Who We Are

Trudy Mayer, MEd

Owner/Director – SpiritWood Retreat
I am passionate about learning and teaching. My entire career has been focussed on education. Building SpiritWood Retreat is fulfilling my ‘dream’ to create a space and place where people can come not only to learn new skills and knowledge, but to be inspired to transform their lives and the lives of others. I feel blessed to have the opportunity of sharing this magical place with those who strive to make a difference in their lives, in their communities and in the world.

For those who request support to ensure that your meetings and programs at SpiritWood Retreat are successful and inspiring, I am willing to share my years of facilitating and teaching to assist in the planning and delivery of your events. I can also recommend highly skilled trainers and faciliators from my wide network of professional contacts.

Christa Mayer, BFA

Resident Manager – SpiritWood Retreat
Christa brings a wide skillset to Spiritwood drawing from her myriad of diverse employment experiences, which include cruise ship entertainer, barista and coffee shop manager, dental receptionist, and registered massage therapist and Reiki practitioner. She is passionate about excellence in customer service, bringing care, attention and artistry to the smallest and largest details. When she is not basking in the beauty of nature at SpiritWood, she can be found sharing her poetry at various Spoken Word events in Calgary and abroad.
