Mountain Path

Where are we going?

Joyful Journey Hot Springs, located in the San Luis Valley of Colorado, is a small, simple and very calming healing site.


While it has very few frills, this place draws tens of thousands of people each year because of its energy.


From the time of the first indigenous tribes that inhabited the San Luis valley, these hot springs have been a space where weapons are laid down so all can gather to receive personal guidance and clarity.

This non-violent, nurturing, and transformative sense of community is still palpable today as you walk throughout the property. 

While Joyful Journey accommodations are simple, Embrace Your Essence Retreats takes great care to provide you luxury wellness treats, gourmet food, transformative personal guidance from Parinaz, and once in a lifetime experiences


Embrace Your Essence retreats at Joyful Journey Hot Springs are truly magical. They will allow you to escape your norms and receive the calm, clarity, and healing you need.  

Gourmet Meal

What will we be eating?

Mouth-watering, soul-nourishing, gourmet food is a staple and absolute highlight of this retreat.

Parinaz's mother is the private chef for this retreat.


She has over 30 years of professional chef experience. She's catered everything from retreats to birthdays to weddings for over 350 people, and has a talent of making each meal feel like a close, intimate family gathering.

Parinaz's mom cooks a variety of dishes from different cuisines. On this retreat, she will be honoring the family's Persian roots by preparing traditional Persian breakfast on the final morning and traditional dishes for the final dinner. 

You'll have all meals, snacks, desserts, as well as tea and coffee provided to you each day. 

We can accommodate your allergies, sensitivities, and preferences with advance notice.

Hey there ! 

I know it can be hard finding the time for rest & self-care
when there are always other things on your mind or you’re just too tired from life.


That's exactly why I created this retreat...  
Because sometimes, all we need is a little break from the norm
so we can recharge and connect with others
who understand what it means to live a balanced life.


You’ll spend the weekend surrounded by the natural beauty of Colorado’s Sangre De Cristo mountains.

You’ll wake up to crisp, clean air each day and
the peaceful silence of this sanctuary will fill you with relaxation and   

I’m so excited to take this journey with you!
