Private Home | Ahwahnee, CA

Flyer & Registration


We meet at a beautiful private home in Ahwahnee, CA. It’s located on secluded tree-filled 2.5 acres with pathways trhoughout and a refreshing in-ground pool. This retreat is non-denominational without any attachment to a particular religion or dogma. Meditations and practices are spiritual in nature, and you get to define that for yourself.


Who Should Attend?

It isn’t often the full moon and summer solstice comingle. Each on their own is reason to celebrate. When they happen on the same day, get ready for some magic!

Full moons are a time for reset – setting new intentions and goals – and her celestial pull is very grounding.

During the Summer solstice, the Sun reaches its highest point in the sky and gives us our longest day, the most daylight we’ll see all year. It reminds us to honor the light within.

So, this retreat is all about honoring who you are and what you bring to this world. Along the way, you learn new practices and rituals to guide you in this journey. If this speaks to you, you should attend!


What Should I Expect?

This retreat offers a nice balance of unstructured and structured time. Structured time will include:

  • Full Moon and Summer Solstice rituals.
  • Daily Guided Meditations, to help you honor the light within.
  • Guided Forest Bathing, fully immersing yourself in the healing benefits of nature.
  • Tea Meditation, learning the art of preparing tea as a simple short retreat in itself.
  • Special guests who will share their gifts.
  • Opening and closing ceremonies.
  • Many other surprises!
