      About this trip

      Join me August 6-11 for a soul-stirring and inspired week of self-exploration and healing in the mountains of Topanga, CA! 


      Over six days and five nights, you’ll learn about Transformational Inner Work (TIW), which includes powerful personal growth and development tools to help you live a more authentic, spiritually fulfilling, and empowered life. 


      This will involve a commitment to radical introspection and a willingness to confront the aspects of yourself that keep you from your most authentic self and highest nature.


      Throughout the week, the tools of TIW will be integrated into ten unique, dynamic, and thought-provoking yoga classes. 


      You’ll use asana, meditation, processing work, reflection, journal writing, intention setting, ritual, and prayer to deepen your understanding of yourself and your relationship with the world around you. 


      Doing this work with your asana practice amplifies your potential for healing, emotional growth, and spiritual connection and uplifts your capacity for compassion, empathy, and love.


      It will also help you identify the shadow aspects of yourself, including your limited beliefs, attachments, traumas, and egoic identifications that may be holding you back, negatively influencing your perspective and choices, and causing you emotional pain and suffering.


      Between sessions, you’ll have time to relax and connect with yourself, each other, and the land. Soak in the hut tub, sweat in the sauna, get a massage, facial, or acupuncture, shop in local artisan stores, hike on trails, and/or swim in the ocean. 


      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. 


      The highlight of this week will be a special ritual practice at my yoga yurt, which overlooks the Pacific Ocean and has views of all of Los Angeles. 


      This place is so spectacular and utterly sacred to me and my family's hearts. It is our joy to share this space with you and create an opportunity to experience Southern California in such a treasured and special way.


      And, of course, vegan food is prepared fresh daily!


      Join me for the Yoga and TIW Retreat, embark on a path of self-discovery, rejuvenation, and transformation, and bask in the beauty and magic of Topanga!

      Freshly Prepared 100% Vegan Meals Daily

      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.


      👉  Like adult summer camp - We're all in it together!

      This is not a retreat center. The property is a private house on 9 acres with "glamping" style cabins and rooms throughout the property. Every room on the property will have shared bathrooms. Meals will be "family style," where we serve ourselves and assist the chef with rinsing our dishes and preparing them for sanitizing after meals. 


      👉  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. 

      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. 

      Because of this, we must enforce a FIRM cancellation policy. 


      Terms:

      👉 If you need to cancel more than 30 days before the start of the retreat, there will be a $500 processing fee (your deposit), and the remaining balance will be refunded to your card.


      👉 If you need to cancel 15-30 days before the start of the retreat, you will receive a 50% refund of the full cost of your spot.  


      👉 If you need to cancel 0-14 days before the start of the retreat, you will receive no refunds.


      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 

      we have with our vendors. Unfortunately, we are not able to credit towards future offerings or transfer amounts towards online classes. 


      🤎 We appreciate your understanding of our cancellation policies 🤎

      Getting to Topanga

      Getting to the property…

      The address is released the week before the retreat starts. 


      LAX Airport is approximately 25 miles from the property

      Burbank Airport is about 27 miles from the property. 


      The drive from each airport can take about 45min depending on traffic conditions. It is Los Angeles, where traffic can be at any time of the day. So please plan accordingly. 


      A car can be convenient while in Topanga for the week but unnecessary. There always seems to be the right number of people with vehicles willing to arrange for groups to go into town or on hikes. Many people arrange to carpool to and from the airport via our FB group. This is how a lot of friendships are made! 


      If you prefer more freedom and/or solitude while traveling, get a car. There will be lots of parking available on the property. 


      Cabs, Lyft, and Uber will all take you to the property. 


      We ask that guests do not arrive any earlier than 3pm. This is a request from the property manager. 


      There are many things to do in Topanga if you need to kill some time, and the property is a 10-minute drive from the main town. Once you register, you will receive a digital packet of things to do in the area. 


      Email jessica@seanecorn.com if you have questions about arranging your travel plans.


      On your way home…

      Going from the property to the airport can take longer, and we suggest giving yourself at least 1 hour - 1.5 hours for drive time to be safe. If you have a rental car, give yourself some extra time. 

      If you’re booking a pick-up, please schedule the car beforehand since a lot of car services do not pick up in that area. 


      The last class ends at 11am, and brunch is at 11:30am on Sunday. Check-out is at 12pm.

      Practicing with Seane at her retreat was such a gift and felt so nourishing for my body, mind, heart and soul. This was my second retreat in Topanga and it was simply the best, as always. I’ve practiced for many years and with many teachers but there’s something really special that happens with Seane. She is so nurturing, loving, caring and real which creates an experience that feels so safe and grounding. It is the ultimate release and reset…I feel renewed! Thank you Seane and Jess!
      By Caitlin W for The Yoga of Awakening Retreat on Sep 12, 2023
      Seanne's Chakra Immersion Retreat is a wonderful yoga retreat. As a teacher, Seanne is unparalleled; she tells stories and lectures with wit and wry humor, making the lessons seem both mystical and approachable at the same time. In leading class, her queueing is like a mother's embrace: protective, supportive, and always full of care. Jessica, Seanne's right-hand-woman, is on hand for any and all things, large and small, and makes the retreat a true escape from the mundanities of the world. The space is wonderful, with great amenities; in the heat, I especially recommend the sauna and cold plunge (counter-intuitive, but it works). Our group was wonderful, supportive and open; they taught me a lot. I was not surprised to learn that many of our group choose to come back time and time again. Finally, the food is delicious, always fresh, tasty, filling and nourishing. All in all, it's a week of of true cleansing; both spiritual and physical; I cannot recommend it highly enough.
