Join us for this unique opportunity to retreat, relax and re-create on the Lost Coast at Big Flat. Hike out from Shelter Cove on the afternoon of Friday October 9th and land at this beautiful ranch house for a weekend of meditation, yoga and movement, hiking, journaling, time for solitude and wonderful organic meals.
Spend three nights in this remote location either camping in tents or in sleeping quarters inside the ranch house itself. There is a wood heated shower, a wood burning hot tub and sauna and full sized kitchen house--meals provided. Gear will be flown in and out of Shelter Cove--No Backpack needed! The hike out will be on Monday October 12th. Both hikes will be scheduled around low tides for safe crossing at that time of year.
Don't wait to make your reservation! There is a great deal of buzz around this event and it is sure to fill up.
