Founded in 2014, Stone & Compass serves as an incubator and driving force for global partnerships and projects that help build a vibrant future full of hope, financial security, peace, and happiness. To meet this mission, Stone & Compass focuses on connecting youth and adults from across the globe through our Service Learning Trips, Health & Wellness Retreats, and Cultural Tours which help support our global partnership projects and youth internship program.

In 2016, Stone & Compass opened the doors to a cultural retreat center located in the foothills of the Balkan Mountains in Stolat, Bulgaria. Spread over 2,000 acres, our retreat center is geared towards bringing together people from around the world to share in all the rich heritage that Bulgaria and Eastern Europe have to offer. We provide tours, lodging, meals, and all the amenities to help make you feel comfortable, relaxed and refreshed.

Whether its learning how to make wine on our very own vineyard or cheese from our very own goats, or hiking through the local mountains on an eco-tour, or even taking a much needed break in our yoga studio, our staff and facility are here to make your visit full of memories that will last a lifetime. 

The Stone & Compass Retreat Center also offers the chance for educators and students to come together and learn about the history and culture of this great land. We have week long tours geared specifically towards collaboration and work closely with all the local museums and foundations for a hands on experience like no other. We also offer week long stays specifically focused for artists, couples, families, and even for those individuals who share in a passion for organic farming, local cooking and environmental sustainability.
