All About Grand Lake, Colorado

Grand Lake Colorado

Shadowcliff Lodge is the Sacred Place where Janet Mentgen was inspired to create Healing Touch back in the mid-1980s. In June of 2005, she held her last instructor gathering there, including a ceremony to welcome Cynthia as Healing Touch Program’s new Program Director. Our classroom space will be the chapel, the same place where Janet held her gatherings. Its large windows provide a beautiful view of Grand Lake and the Rocky Mountains.

Shadowcliff is just outside the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park, overlooks Grand Lake and is situated next to the source of the Colorado River.Grand Lake is a pristine (natural) mountain lake and a quaint town with fun shopping, food (try the Rapids Lodge, just below Shadowcliff) and things to do. For more information about Shadowcliff: www.shadowcliff.org.

Shadowcliff is about two hours from Denver, depending on where you are coming from. If you are arriving from DIA, please plan de-boarding time, luggage collection and rental car pick-up when planning your flight times. One can drive, take the train (Amtrak), or shuttle from the airport (Amtrak and shuttle schedules are seasonal dependent).
