About this trip

Join us for a 2 hour class from 3pm to 5pm in the Soquel village to learn how to be more aware of your surroundings and more present in your body. The class will include explanations and demonstrations on some basic self defense techniques, as well as an opportunity to practice them.


*trigger warning: topics of assault will be discussed and rough language will be used*


I have studied self defense for over a decade and believe that with a few basic techniques and an understanding of how to move through the world everyone can be a bit more safe and feel more empowered in there own body. I know such heavy subject matter can often be triggering and work hard to create a safe space for people to learn without judgment. We will begin the class with a brief meditation to ground ourselves in the present and there will be check-ins throughout the afternoon to make sure everyone feels safe and understands the material.

I had a great retreat in a beautiful location. The food was delicious served with a quiet respectful smile. The sauna, pool and outdoor shower added a plus to my experience.
What a marvelous experience, HeartArt at Dharma Camp! I marvel at just how much I did, learned, shared, enjoyed myself together with a group of people I'd only just met! From the initial, warm greeting by the organizers, replete with snacks and cozy introductions, the tone was set for a safe and sure exploration of understanding, experiencing and applying Buddhist Compassion to everyday life, through the medium of art. The leaders set the tone, making for a comfortable environment for us to have fun while we created art literally based on Jon Landaw's impactful Dharma teaching on Bodhicitta. We were touched and we touched one another's hearts, truly., We laughed and cried together, we listened and questioned and considered and shared -- and came together, each in her very own authentic way. What a marvelous experience, one that continues even now, days later, as I continue to read and write in the provided journal and to practice lessons learned. What's the most stars I can give? That number, plus two more, for the creators of this event.
