Our mission is to reconnect you to Spirit through immersion with nature, creative activities & somatic movement.
Pax is the latin root for “peace,” while “connex,” embodies connections. The most important connection you can have is with yourself, also known as your spirit or your soul. It is with this intention that we have built our retreats.
Specially designed retreats to help you reconnect with your Spirit. Our home base is set on 5 acres in the mountains of Santa Cruz. Surrounded by the Redwood forest, this magical oasis will cradle you as we re-introduce you to Mother Earth. The California Redwoods are known as the tallest trees on Earth. Redwood trees symbolize vitality and longevity, as they can grow to 1,000 years old, withstanding, flood, fire, drought, and almost any natural disaster that plagues our forests today. Amidst these majestic giants, the noise and stressors of the city will melt away, leaving you on another level of tranquility and peace, with which to begin, again, your spiritual journey.
All of our retreats include some sort of nature activities, like guided hikes in nature, mushroom foraging, or day trips to environmental centers to learn about plants, flora and local wild life. Depending on the retreat you choose, other activities may include adventure excursions like skydiving, zip lining in the Redwood tree tops, mountain biking in amazing nature trails) or creative classes (like pottery, making clay creatures, painting, drawing, sketching, printing, writing.) or somatic movement classes (like dance, yoga, tai-chi.) All retreats will include some sort of musical integration (no musical background needed!). We greatly encourage journaling, sharing and community – we will introduce you to new ways to establish those practices into your daily life. Join us to begin or continue your Spirit journey.
