Retreat Overview:

Join us for part two of this Epic retreat to experience all the health benefits and hacks of Fire and Ice in a group setting with adventurous people! Thaddeus Owen will serve as our winter retreat guide and key note speaker, along with our line up of incredible guest speakers.  

In 2020, we have some new and exciting additions to our Fire and Ice Retreat. Dr. Mike T. Nelson will be joining us for our winter February weekend to share all the latest science and research behind cold thermogenesis and heat shock therapy. Dr. Mike has been conducting and experimenting with some of his own cutting edge cold and heat therapy hacks, which will be shared for the first time during our winter weekend together! He will discuss how to get the most comprehensive holistic health benefits from your extreme temperature therapies.


We will also enjoy a special and sacred interactive meal with the James Beard award winning Chef, Sean Sherman, otherwise known as the Sioux Chef! Sean will spend a day with our tribe teaching us about the sacred and healing indigenous meals that were prepared hundreds of years ago by the native people who once lived on the property of The Point. He will reclaim the Native American cuisine and culinary cultures long buried on our peninsula and bring it back to life! Sean takes a forward thinking approach to his indigenous cuisine and will bring to light the skillful ways his ancestors survived and thrived during the winter cold and summer heat.

Follow cold by the glow of a fire and heat of the sauna to detox your body, increase blood flow, and reduce cortisol. Heat Shock Proteins are anti-aging and can increase muscle and reduce fat.
