Off the grid. On a mesa. In the high desert. At 6800 feet.
Half-way between Albuquerque and Santa Fe, located near the unique and quirky artist village of Madrid, Shanti Community and Retreat of New Mexico is a truly epic experience offering guests a sanctuary for the mind, body and spirit.
We host yoga, community events, Dharma Tea Bus offerings, live music, healing services, and retreats. If you're a freedom-seeker, a wanderer, traveler, rebel, maverick or artist, you are Shanti family! Come and stay in a converted bus, or a hip retro camper and experience the magic of this land for yourself! Think Walden meets Kerouac and Thoreau meets Banksy.
From Shelly, the founder of Shanti: I'm an off-grid, high desert, yurt dwelling, artist, musician, traveler and lover of life! The ten acres where my converted school buses and yurts reside is on a mesa a few short miles from the artist village of Madrid, New Mexico. Going to sleep and then waking to the sound of coyotes, owls, and nearby roosters, with 360-degree views is magical beyond description. It's quiet and peaceful but only 5 miles to the creative community of Madrid. Madrid has fabulous restaurants and 30 plus galleries with only 300 residents. The off-grid land where I live and am passionate about sharing, offers the best of both.... peaceful privacy and community.
