Our retreat spot is on the central coast of California. I taught a retreat nearby several years back and really fell in love with Avila Beach. Avila is 11 miles from our Mediterranean Villa where we will be staying. It is a southern facing beach that I spent one afternoon. That day I had a profound feeling of interconnectedness with the ocean and all the ocean beings. I swam next to sea otters and had pelicans dive bombing 15 feet in front of me.
The villa that I rented is nestled in the vineyards of one of the most famous areas for amazing wine. It is a 4,000 square foot home on the top of 5 private acres of avocado & oak trees in rural Arroyo Grande.
I believe between this beautiful ‘room to roam’ natural bounty of the villa, Avila beach, Wendy’s amazing food and transformative yoga practices this July retreat will bless us all.
