Music, Laughter, Connection and Love

A Weekend Retreat with Karen Drucker
Santa Fe, NM  .  Date TBA 


Join singer-songwriter, author and workshop facilitator Karen Drucker for a unique women’s retreat in one of the most iconic, fascinating cities in the country ~ Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Our Music, Laughter, Connection and Love retreat will combine experiential experiences with inspiring music. With songs, stories, large and small group discussions, exercises, and lots of laughter, you will learn how to give yourself permission to love yourself while you rejuvenate your body, mind, and spirit.

Karen believes that when we take care of ourselves first, we can be present for the ones we love and help bring peace to this world. Loving ourselves is a psychological and spiritual journey—one many women need to give themselves permission to experience.

Over the course of our weekend, you will:

~ Be uplifted by music that inspires and heals

~ Learn practical tools to create a practice for centering and relaxation

~ Write your own chant to affirm the life you choose to live

~ Gain clarity on the next step(s) in your life

~ Revel in all Santa Fe has to offer 

During this weekend you will reconnect with yourself, feel refreshed amidst the beauty and mysteries of Santa Fe, engage with music that reprograms your emotional DNA, enjoy nourishing food, sing, laugh, and return home with a bounce in your step.


Karen Drucker’s message is all about healing and love – whether singing one of her positive message songs, or sharing stories that are funny, inspiring and heart opening. She is a keynote speaker, women’s retreat facilitator and entertainer who has recorded 20 CDs of her inspirational music, and is the author of the best-selling book; Let Go of the Shore.  Her chants are widely used around the world and often help people deal with illness, loss or just feel more centered for the day.  She has received an honorary doctorate from the Centers for Spiritual Living and a Grace Note Award from Unity Churches for her musical contribution to both of these organizations. Karen’s intention is to make a difference by using her music to open hearts and share a message of hope, acceptance, and love.  For more information on Karen, please click here.


Karen creates an experience with her music that
heals people and builds a deep awareness of community

~ Rachel Naomi Remen

Karen Drucker is a gem. She is not only an incredibly
talented musician; she has the
remarkable ability to know
what to say or or what to sing to move
an audience to laugher or tears.
Joan Borysenko

My experience with Karen Drucker’s music opened my heart
to the awareness that music is the language that instantly unites. In
15 minutes of singing and recognizing one another in a recent workshop,
40 of us connected in a way that is powerful beyond words.
~ Recent retreat participant


New Mexico was the the greatest experience from the outside world that
I have ever had. 
The moment I saw the brilliant proud morning shine high
over the deserts of Santa Fe,
something stood still in my soul. 

~ D. H. Laurence  


Santa Fe is one of America’s most historic, artistic, and fascinating cities. Known as “The City Different,” the nation’s oldest state capital city is a place unlike any other in in the world.  Santa Fe is 400+ years of cultural fusion with echoes of the past alive in the present.  We will meet each day in sacred circle, opening up time for you to experience everything that Santa Fe has to offer (great food, spectacular setting, world-class galleries, spas and more).


Our retreat will be located in the heart of Santa Fe, just steps from the Historic Plaza.  La Posada de Santa Fe Resort & Spa combines the upscale amenities and refined accommodations of a modern resort with authentic adobe architecture. From the property’s roots as an 1880s brick mansion to its 1930s expansion and recent renovation and refurbishment, La Posada has transformed into one of the Southwest’s most unique destinations.

We will meet in one of La Posada’s delightful gathering spaces where we will have a secluded meeting space with three patios overlooking Santa Fe.  We have reserved 12 rooms in La Posada for a discounted rate – 5 shared rooms ($379) and 7 single rooms ($309).
