The sun brings life to everything on Planet Earth, and springtime reveals all manner of plants and animals reveling in the light and warmth of the sun. Sprouts emerge, leaves unfold, and flowers spread their petals to deeply receive the increased light.

Allow yourself this special retreat to open to something new. Let the sun illuminate your heart and spirit, releasing tensions and expanding your sense of self beyond previous limitations. The outer solar light reflects the inner luminescence of your Divine Self, ready to express more fully through and as you.

We’ll spend the day at Ananda Valley Farm, delighting in the energy of springtime, exploring the creeks, clouds, newly blooming plants, and soaring hawks above us. Our day always includes time in solitude as well as in groups, with soulful community & connection.

You’ll also be nourished with time to relax and a delicious vegetarian lunch.​

This year’s retreat is open to all genders – bring your friends, partners, family (adults 18+), or make new friends!
Together, we’ll share in practices to open to spring’s inner and outer light:

  • Yoga
  • Meditation & Presence/Mindfulness
  • Ecotherapy – mindful, healing, and sacred connection to nature
  • Small and Large Group Activities
  • Light Hiking
  • Supportive, Sacred Community
  • Includes a gourmet vegetarian lunch!

Ananda Valley Farm is a secluded, idyllic farm in Half Moon Bay, with a year-round creek, pond, flowers, and hiking trails. This special place facilitates a deep connection to each other, the natural world, and Spirit, and nourishes your soul.
Limited partial scholarships are available for BIPOC and those needing financial assistance, and you may also donate to the scholarship fund to support them.

Join us for a day of renewal with kindred spirits, opening to the light of springtime and your inner illumination!

Early Registration (by April 6th) – $140
Standard Registration (from April 7th, if space available) – $150

All gatherings will follow current COVID-19 protocols.
