After some enriching education around living with fire in Northern California,
enjoy a sumptuous meal under the Oaks of Saratoga.
Then relax and rejuvenate in the waters of Saratoga Springs’ exquisite pool and hot tub.
Our intention is to create a space for connection and camaraderie as peers,
a space where the magic of the moment happens.
And if you like, please stay the night! Sleep in a rustic cabin in this historic box canyon. After a light breakfast, there’ll be an optional meditation and yoga, a guided hike of this beautiful valley to explore the ecological regeneration after the intense fire last year and a sharing circle in the Heart Lodge.
We encourage the overnight stay for the optimal experience and nurturance of relationships…
time you’ll be grateful to have offered in service to your Self.
Long before it became Saratoga Springs, the Pomo Indians used this hidden valley
for peacemaking and healing. Today the valley still resonates with this energy,
which enhances the experiences of all who visit.
