The Highest Version of Yourself Awaits You



Waking up without an alarm, in the middle of sheets so soft they’re caressing your skin. Your entire body feels relaxed – perhaps for the first time in months.


As you come back to your senses, you take in a deep breath of the crisp, mountain air.


You leave your cozy room to have your first soak of the day in "The Waters" followed by an inviting refreshing morning yoga class (free to JOY LIFT guests) and your first meal of the day – a colorful, healthy breakfast, fresh, organic, locally sourced food whenever possible (so good, you could eat it every day!).

The sun is shining, so you decide to sip your fresh green juice, morning coffee or tea as you relax poolside.


The spacious, soothing movement and TranscenDance studio space is your new sanctuary… where you get to know more about your true self and sink deeper into your soul.


You’re surrounded by amazing souls – some you may have just met, but feel like you’ve known them for decades…


And between the powerful life-transformation retreat activities, you melt onto the massage table as you treat yourself to a relaxing massage…

As you become even more connected to your intuition, you embody unapologetic confidence and freedom on a whole new level.


This may sound like just a dream – but this is the opportunity of a lifetime if you want to take it…


It’s a chance to join me for a 3-day retreat to come back into alignment and rejuvenate in the mystical San Luis Valley of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains at the Joyful Journey Hot Springs Spa and Resort in Moffat, Colorado.


If you’re ready to leave stress behind and go on a magical journey of personal growth, you’re invited to our wonderful first annual wellness retreat…

The Mystic San Luis Valley and Joyful Journey Hot Springs

The San Luis Valley is the largest alpine valley in the world. A spiritual, intriguing land offering a sense of peace amid epic 100-mile views and sand dunes circled by soaring peaks, the valley is peppered with the legacy of American Indian, Hispanic, and European settlers and explorers, steeped in history and ripe with folklore.


Joyful Journey is a sanctuary, a community, and a retreat, where people from all walks of life come to experience its soothing waters – to heal and find peace from the stress of their daily lives. As owner/guardian of these sacred waters since 1999, my intent is to allow our mineral hot springs’ healing water and therapies to awaken the hearts and uplift the spirits of all who come, so that they might experience the amazing benefits these waters provide.  ~ Elaine, Owner, Joyful Journey

Naturally super-heated by the earth’s active geothermal and hydrothermal activity, Joyful Journey is one of the few places on earth with natural hot mineral water that does not have the sulfur odor that is often found in many hot mineral springs. Our mineral waters are piped directly from private artesian springs at Joyful Journey.


The pools are tempered between 98°F to 108°F. For centuries, the Native Americans, the Spanish explorers and early settlers took refuge at what is now Joyful Journey Hot Springs Spa. Whether for therapy or a respite from a harsh winter climate, these early visitors placed great value on the unique healing qualities of this water.

The Native Americans referred to these elements simply as “The Waters” and established its source as a place of peace, where all tribes were welcome, leaving all differences behind as they came to this sanctuary to heal. The local elders tell stories of how the tribes would put down their weapons when they came together at The Waters. The Waters have always been a place of peace.

Transformational Curriculum


Discover how to tune into the wisdom of your body-mind-spirit through movement


Learn about the body’s energy centers (chakras) to unlock deeper transformation than ever before.


You’ll find out how to use these energy centers as a compass to catalyze meaningful shifts into your life.


Clear inner blocks and release what is no longer serving you by clearing your energy field


Empower yourself with the tools to bring yourself to balance and manifest a life you love…


And embody the joy, wellness, and vibrant health you long for.

High Energy, passionate about helping you, caring about you as a person, amazing insight,

and personal growth beyond what you thought was possible! 

That is my experience of coaching with Janet Langmeier. 


Janet doesn’t pay lip service. She will call you on things, be honest with you, and challenge you to really dig deep into your thoughts, actions, and dreams. She is positive, reassuring, and genuine. 


I am living right now, in my life, what we worked on during my coaching program!


- Elizabeth Seldanik, Denver, CO

One thing I can say about coaching with Janet is that she keeps all thing real. She helped me reframe my perspective, set realistic goals and holds me accountable. We see the big picture while we walk through all the small pieces together.


In coaching with Janet, she has a gift for bringing structure. She has helped me, in what felt like a totally chaotic situation, so I could see purpose and clarity. She has shown me how to add light to all situations, giving them meaning, and creating a plan! Coaching with Janet is immensely positive in my ability to deal with my life.


 - Sara Jackson, Hudson, WI

Amazing Heart-Centered People


Feel Supported Every Step of Your Journey


There’s nothing like the support of a soul-centered community to allow change to flourish in your life – the combined energy of a group will potentiate your capacity to access breakthroughs!


Inside this retreat you’ll encounter an intimate group of 20 amazing people (just like the wonderful souls in the picture) who will be there right by your side while you grow, expand your consciousness and awaken your inner voice.


You can trust you will be held in a safe space for vulnerability, sharing life experiences and voicing your truth…


And just as important – they’ll make you laugh, play and stay fully present in the moment.


That’s the magic of soul connections!

Janet is invested in you 100% all in from day one!  I found her to be a gentle soul, like your inner BFF that you've always wanted to be able to talk to about everything. She is a walking talking Dear Diary and she listened and guided me toward discovering my best self.


Psst. Janet has a superpower, it is her GIGANTIC big heart!


- Tia Ronningen, Minneapolis, MN

My experience of Janet is that she is a wise coach and mentor who sees the light in you and helps you believe in your own dream. She helps me stay on the path of focusing on the future - and taking action to realize that future state.


I have increased gratitude in my life since working with her. It has brought me peace and certainty, and who doesn’t need more of those things?


Dewi Bornt, Maplewood, MN
