What Is It?
The Blueprint Retreat, led by Michael Hidalgo, is a time for us to gather with others who have left their spiritual home and are filled with questions, doubts, skepticism and curiosity. While many of us have let go of the answers we’ve been given; something within tells us there is something more to be discovered. We invite you to join with others who are grappling with similar questions about faith to consider what it might look like to begin the work of constructing something together and to sketch a faith for the next season with the hopes that it may lead us to build something new.

Why is Michael doing this?
Because more people in more places are asking similar questions and often feel isolated and alone because of those questions. The Blueprint Retreat is a chance to see we are not alone. It is a time to come together and encounter fellow sojourners, to hit pause on our normal pace of life, enjoy the beauty of the mountains and imagine what a renewed vibrant faith could look like.

What will we do each day?
We will enjoy getting to know one another over meals, through discussion, sharing and learning together. We will also get to know ourselves through silence and contemplation. And we will get to know our world by spending time outside as well.

We will be outside?
Yes! We will take breaks throughout our time and, weather permitting, spend time in nature.

How do I get there?
Travel to the lodge is on your own …

For those from the Denver Metro Area:We encourage you to carpool with others who are attending. If you are interested in carpooling, let us know!

Are there group or couple discounts?
No, we are intentionally keeping this a small, intimate, low cost event. For this to work, it is a flat fee for all who join with us.

Do I get my own room?
No. A roommate(s) will be assigned (you may request a roommate). The number of beds in each room varies. Sorry, no single rooms available.

Is this an inclusive space for LGBTQ+ People?
Yes. We are committed to a supportive, affirming space for all people. While we realize not all who join with may share our convictions on faith, gender, and sexuality, we believe full inclusion of LGBTQ+ people is of utmost importance.

Can we bring kids?
No. Childcare will not be available.

How many people will be there?
20. This allows us to be heard and seen and known. And it means space is limited!

What if I reserve a spot but am unable to attend?
Sorry, no refunds.

Is there anything more I should know?
We don’t believe there is. Of course, there is always a good chance we’ve missed something. If that’s the case, send us an email and ask away!
