Recently, we hosted a special retreat weekend with a non-profit group close to our hearts. The retreat focused on healing for spouses who have been widowed as a result of veteran suicide. We’re honored to offer Bliss Farm and Retreat as a space for this cause and as a veteran of the Marines, the experience hit close to home and brought tears to my eyes.
The harshness of winter and early spring is the time of year when we’re most likely to be susceptible to the colds and flus that seem to be constantly “going around.” For that reason, we would love to offer the recipe for our beloved “Ninja Soup.” This is a great recipe to stimulate the immune system, nourish the soul, and simply produce a palpable coziness from the inside.
Sometimes the winter lasts longer than you ever thought possible. Here we are, in the last 2 official weeks of the season, and temps rise, then dip. Daffodils, snowdrops, and crocuses bravely reveal themselves only to be punished with frost. So how can you restore yourself during this time of transition, sometimes fraught with pain or bleakness?
2018 was a milestone year in terms of growth and expansion for Bliss Farm and Retreat. We know this next year will be equally monumental, and we thought these cold January days would be the perfect time to reflect on how far we’ve come and where we plan to go!
Western North Carolina’s favorite mountain retreat center just got a little bit dreamier! We’re pleased to announce the completion of the Bali Bliss cabin, which is Bliss Farm & Retreat’s newest eco-friendly, luxurious, and consciously curated accommodations in Barnardsville, NC, near Asheville.
The ancient mountains surrounding Bliss Farm & Retreat are famous for offering peace, restoration, and inspiration, making them the perfect backdrop for retreats facilitated here. If you have a vision to lead a retreat hugged by these mountains in a peaceful, holistic setting, our center may be the perfect fit.
At Bliss Farm and Retreat, we focus on creating a lifestyle that supports the totality of human health, placing equal value on physical, mental and emotional well-being. Scientific evidence and spiritual teachings across many cultures share a common truth when it comes to living optimally and healthfully: we cannot attain desirable physical health without also tending to our emotional and mental needs.
We knew we wanted to add more cabins to our property from the moments we founded Bliss Farm & Retreat and began offering peaceful, nourishing experiences to our guests. In 2016, our dreams of creating a retreat center came true after meticulous planning, farming, studying, and building. Now in our 2nd successful year, we could not be more thrilled to expand the accommodations at Bliss Farm & Retreat with Bali Bliss, our newest guest cabin!
