Exactly As You Are – A retreat to celebrate and accept life as it is

With Lydia Hwang and Jen Lo

April 6 - 9, 2023

We welcome back our beloved friends Lydia Hwang and Jen Lo for this very special retreat to nourish your soul!

Sometimes we find ourselves broken and feeling like we’re not enough. We need friends and practices to help us through these tough times. We are reminded that difficulty and pain make us stronger, wiser, and beautiful. We can get back up again.

Join Lydia Hwang and Jen Lo for this intimate retreat, which includes daily yoga, step-by-step Kintsugi making lessons, evening sound baths, and guided color meditation. Each participant will create their own piece of Kintsugi artwork to take home, as a reminder of our ever expanding ability to heal with the divine wisdom that is gold.

Kintsugi is the Japanese art of mending broken pottery with gold. A world view centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection — a way of living life with an authentic appreciation for the beauty to be found in what is, just as it is. As we continue to navigate this ever-changing new world, the art of kintsugi is a practice to heal through acceptance. Read more about kintsugi here.

This retreat is designed to help release in order to expand your spiritual capacity. Look ahead with your heart-mind and manifest that reality!

Treat yourself to a luxurious extended weekend getaway and be nourished by the coastal redwoods of Sonoma County. Practice yoga, meditation, artmaking, and receive the magic of sound baths. Relax and enjoy delicious vegetarian meals during this 3-nights stay in a modern yet cozy cottage. Each cottage has two bedrooms with a shared bathroom, kitchenette, living room, dining area, and deck. For those seeking more solitude, single occupancy booking is available. Optional hikes to the beach and massages are available. Retreat from the daily digital routine and reconnect to the soul!

All art supplies are included, and all experience levels are welcome!
