We are a small, peaceful retreat center for lovers of the Earth and healthy living.
We host wellness-centered educational programs, retreats, professional trainings, and collaborative work-study opportunities.
We serve leaders, teachers, healers, visionaries, and people interested in living conscious, creative, and fulfilling lives, engaged with Nature as an ally. We welcome like-hearted people who work on our grounds while forwarding their own personal goals. Participants include people of varied ages, perspectives, and cultures.
We use ancient and modern Nature-connected healing and expressive arts (including music, dance, visual arts, word arts, and theater) that enhance connection with self, other, community, Nature, and the Great Mystery (God/Goodness/Goddess).
Our facilities include the Mahalo Rose Encantadora sound healing temple, break-out spaces, and permaculture-inspired organic gardens, including fruit and nut trees, berry bushes, and a variety of perennial and annual herbs, vegetables, flowers, and other staples.
