Sierra Soul was first created in 2016, but Granlibakken has been hosting wellness events since 2011. When Granlibakken took over Women's Wellness Weekend in 2011, we didn't realize how far this journey would take us. A few years later, we have hosted many incredible, meaningful events, met some amazing people, and inspired a connection to wellness in our local community and beyond.
Sierra Soul is a series of wellness events hosted by Granlibakken. The schedule and content changes each year, but one thing remains the same--Granlibakken retreats are the perfect place for people of all abilities to connect with wellness.
