WANDERING NATIVE RETREATS
Combines physical, emotional, and creative components allowing guests to wander, finding exactly what they need to ignite their soul and live their most fulfilled life.
"Mandy Martini, our yoga guide for this retreat, will be helping us tap into our inner yogi with a focus on letting go, the power of self surrender and the meaning of contentment. The emphasis is on inner work rather than a good workout. This sparkling gem amazes with her depth of knowledge and teaching style. She is remarkable at what she does and has been featured in French Vogue and as a contributor to Mind Body Green. Beginners and experts will benefit from her unique practice." - Wandering Native Retreats
HIDDEN HEALING HOT SPRINGS
Hiking through matillija canyon will lead us to these restorative hot springs on sacred land where your worries will evaporate in the warm water.
WILD AND PURE
In a stunning private estate, learn the art of making artisanal soap using the botanicals cultivated from the gorgeous grounds as you enjoy tea and warm, buttery scones, are you in yet? Indulge your senses collecting wildflowers, pixie blossoms, native matillija poppies or simply stroll through the olive groves.
We will end our outing with a beautifully prepared picnic by Chef Meg in the lavender fields.
On this retreat we're excited to have Meg from Curry Girls Kitchen in the house, creating beautiful, delicious meals throughout the entire weekend. How wonderful to wake up and have food prepared just for you. Everything tastes better when food is infused with her love and passion.
Meg just got home from the Italian countryside where she was invited to show off her crazy culinary prowess. Meg's gift will nourish your soul this weekend.
SOUND BOWL HEALING
When our healer, Heather Turner, walks into a room you automatically feel her calming presence. She is a scientist by trade (no joke, the cutest scientist we've ever seen.) Her passion for healing using her crystal singing bowls is part of her DNA. Her singing bowl meditation will help you let go of whatever may be holding you back.
You so deserve this treat!
