​Lily Myers Kaplan

I am Lily Myers Kaplan, caretaker and tend-er of the Sanctuary of Rainbow Ridge. I bring more

than three decades of experience as a soul-coach, years of directing graduate programs for a modern

day mystery-school, and a sojourn as director of a family camp in the Sierra Mountains of California. I am well-aware of what makes your stay complete, satisfying, and connected with the natural world of which we are a small part. I am happy to ensure your well-being during your stay.


When you come on  Hermitage, I am honored to care for you in body, mind, and spirit while you are

here, cooking simple meals to nourish your body, suggesting soul-tasks or ceremonies to carry out on the land, or offering a gentle nudge to encourage you to open, awaken, and rejuvenate your spirit.


When you come for Bed and Breakfast, I am pleased to share the joys of the Applegate Valley and then leave you to your private rest and renewal.

Foundational to my work is a love of the natural world, a value for service, and my belief that connection to soul revitalizes life. I’ve worked with hundreds of people individually, on retreats in wild settings, and through workshops nationwide. I have an MA in Culture and Spirituality, am a non-denominational ordained minister and a ceremonial officiant. But, my most valued credentials are my personal experience of living a life of soul, transforming my own losses into legacy, and my ability to listen deeply to your stories, while teasing out the gossamer threads that help you to be most authentically you.

Thank you.  I will be back!"
