Yoga and shamanism are ways of bringing the sacred into everyday life and moving beyond the mind to work at the level of the soul. Individually, yoga and shamanism are powerful modalities that have the potential to shift long standing patterns one may be cycling through in life. Together, they are even more potent.
We will gather in magical Ojai in the heart of winter- a time of hibernation and introspection- to move through the process of unearthing those parts of ourselves that have been long buried and unattended to, bringing them to light for reflection, release and resolution. We’ll do so through diving deeply into yogic and shamanistic philosophy and ritual, connecting to the energy of the natural world as well as integrating sacred music and art. By doing so, we prepare for rebirth in the spring, planting our seeds of intention for the purpose of manifestation and harvesting come fall.
During your stay, you’ll experience daily yoga and meditation for all levels, ritual from the yogic tradition as well as shamanic ceremony and teachings. You’ll also have plenty of time to relax, read, nap, journal, soak in the salt water pools, hike, stroll through charming Ojai village or shop at the farmer’s market. We will have live music for our yoga classes courtesy of master musician, Tony Khalife, group art project with renowned artist, Rick Frausto and meals to nourish body and soul lovingly and consciously prepared by acclaimed chef, Meredith Klein. Dana Schwartz, a gifted healer and shaman in her own right, will be available for massage and/or acupuncture sessions. David will also be offering shamanic healing sessions. Please contact Dana and/or David directly to schedule your session. Esteemed astrologer, Chani Nicholas will be on hand throughout the weekend to map your path via the stars, moon, sun and planets. Please contact Chani to schedule your astrological chart reading. Bodywork and astrology sessions at an additional cost.

Just 90 minutes north of Los Angeles lies magical Ojai, otherwise known as the valley of the moon. Here you will experience secluded, serene luxury in this stunning villa which sits on 2 gorgeous acres of sacred land nestled at the base of the majestic Topa Topa mountains.

In the mornings you’re awakened by the sound of birdsong as you rise to an environment of mature trees and vibrant wildflowers beneath the Topa-Topa mountains. At sunset, the stunning ‘Ojai Pink Moment’ colors the mountains a gorgeous rose toned hue. In the evenings, bright starlit nights under the clear Ojai sky are the norm.
