The experience I had with the recent “Art of Presence” retreat in Montana exceeded any and all expectations I had. The site where we stayed was perfect. The vast land we had to explore, the incredible people who own the land made us feel like family. I have never been treated as warmly as I was there. The camaraderie and closeness that happened between all of the attendees was amazing. We have all committed to staying in touch with each other, we grew that close in such a short time together. Peter promised it would be an intimate experience sharing and healing. He kept his promise. We shared secrets, pain, healing, and growth. I was personally pushed out of my comfort zone about singing by the group and so grateful for that growth. And last but not least the MUSIC... It will change and heal you I learned. Anyone who has the opportunity to attend a future retreat with Peter, go, it will change your life... Thank you, Peter, for an amazing experience I will cherish for the rest of my life.

Peter Kater's Art of Presence Retreat at the Dancing Spirit Ranch in Whitefish, Montana was an amazing restorative experience for me. I left my island home to go on a much needed vacation and decided to attend this artistic, spiritual retreat. I was able to let go of my work and responsibilities. This spot is sacred because the owners make it so with detail and special care for this land. This magnificent land has energy spots mapped out and monuments built by the owners to encourage the guests to meditate and reflect. The beds are super comfortable and I love the fluffy pillows and bedding. Peter Kater's music was amazing! He had many local guest musicians perform for us every night at the campfire.and a special guest Geri "Little John” who accompanied with her flute. We enjoyed camp fires at twilight and into the night. I met a lot of likeminded people here and wonderful new friends on this journey. These retreats attract people you are supposed to meet. We were pampered and the staff was at our beck and call. Good people and great service! The food was healthy and made with love. Who would think healthy food could taste so wonderful! Peter did a great job organizing events and activities for us to do if we wanted to see of Montana outside of the ranch. In a WORD “Heavenly.”

Joy Overflowing

Peter, I can’t thank you enough for creating the space for us to meet. I don’t say this lightly: I’ve been transformed. It was (and is) one of the most special and powerful times of my life. "IMAGINE ALL THE PEOPLE LIVING FOR TODAY" *** THE ART OF PRESENCE!

Pure Magic

Peter Kater's Art of Presence Retreat at the Dancing Spirit Ranch in Whitefish, Montana was a transformative experience. Peter's music took us on daily journeys with the lovely, peaceful space of Dancing Spirit Ranch as the backdrop. We laughed, we cried, and we loved one another and ourselves. We were well cared for by the lovely people at the Ranch. We came as individuals with various intentions, and we left as family feeling more love and presence than we could have dreamed of. The week was pure magic!

Mind Blowing

I attended Peter Kater’s Art of Presence Retreat in Whitefish, Montana. The Course In Miracles teaches us that miracles are a natural occurrence...and if they aren’t happening something is wrong. This past week I witnessed (for myself and others) so many uncanny experiences that I can only label them as miraculous. Thank you for facilitating such a mind-blowing trip. I’ll forever be in awe of it. There are no words or pictures to describe the feeling

Spirituality Expanding

Peter Kater's "Art of Presence Retreat " at the amazing brand new Dancing Spirit Ranch in Whitefish, Montana was an absolutely enchanting and enlightening journey within. The ranch is so much more than a retreat center. It’s a serene landing place and gateway to many spirituality expanding sites and pathways throughout the property. Adding to that Peter's piano sessions, sound immersions, special guests, yoga, river floats, exceptional accommodations, wonderful meal creators and the most generous hosts, it becomes a not to be missed week of heart opening joy.

Peter Kater's Art of Presence Retreat at the Dancing Spirit Ranch in Whitefish, Montana was magical. Actually, it's very difficult to describe in one word, or even a thousand words. That's because you have to experience it! Imagine days filled with time spent in the idyllic natural setting of Dancing Spirit Ranch, Peter playing his awesome music live every day, incredible food, getting to know Peter and a great group of amazing people through conversations on spirituality, presence, and the universe, time to spend exploring the beautiful ranch, all capped off with music around a fire every night. Then add to those optional or occasional activities, like morning yoga, an afternoon spent floating down Whitefish river, a visit to Glacier National Park, massages, a personal musical reading with Peter, and so much more. Like I said, you will have to experience it!
