About This Event

We are honoured to present a powerful retreat with Kundalini Yoga Practitioner and Instructor, Liya Garber (Charan Kamal Kaur), to activate the radiant energy of the Aquarian woman – fierce, creative, clear and independent. Join us for a joyful women’s weekend that invites you into the sacred heart and connect you with your authentic inner truth.

This beautiful summer retreat is an invitation to come together as women to activate the powerful embodiment of our inner truth and vitality. Through ancient teachings of Kundalini Yoga, meditation and chanting with Liya, we cultivate clarity of mind and create space to see our own wisdom and intuition. Together we will embrace that which allows us to tap into our most balanced, vibrant selves and support a community of self-love and nourishment. We will transform our limitations, remove subconscious  blocks and drop the human story in order to frame a new vibrant experience of divine women in an Aquarian Age. In Kundalini Yoga, this Age is considered one where there is an expansion and awareness of energy and information, inspiring an evolution in dignity, strength, sacredness of female empowerment and consciousness.

Our weekend will align perfectly with the new moon, giving us an opportunity to celebrate this transition by releasing that which does not serve us to create space for deepening wisdom and alignment. We look to the new moon as a reminder of our capacity to reset and start a new phase with every breath and every thought. Both mornings, we will have the chance to also rise with the sun by starting the day with an optional 4:30am Morning Sadhana (meditation) before the morning yoga practice.

Recognizing the importance of food and nature as medicine, over these three days we will also savor abundant farm to table meals at our home, The Lotus Feed organic farm and retreat center. We will have the chance to shower under the wild canopy of a California Bay tree and walk in the beautiful gardens that surround us. Leaving some of the magic to be found up to your imagination, we invite you to meet us for an unforgettable weekend of woman power and community that will surely nourish and inspire.

The Venue

The Lotus Feed Retreat Center at Taylor Maid Farms rests on 108 acres of vital Sonoma coast nature. Its diverse landscape provides the most exquisite and magical experience of raw and cultivated beauty. From our redwood, fir and oak forests, to our thoughtfully designed circle gardens. Our ocean view ridge-tops overlook our colorful and hidden creek beds; The Lotus Feed Retreat Center is blessed with a full palette of wonder.


From luxury private yurts with vintage clawfoot bathtubs, to glamping in a teepee, the center is designed for any budget and all levels of comfort. Most of the accommodations are shared baths meaning that the restrooms are outside of the dwellings. There are several lux “outhouses” all with electricity and running water. One of the most special experiences at the Lotus Feed Center is the outdoor showers. They are built around a gorgeous California Bay tree and showers take place under the canopy. All tents are cozy and thoughtfully decorated and have beds ranging from doubles to twins.

      Sicily MAy 2019

    I went on the Sicily yoga retreat a week or so ago and I was supremely disappointed. First off, they sent out the wrong dates. I had booked about 9 moths in advance - that is simply unacceptable for an international trip. Luckily, my hotels at the beginning were refundable and my flight from NYC was early enough that no big calamity happened, other than me having to waste my time rebooking flights - which, they initially said that they would reimburse. When I tried to get details and compensation, Ben didn't return my call and my emails were not answered. They finally said that they would pay for my additional night in Sicily before the retreat, and lo and behold, when I went to check out, they had not paid nor made any arrangements. What kind of crap is that? At the retreat, the yoga was barely there and the classes were cancelled a lot. They had a women's only morning class that excluded the 2 guys there - totally unnecessary and kind of horrific. They said that there would be a men's only class, but that didn't happen. The teacher, Kate van Horn, was not good and did not have a presence whatsoever. These were some of the worst yoga classes that I have ever taken. She tried to incorporate some of Taryn Toomey's moves as well - and did that very poorly. This retreat was a colossal waste of time and money. I would not recommend this to anyone. The company is inept and horrific. Don't be fooled by their slick promotions. The only way that I was able to recoup anything was because I still owed them half the fees and they just discounted that. Most people did not get anything back. They promised to repay folks for the changes, but they did not. TERRIBLE COMPANY!

Desire to learn more meditation practices, spend more time in spiritual community. Heather

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
