Don’t miss out on the power of sacred plants this April!



Our Philosophy

We’re on a mission to illuminate the path to inner healing. Our aim is to empower individuals to discover that the seeds of healing lie within themselves. At our retreat, guests undergo a transformative journey that creates lasting change.

Our Founder

Mike Murphy is a bestselling author, speaker, coach, and consultant deeply devoted to empowering individuals worldwide to realize their deepest aspirations.  His highly acclaimed book, “Love Unfiltered,” soared to become a bestseller upon its release in September 2014, showcasing his visionary perspective.

As President and Owner of the Oakland Automotive Group for nearly two decades, Mike demonstrates astute business leadership, leveraging his successful multi-million dollar ventures in auto dealerships and commercial real estate.

Driven by profound personal loss, Mike founded the Love from Margot Foundation.  This heartfelt initiative emerged from Margot Murphy’s courageous battle against advanced breast cancer, which sadly ended in 2011 at the age of 38.

Fueled by a passion to help others heal themselves and to revolutionize healing, Mike established the hidden 20-acre gem, Mountains of Hope, in the Andes mountains of Colombia.  This holistic sanctuary for transformative healing emerged from his personal health challenges, including battling mercury poisoning, driving him to offer effective, high-quality therapies.

For Mike Murphy, Mountains of Hope symbolizes a sanctuary where individuals can rediscover health, shed toxins, and embrace holistic well-being through a journey of wholehearted living.

Our Mission

We proudly provide vital support to individuals facing chronic conditions without access to adequate medical and wellness care. Through the Love from Margot Foundation, we extend one complimentary retreat annually to veterans grappling with PTSD and to women battling cancer while living below the poverty line.

About The Love from Margot Foundation

The Love from Margot Foundation offers comprehensive financial, medical, and spiritual support to low-income and underinsured women battling advanced cancer through emergency funds, education, and essential resources needed to fully support their journey toward healing and recovery.
