Sister Sciences - a weekend women's retreat in the red woods
Join Tulsi, Sera and Khristine for a weekend of nourishment, nature, learning, and community. The magic of these three women and what they bring to the table is deeply rooted in the ancient teachings from India, with over 60 years of collective teaching experience and in the most beautiful and grounding environment. Land of the Medicine Buddha is like stepping into another place -- it is a Buddhist monastery, so you will see monks walking around the grounds in the Santa Cruz redwoods with big prayer wheels, temples and so much intention. We are so excited to collaborate together with yoga, Vedic astrology and Ayurveda - the sister sciences!
Ayurveda suggests that one of the most important transitions to engage in thoughtfully, is from summer to fall. Allow us to assist you using the sister sciences of yoga, Ayurveda and Vedic astrology to bring you into alignment with your true nature, autumn and a deep sense of community and sisterhood. Enjoy three Yoga asana practices, Ayurveda kitchen witchery, a New Moon circle, and learn how to read your Vedic astrology chart. Make space for yourself with a weekend in the Santa Cruz mountains.
