveways or property at any time.

Our two-mile unmaintained dirt road is similar to most US Forest Service roads one might use to access beautiful backcountry and pristine wilderness areas. Please plan accordingly, especially during wintry weather. Take the road slow, crank up an awesome playlist, and enjoy the ride.

Once you get here you can breathe in the fresh air of the sunniest state in the US. The views are epic and the vibes are relaxing and slow.

Hi, I'm Shelly, an off-grid, high desert, yurt dwelling, artist, musician, traveller and lover of life! The ten acres where our converted school buses and yurts reside is on a mesa a few short miles from the artist village of madrid, new mexico. Going to sleep and then waking to the sound of coyotes, owls, and nearby roosters, with 360 degree views is magical beyond description. Hiking on the land is incredible, and so are the sunsets and sunrises! Madrid has fabulous restaurants and 30 plus galleries with only 300 residents. The eco friendly off-grid land where we live and are passionate about sharing, offers the best of both.... peaceful privacy and community. Bri is my partner in life and in business and is Shanti’s other host. Up at Shanti, Bri teaches restorative yoga for anyBody, hosts a 200-hr YTT called emBodied Yoga School of NM, facilitates yoga retreats, and offers thai yoga massage. Her background is in wilderness therapy and she is excited to be a part of the team! We both look forward to connecting with you and helping to make your stay as memorable as possible!

During your stay
During winter months, Shelly & Bri travel to awesome backcountry settings around the country.

In the meantime, our family of caretakers (Jonesie, Russ, Lucas, & Alex) aim to provide any support you might need, such as delivering more firewood for your wood stove on wintry nights (your space comes readily supplied with 2 bundles for a $10 charge, payable in advance) or supplying more drinking water during longer stays.
