Once in a Blue Moon Retreat in Joshua Tree

Retreat to the desert with us to unwind, open your mind and find your bliss with a “Once in a Blue Moon” weekend retreat in Joshua Tree National Park.

Join Leslie Honaker from Lauren Brooks Life with Natalie Valle of Love & Alchemy and Kelli Watkins of Bhakti Yoga Seva for a 3-day retreat among the magnificent Joshua Trees!

May is the month for living life in full bloom! When we realized there was also going to be a rare full blue flower moon in May, we were inspired to create this blissful gathering in the Mohave desert!

We’ve combined rhythms from the ancients, earth and sky to weave an itinerary that will be deep in connecting you with nature to calm the mind, rest your body, and help shed away what no longer serves you.

Our home base is a private estate overlooking the Joshua Tree National Park and Yucca Valley. We’ll have plenty of room to sprawl out in this seven bedroom chic desert chateau filled with five star amenities on six acres of land, with access to hiking into the legendary tree covered hills.

Sound Bath: Blissful Vibrations!

Join me for blissful vibrations at a Sound Bath! This is one of the most ancient forms of healing designed to bring you to a state of deep meditation, relaxation and rejuvenation. Even if you've never meditated before, you can do this . . . all you need to do is lay down and let the vibrations do the work. We’ll be hosting this experience in a special place - where flowers rule and the chicks are cool - Lotus Wei’s new digs in Central Phoenix! Natalie Valle, soundologist from Santa Monica, is our healer working magic on your body. Then, I’m going to nourish you with sips of joyful tea and a nosh of luscious sweet bites from our Sonoran harvest fruit board to awaken your senses after emerging from the heavenly bath. What better time, than the Saturday after Thanksgiving, to set aside 75 minutes to quiet the mind from the food and family frenzy! If you have guests in town, this would be a delightful way to begin your day before brunching, shopping or strolling around some of Phoenix’s treasured sites like the Desert Botanical Garden.

$25 per person includes 75 minute sound bath and awakening nosh experience (limited seating - register early!) No refunds for cancellations made 72 hours (3 days) prior to class.
