The Healing Farm Stinson Beach Mini-Retreat a Success!

Excited to share some photos from The Healing Farm Stinson Beach mini-retreat! We had a gorgeous day and I’d say the highlight for me was doing yoga in the fresh ocean air and listening to the waves crash on the beach while in our final meditation as the sun set and the almost full moon rose. What a way to end the day!

Creating and holding this retreat and bringing together practitioners and attendees to learn simple yet effective holistic healing practices makes me long for the day when I can open my dream retreat center. One of tasteful, yet affordable style and holistic wellness practices reaching out to people of all income levels! One step at a time!

Cooking demo gone awry when the oven didn’t work! Roasting the chicken on the grill for the stock worked just fine!

Beautiful, gorgeous chock full of nutrients stock simmering on the cooktop! Stock recipe from the files of functional medicine practitioner, Chris Kresser

Everyone went home with a jar.

The borscht (made with the stock) ready to be blended (recipe also from the files of Chris Kresser).

Lunch was a gorgeous bowl of beet soup and a chicken salad. Both great options for cooking with the stock and leftover roasted chicken.

Sara brought tuning forks! Who knew vibration also gets the Qi moving!

We were so fortunate to have such a gorgeous setting.

I was impressed Patti could balance on a floating dock! Not hard lying down, but for the rest of the time? Wow!

Patti displays her southern heritage.

and the moon rises over the Mt. Tam foothills to end our day.

Thank you to my participants for attending The Healing Farm Stinson Beach Mini-Retreat! Stay tuned for an announcement regarding the first large scale Healing Farm retreat and the introduction of my new website and brand!
