Rumi’s Caravan – A Benefit for The Center for Climate Protection

Join us in the Osmosis meditation garden for an unforgettable summer evening with fine wine, music, inspired poetry, and an artisan dinner.

Masks are required at this outdoor event to maximize safety.

The evening will begin with a premiere wine and hors d’oeuvre reception followed by a gourmet dinner created by food artist Isa.

The evening will be highlighted by Rumi’s Caravan, a Sonoma County tradition that invites guests to be lulled and inspired by ecstatic verse — some ancient, some contemporary – learned by heart, spoken with passion, and accompanied with improvisational music. Poet Kay Crista says, “What we want to do is welcome people to this oasis, it’s a place to slip out of the weariness of everyday living and just be nourished by the reminder of the deeper aspects of what is to be human and alive. We want to rekindle the wildness of the heart in a world culture where nature has been beaten into submission.”

And to top it all off, the evening will benefit The Climate Center, a nonprofit whose mission is to inspire, align, and mobilize action in response to the climate crisis. Working with business, government, youth, and the broader community to advance practical, science-based solutions for significant greenhouse gas emission reductions, The Climate Center makes it easier for people to address climate change and ensure that future generations can continue to live, work, play, and thrive on this extraordinary planet. They provided the impetus for Sonoma Clean Power which has grown to provide Community Choice Energy to over 5 million people in California, reduced greenhouse gas in Sonoma County by 11%, and save $62 million in local consumer electricity rates. All proceeds to benefit The Center For Climate Protection.

Caravan poets include Kay Crista, Larry Robinson, and Doug von Koss accompanied by guest poet Rebecca Evert. Accompanying musicians will be announced soon. Together they will celebrate the world’s cultural and spiritual traditions with the sublime power of performance poetry.

Home Care Rituals for Deep Sleep – Spa Vitality Retreat

deep sleep spa wellness workshop
Join us in this dreamy workshop where you will learn a variety of self-help tools for helping you to fall asleep and to sleep more deeply.

To fit everything into our busy lives, we often sacrifice sleep.

Adequate sleep is an essential component to a healthy lifestyle and can affect both mental and physical health. It is vital to our well-being!

  • Body and breath awareness practices
  • Herbs and essential oils to calm the mind
  • Acupressure points to help you sleep deeply
  • Meditation techniques to prepare for sleep
  • Self-massage techniques for deeper relaxation

This All Day Vitality Boosting Retreat includes a 75-min. Massage, Cedar Enzyme Footbath, Organic Lunch & Informative Self Care Presentation!
