About this trip

The second in the trifecta is LOVE


“And I said to my body, softly, ‘I want to be your friend.’ It took a long breath and replied, ‘I have waited my whole life for this.’ Nayyirah Waheed


In the second of the trifecta toward liberation, this retreat will explore the sometimes elusive practice of self-love as the necessary pathway toward spiritual awakening. 


This weekend we will use asana, meditation, pranayama, journal writing, and restorative yoga as self-care practices and opportunities to reflect on how love of self is the determining factor in our ability to love and care deeply for each other.  


Join me in exploring the many facets of love, compassion, and empathy, and let’s together work toward healing the wounds that have prevented you from a deeper, more intimate relationship with yourself. It is in the healing of these wounds, releasing emotional suppression, and tending to your own heart space that freedom and joy are truly attainable.  


This work will include:

  • Healing ourselves of disempowering beliefs systems
  • Understanding the mind/body connection and the physical and psychological effects of trauma 
  • Releasing emotional blockages 
  • Reclaiming personal power
  • Developing compassion and empathy 
  • Exploring the healing power of forgiveness for self and other

Cultivating love from within is the rejuvenating energy--creative and infinite--that can transform us beyond the body, beyond our thoughts, beyond even our own humanity, into the highest, most loving aspect of Self. Come home to this essence of being where compassion dwells, and peace will forever be known. 

COVID-19

We can barely wait to welcome you back for community, delicious vegan food, hiking, and – of course – Class!  We’ve cut our attendance by six people for each retreat to allow more space in the yoga room.


The health and safety of our guests, staff, and performers are paramount in these (still) uncertain times. To attend any retreat, we require that all guests provide proof of full vaccination against COVID-19. Our staff and performers will also follow this protocol, and we encourage you to get vaccinated if possible.


We must hold to our policy for the safety of all people vaccinated and unvaccinated that we require vaccination to attend. Until we know more and the variants have slowed down, we have to stick to this, but it does not mean that this will always be our policy in the future. We're taking things day by day right now.


We will not require that guests wear masks indoors (in bedrooms and yoga room), but we honor and respect each individual's need to feel safe while on the property. If you have any hesitation to join us for this retreat, we recommend you wait until one of our future retreats in 2023. 


Most beds in shared bedrooms have 3 feet between each bed. Yoga mats might be only 1-2 feet spaced out. We will keep windows and doors open during class to allow for proper circulation. Meals will be served outdoors.


We appreciate your cooperation and your support. Looking forward to celebrating our next chapter together safely! 💫

Freshly Prepared 100% Vegan Meals Daily

Ali Lafayette will be our private chef for the weekend, preparing delicious vegan and organic meals with fresh ingredients. 


Ali is currently working as a private chef and health-based retreat chef, specializing in simple, nutritious, and delicious food designed to nurture and energize clients undergoing trainings and other forms of self-optimization. 


Her specialties are accommodating and adapting for a multitude of dietary restrictions, allergies, and health concerns, including but not limited to; vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, sugar-free, celiac, low-acid, clean eating, whole-30, ketogenic, and Ayurvedic. 


Ali’s passion for food as a health and nutrition tool has led her to become a certified nutritionist, and she has several years of experience developing meal prep programs for clients suffering from auto-immune disorders and other food-related health issues. 


Ali’s personal food philosophy focuses on the idea that food is fuel and medicine for the body, but that healthy food can also be decadent and delicious. 


“Food should be Delicious: Good food can be an incredible sensory experience! Just because it's good for your body doesn't mean it has to be boring and bland. 


Food Should be Simple: Real ingredients, and not too many of them. Local and Seasonal; humane and organic. All things you can pronounce and recognize. 


Food Should be Healthy: Food is fuel and medicine for our body, it keeps us running at the top of our potential. Low to zero sugars, simple carbohydrates, and no processed chemical ingredients.”

Things to know

📍 Address to the property will be given the week before the retreat starts. 


👉  Substance-free retreat

A substance-free environment is one in which all guests agree to keep their space free from substances at all times. Substances are defined to include alcohol, cigarettes, other smoking materials, and illicit and illegal drugs.


👉  Close shared spaces

This is a very communal retreat with shared bedrooms and shared bathrooms. Some beds may only be 3 feet apart from each other. If for any reason, you do not feel safe being in such close quarters with other guests due to concerns about Covid-19,  it's best not to join this trip and wait until a time that feels best for you. We will be doing many more of these next year. 

Activities

On one of the afternoons, we will hike to a beautiful labyrinth overlooking the pacific ocean, where we will do an intention-setting meditation and ritual blessing.


There will be plenty of time between sessions to relax and connect with yourself, each other, and the land. Perched on 10 acres, atop a remote valley with beautiful views of the Santa Monica mountains, you can find yourself chilling in the jacuzzi or cedar sauna, swimming in the lap pool, or dunking in the cold plunge. There are also many places for quiet time like the sun patios or cozy up to the large living room fireplace in the 1920s Spanish Mission-style house. 


If you feel like an adventure on your own, there are gorgeous hiking trails nearby, and the Pacific Ocean is only 20 minutes away. Or take a drive into town where you can visit all the local shops and artisans as well as wellness services like acupuncture, massage, and facials. 

Cancellation Policy

Due to the exclusive offering of this retreat to Seane's mail list and the lead time to fill your spot. It makes it difficult for us to react to last-minute cancellations after the eblast has been sent out.

In addition, in the event of fires in Topanga or COVID-19, we may need to reschedule this retreat. If so, we will refund you for your full amount minus any losses we may incur due to unforeseen circumstances that are out of our control. It is in our best interest to refund you in this type of situation. We cannot be responsible for any losses with airfare, transportation, or any other additional costs incurred during the planning of your trip. 


🚨Travel insurance is STRONGLY advised to cover you for any unexpected circumstances. 


🚨There are no exceptions with our cancellation policy due to the contractual commitments

Absolutely amazing experience! The accommodations were simple and so comfortable it felt like home. The food was healthy and excellent, the staff professional and welcoming. The yoga was the most amazing experience. Seane is professional, intuitive, compassionate and so knolegeable about the whole of yoga. The best in my opinion.

The best retreat I’ve ever attended! Fabulous energy; food was Devine, location was sacred, the people were fabulous and the teacher is remarkable and wise beyond words! Beautiful yoga classes that were intelligent, fostered kindness to each individual in the room and left one feeling full! Thank you. Deepest bow to the organizing team and to Seane Corn!

This trip was amazing. It is just what we both needed. I will be unpacking my own self for months to come. I love Seane Corn’s classes. I appreciate her pushing me to reconsider what my limit is. I loved Ali’s food. And Jessica is always so welcoming and friendly to everyone. I am so thankful this retreat happened. I felt safe and comfortable the entire time.
