MorningStar Community is happy to offer a variety of Retreats on the Holyland. A lovely spacious meadow nestled within the Ozark Mountains of mid-Missouri is the site for our semiannual Yoga Retreats. The natural beauty supports the holy practices of spiritual expansion within personal disciplines. Our yoga retreats are a harmonious blend of education, shared experience and inspirational renewal.

Visit our photo gallery for more pictures of MorningStar Community and the Holyland.

Vinyasa yoga is taught with special attention given to individual needs and questions. People who are pregnant, aging and/or who have special needs are welcomed and not discouraged.

Our caring and devoted staff enjoys offering you an experience that both enlivens your body and enlightens your soul. Each retreat includes yoga asanas, pranayama, meditation, introductory Sanskrit, and ample time for private practice and personal renewal.

We limit our yoga retreat participants to ensure that everyone receives personal attention – the unique gift of our retreats.

Our Sanskrit class is offered in communion with Yogic philosophy. “Sanskrit Made Simple” is a flip-card packet created by MorningStar Community that provides Sanskrit translation, explanation and spiritual significance for your personal yoga practice.


The wealth of expertise within MorningStar Community Staff includes specialty areas of Ayurved, pulse diagnosis, Rolfing, therapeutic massage, wellness therapies, and spiritual direction. Private consultations are available. Fees are separate.

Pre-retreat chanting, prayer and meditation for World Peace is voluntary and open to those who arrive early. Although the beautiful Holyland is the primary location for our retreats, alternate sites may be used during inclement weather.

May the Simple and Sacred Lead Us to a More Peace-Filled Planet.

MorningStar Community is an intentional, ecumenical community founded by a Cherokee Hermitess and Catholic mystic. Our mission is to preserve and protect the simple and sacred through instinctual living, educational experiences, spiritual direction, personal disciplines, and collective and individual spiritual retreats. Our vision is thus: we honor the wildish nature by finding sacred and encouraging in our selves and our kinsters the ways of instinctive knowing, of inner growth and spritual expansion and the passing on of wisdom through ritual and storytelling. We strive for world peace and global solidarity. While on the Holyland we uphold these principles: peaceful ways, not harming or forcing life, vegetarian lifestyle, gratitude/gratefulness, cherishing life, valuing relationships, simplistic living, loving as our divine spirit loves.
