2023 Soul of a Leader | Colorado

Soul of a Leader Retreat

JULY 5-9 | Arkansas River – Buena Vista, CO | $2,950 per person

Leadership matters. Leaders influence others–whether in the marketplace, the communities in which they live, the church or the home. Are people better for being connected to your leadership in the various roles you play?

Many leaders today express high levels of loneliness, burnout, and lack of joy–even though they may look happy and successful on the outside. Leaders need personal investment, safe relationships, life-giving rhythms for sustained resilience and much more. Yet, many leaders admit they do not have these increasing measures and know they need them.

How are you doing as a leader? Are you thriving or merely surviving? Are you tapping into significance, not just success? Do you need a reset and/or a better personal/leadership plan? Do you need a tribe of other leaders who “get” you and your life of unusual demands and pressures?

Welcome to the Soul of a Leader Retreat.

Our retreat offers the space to connect with God, self, and others in a meaningful way through intentional and guided lessons, reflections and conversation, fly fishing as a metaphor and adventure, with great food, rest and fellowship. You will be placed in an environment that creates the space to evaluate and read the waters of life, connect with God and become a better angler through the experienced team that will guide you through this retreat adventure.

This retreat is designed for senior leaders, business owners, or professionals with a leadership platform.

Note: We recommend Altar’s post on the power of retreats. READ HERE.

The majestic Rocky Mountains set the scene for our time together. Floating and wading on the gold medal waters of the Arkansas River for brown and rainbow trout and hiking to an alpine lake above 12,000 ft. elevation for cutthroats are just a few of the adventures that await.


4 nights/3 days in Buena Vista at Frontier Ranch's spacious and rustic lodge with enclosed fire pit, ample gathering space and the perfect setting for quiet reflection set in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. All meals are crafted by our in-house chef including full breakfasts, lunches on the river, and delicious home-cooked dinners around the table together.

"This retreat was nothing short of awesome for me. Connecting with other leaders that face the same challenges as I do was very valuable. We learned from each other. We opened up to each other. We learned to focus on developing one’s soul. And the coaching we received was tremendously valuable. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to hit the reset button and improve their relationship with God, while becoming a better leader."

Aaron | Soul of a Leader

"Altar helped me get away to the beauty of the outdoors so I could get out of my hectic rhythms and hear from God. The retreat was not only fun, but created space for authentic conversations that allowed for transformation and gave us tools for how to assess the state of our souls so we can sustain healthy soul care beyond the retreat."
