      The Karma Institute at Willow Springs


Learning to Live Good Karma in the Modern World.


After an exhaustive search for a home for the Karma Institute,
Mark and Trish Hughes were inspired to purchase the neglected Willow Springs property in September of 2018 because they felt something special buried under all those blackberries. Nearly three years later, with hard work and perseverance, The Willow Springs Lodge and Retreat Center is completed.  
Our MISSION: providing life-expanding weekend & week-long retreats for your escape from a hectic lifestyle.

Committed to creating "experiences" that inspire and uplift,
we offer workshops and retreats for a 3-day or 7-day stay and invite you
to escape from the hustle and bustle and relax, reboot, and rejuvenate. 
We cater to intimate groups of 12-20 people by providing a range of lodging rates,
from single bunks to bedrooms suites, and comfortable gathering places,
from our 900 square foot yoga studio to our 1700 square foot open-air pavilion. 
Our state-of-the-art chef’s kitchen is equipped to prepare the finest of meals for large groups
with farm-fresh eggs, produce and herbs directly from our garden.
Join together and soak in the six-person hot tub then step into the wood-burning sauna and finish off your wellness experience with a soak in the cold plunge claw foot bathtub.
Sit on a bench and watch our chickens or gaze into the herb garden fountain.
Find your spot to sit and take in nature’s beauty and just be still.
Drift off to sleep with the sound of our backyard waterfall.
