Since I live in a foggy, generally cool city, I looooooovvved being outside as much as possible in the warm dry heat of a new ecosystem. I appreciated so much the variety of outdoor activities and getting a chance to have the land wash over me. Don’t change a thing. -Jack N



The Grand Union Hotel, Fort Benton

You’ll stay at The Grand Union Hotel in Fort Benton, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. All rooms are smoke-free and come with deluxe private baths, WiFi, TV, and individual heat and air conditioning controls.

Food and libations

All meals are included in the price of the retreat. We’re tapping local chefs, and taking care to marry their attention to flavor with our heart for hospitality. Vegetarian or gluten-free meals are available if you have dietary preferences or constraints. Just let us know.

You’ll enjoy several meals under the prairie sky—a lunch by the river, a scone beside glacial rock formations, and a dinner overlooking a pasture favored by deer and elk.

Enjoy a well-crafted cocktail at the end of the day. Gratifying non-alcoholic options are available too.

Outdoor adventures

Get ready to activate parts of your mind that may have been hibernating for days, months, even years.

Past adventures have included:

  • Hands-on time with retired Clydesdale horses
  • Canoeing the Missouri River
  • Cliffside freewriting at the edge of an ice age lake
  • Taking a swim in a mountain creek

Brave conversations

Frontier Retreat opens space to ask yourself life-changing questions, and to gain insights through connection with like-minded friends. You’ll have conversations you wish you‘d had with yourself years ago.

Marc and Hannah take great care to create a safe space for conversation and to make sure you feel welcomed, seen, heard, and safe to explore what holds you back, to empower you to open new doors in your life. This is where we begin being more brave, and where joyful courage is born.

I loved the conversation, and found myself being surprisingly candid with people I didn’t know well. Trust-building out of the gate was amazing. -Jack N.


I have told several people that this was a life-changing experience, one that reinvigorated and re-energized me. I came back to work feeling Zen and more like myself than I had felt in years. I had more patience and more empathy, more passion and focus. If anyone is yearning to feel those things, to connect with others or reconnect with themselves, this retreat is a great way to do that. -Sara U
