Joshua Tree has been a place of pilgrimage, profound healing, clarity and magic for me for many years.  It is the wild west, the moon and the bottom of the ocean.  This desert vortex will ask you to dig deep but will hold you through any waves you need to ride to get to the next destination in your curriculum.  

The Cactus Moon in Yucca Valley is a gorgeous, quiet, spacious retreat property with comfy, beautifully decorated rooms, lots of light, many indoor and outdoor spaces to hang out, and a lovely pool.

To believe that we can really be effective in life-that we can take risks and create and share more of ourselves, we have to dissolve the structures that say we can’t. Reprogramming our hearts, minds and spirits with self love, self trust, and self authority allows us to be the kind of solid people that can lead, teach, activate and inspire.

We accelerate our healing process when we do it in community. We can go farther together than we can alone. In our evolutionary spiral, we return to our edges with greater consciousness, more tools, and greater awareness to go deeper. The specific retreat itinerary will take shape by the group that is magnetized to this land and wants to assemble for this healing retreat.  I find that each group I work with has its own personality and there are always themes that show up.  We will use personal inquiry, Breathwork, writing prompts, sound, movement and connecting with Spirit and the Earth to move forward.

We will have a morning and afternoon circle session in addition to:

Three group Breathwork healing sessions

A sound bath at the Integratron

One of my favorite Joshua Tree hikes!

Morning stretchy/chill yoga

An organic, Paleo-friendly menu designed and cooked for you by a functional nutritionist

Downtime for reading, writing, relaxing by the pool, and getting to know each other

The closest airport is Palm Springs.  It's about 40 mins from the retreat space and you should be able to take an Uber.  The second choice is to fly into LAX.  Travel time can be anywhere from 2.5-4 hours depending on traffic.  

I won't be coordinating rides but I will be collecting flight information so that you can coordinate rides with each other if your flights line up or you want to share a car.
