About This Event

Our last Desert Rejuvenation Retreat in Joshua Tree was incredible, so we can't wait to go back! This year we're hosting our retreat at the incredible Rancho de Colores house! Accommodation options include shared bedrooms in the house, a vintage RV out back, or camping in your own tent outside! Tent and RV campers will get full access to the house and outdoor common areas as well. There's a fun cowboy pool for cold plunges after a hot day! This retreat will max out at 12 guests in order to keep the community small and intimate.

The Joshua Tree desert is a magical land sure to challenge your adaptability and creativity. We love hosting retreats here because we get to blend outdoor adventure with mystical meditation and inspired creativity! We can't wait to reveal what we have planned for this one!

What's Included

  • 6 yoga sessions with Carrie
  • 4 meditation sessions including a guided "Wim Hof"-style transformational breathwork meditation
  • Reiki healing
  • Private sound healing at The Integratron
  • Guided rock climbing (all levels welcome!), hiking, and time to explore on your own in Joshua Tree National Park
  • Cacao ceremony, jam sessions, and dancing under the stars
  • Abstract painting class
  • Joshua Tree town art tour
  • Journaling prompts and exercises
  • Private sessions of your choice: Ayurvedic health/recovery counseling, Reiki energy healing, private breathwork or yoga
  • Massage from guest massage therapist in-training Bailee Heath
  • Food will be all plant-based, "gourmet camping" style, cooked by our chef Zach. Coffee, tea, and sparkling water.
  • There will also be excursions into Joshua Tree National Park, where we can absorb the magic and hopefully get to see lots of spring wildflowers. We'll cover your park entrance and provide you with lunch and hiking/climbing recommendations or guiding.
  • Each day will feature a special ceremony. One of these will be an incredible Sound Healing experience at The Integratron and one will be a cacao ceremony with organic cacao from Guatemala. There will be more surprises as well!
  • Like we said, this is a packed schedule but everything is optional as always, and there will still be free time to explore on your own or relax.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Reconnecting with myself after a very crazy few months with a new baby! Just having that feeling of being grounded again. But also having an opportunity to connect with new amazing people. Getting exposed and Inspired by new (to me) yoga instructors (and community). Being in the presence of real, authentic and raw emotion (the whole spectrum).. So many reasons! Alyson
 

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.
