Special Room Rate...$70 per night, single or double occupancy.

Self Guided Retreats

Follow your own path

Explore the beautiful countryside, take in the local area attractions, or settle in with a good book in our fountain room. We welcome individuals or couples to share time with us in beautiful northeastern New Mexico.

Take a walk on some of our newly created trails, and make sure to visit the labyrinth. Learn about the area’s history by planning a trip to the museums in Folsom and Clayton. Don’t forget to include a visit to Capulin Volcano National Monument. From the rim of the volcano visitors claim they can see 5 states. Or take time to create your own adventure...there are many roads to follow!

Room Rate...$80 per night, single or double occupancy. Please call for availability.

Occasionally groups open their workshops to others seeking a retreat and we are happy to include these events in our listings. If your group is looking for a place to meet please contact us for more information about our facility rental.

Cancellation Policies

Our fees and cancellation policies are subject to change at any time without notice.

Although it is our desire that all programs are successful, circumstances do arise that lead to a need for cancellation. The Mandala Center reserves the right to cancel a program at any time. If The Mandala Center cancels a program you will receive a full refund on the program and accommodation fees. We are not responsible for travel expenses incurred due to cancellations.

We cannot offer refunds beyond the policies listed. We are not able to give refunds due to bad weather conditions or for anyone who simply does not show up for a program. We cannot give refunds for anyone who must leave a program early or does not participate in portions of a program.

We keep our fees as low as possible (and our non-profit subsidizes portions of all programs) to make it as affordable as possible for guests. Due to this practice we are unable to reduce rates further or refund beyond our stated policies.

If you must cancel your registration written notice is preferred via email, fax, or mail.
