About This Event

Discover the wisdom of your inner landscape while connecting deeply to the elements of the world around us - earth, air, fire, water, and ether. Through gentle Pilates, yoga, meditation, and adventurous time outdoors, we'll explore the synergistic and nourishing relationship between personal and planetary wellness.

​Learn about medicinal wild plants and be nourished by fresh food from earth-conscious farms in the area. Return home rested and rejuvenated with new wisdom to care for yourself, your loved ones, and our precious planet. To ensure personalized attention, the retreat is limited to ten guests.

The city of Santa Barbara sits on traditional Chumash territory, which we acknowledge, respect, and will learn about during our week together.

I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed my Six Petals Retreat. I carry that trip in the front of my mind and think of it almost daily. It was indeed a sort of reset, allowing some small but meaningful spiritual shifts in my life. - Allison, 40
