YOL ON THE FARM, JUNE 2-4, 2017

Occidental-2017June-Header

 

Come join us on a rustic, outdoor, wellness retreat at the Lotus Feed, located on 108 acres of vital Sonoma coast nature.  Its diverse landscape provides an exquisite and magical experience of both raw and cultivated beauty.  The center features an outdoor yoga deck overlooking the coastline, and indoor Bindu yoga yurt and gathering space, an 80 foot communal dining table, a pond and gardens.  From redwood, fir and oak forests, to thoughtfully designed gardens, The Lotus Feed is blessed with a full palette of wonder.
 
Relish in yoga, nourishing farm-to-table meals, wine tasting and an inspiring service experience with Forget Me Not Farm, a sustainable organic farm that provides animal therapy and horticultural training to at-risk youth.
 
The rest of your time can be spent meditating pond side, meandering through medicinal herb gardens, hiking trails through fern groves and cooling off with a dip in the fresh water springs. You’ll cultivate a relationship with the earth and lend a hand in the organic gardens harvesting the fruits and labor of the land to feast for our farm-to-table communal meals. End your days with a sunset yoga practice under the passion flower canopy, and the rest of your evening can be spent star gazing by the fire pit.
