The Lotus Feed Retreat Center & Farm
The Lotus Feed retreat center at Taylor Maid Farms rests on 108 acres of vital Sonoma coast nature. Its diverse landscape provides an exquisite and magical experience of both raw and cultivated beauty. The center features an outdoor yoga deck overlooking the coastline, an indoor Bindu yoga yurt and gathering space, an 80 foot communal dining table, a pond, and gardens. From our redwood, fir and oak forests, to our thoughtfully designed gardens, The Lotus Feed Retreat Center is blessed with a full palette of wonder.
Start your day with a pond side meditation and spend your day meandering through the medicinal herb gardens. Hike the trails through fern groves and cool off with a dip in the fresh water springs. Cultivate a relationship with the earth and lend a hand in the organic gardens harvesting fruits and veggies. Move, dance and flow under the passion flower canopy on the outdoor yoga deck. Finally, come together and feast at the 80 foot communal table, enjoying a farm fresh organic meal, made with love. To wind down your perfect day, join your friends at the campfire for ritual, music, and stars.
The farm is the perfect place to learn more about herbs and how to use plants for home cooking, crafting, and homemade bath products. We will be mixing up our own blend of infused olive oils and making signature bath / beauty products with essential oils.
