Gaia Grove is holding a full moon retreat in March 2017 on the Baja coast for all who wish to refresh souls, reawaken creativity, & be inspired by the healing magic of Gaia.
Come on a sacred journey for 3 mystical nights and 4 magical days on the cliffs of the Pacific Ocean in a retreat designed especially for creatives seeking to grow skills and practice their craft in harmony with nature. This location abounds with tidal pools, marine geysers, secret ocean caves, and more, and is known for opening channels for inspired work and healing.
This weekend of nature, writing, hiking, art, song, circles, and creativity will be at the Baja Off The Grid ocean cliff retreat (www.bajaoffthegrid.com) in La Bufadora, Mexico, just a 2 hours drive south of San Diego, outside of Ensenada. The location is near local villages for food, local artisans, and emergencies, yet remote enough to have sweeping views of the horizon and the Milky Way is usually visible at night with the naked eye. The home itself is custom-designed for spiritual gatherings & retreats, has been featured in LA Yoga magazine, and is a primarily solar-powered sanctuary surrounded by hiking trails, marine life from whales to anemones, and remarkable scenery.
We live by the sun; each evening, we gather before sundown for a group circle, activity & dinner, and morning begins with breakfast & group circle, followed by a hike. Days are free to explore in your own way, journal, sing, drum, paint, yoga etc. with an optional offering class, tarot, or astrology reading. Healthy and mostly organic, vegetarian meals are included Thursday dinner through Sunday morning. There will be a lovely balance of both private and group time, which will allow for necessary insight, sharing, and reflection.
We would like to keep this group under 8; there is also ability to drive participants to the retreat to and from Los Angeles. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to make sure the room you are interested in and ride space is still available before booking.
Please also feel free to ask any questions you have! There are 5 bedrooms in the house, and single rates are for those needing an entire room for just one person ($400), while double rates are for rooms shared by two people ($600 total; or $300 per person for Sun/Moon & $700 total; or $350 per person for Mars/Venus. Guests may drive themselves or have the option to be driven roundtrip from Los Angeles for $150…
