Other Events & Retreats
Blackwood Living. Fun, Enriching Texas Retreat Venue. Houston, Austin, & Central Texas
Expand your mind and enrich your spirit on retreat in our serene, natural environment.
Blackwood is a favorite venue for private retreats of any size group. From weeklong yoga retreats occupying all our facilities to intimate afternoon writers’ retreats working on the back porch of Baleyfield House, participants rave about the comfort they have enjoyed, the inspiration they have received, and the productivity they have experienced.
Few places can offer the tranquility you will experience at Blackwood. Our serene, meditative environment is a natural spiritual elixir for relating, healing, contemplation, and refreshment. Stroll the grounds or walk our labyrinth. Free yourself from the tentacles of technology, even for a short time. While we have WiFi available, the only connection you will want to make is with Mother Nature.
Team Building Retreats
Looking to gather your team together for a day of bonding? Blackwood is the perfect country setting for a regenerative team retreat. Bring your own materials or custom design programming to be facilitated by our staff, train in leading professional and corporate team building activities. We provide a space to meet, meals and a creative and rejuvenative environment.
For decades, Blackwood has been a popular educational environment for school field trips, overnights, and the Blackwood Farm School. Now others seek us out for a wide variety of gatherings: yoga teacher trainings, environmental symposiums like Pachamama facilitator training, member conferences like Texas Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association, and intensives like our Wilderness Advanced First Aid trainings. We have the experience and the facilities to accommodate your needs.
Personal Development Retreats
Creativity sparks fly at Blackwood. Writers and artists have enjoyed the camaraderie and inspiration of daylong and overnight retreats on our land. Workshop facilitators love the opportunities our facility provides for group sessions, easy breakouts, and private work.
Girlfriend getaways, mother/daughter teas, men’s brisket and bourbon nights, a bachelorette party… we can accommodate whatever gathering you can dream up.
The spacious Gathering Hall can accommodate just about any indoor activity, from seated lectures and meals to yoga and media screenings.
Lodging is cozy, rustic, and fun. Baleyfield House has two bunk rooms and adjoining baths, accommodating up to 38 comfortably. Retreat facilitators often use our two studio cabins to enjoy a little quiet time and a place for planning and organization away from the group.
Small groups are welcome to prepare their own meals in the charming Baleyfield kitchen. We invite you to treat your group to Blackwood’s beyond-organic foods and the talents of Chef Cade Conlon of Longspoon Catering and Education while you are here.
If you can dream it, we can do it.
