SPRING EQUINOX 2023
Join us for the Spring Equinox Campout, the first campout of the yearly cycle in our series of four seasonal campouts every equinox and solstice. See the full year's seasonal campout dates at bottom.
Join us for 4 days and 3 nights of connection, expression, and movement in the beautiful Santa Cruz Mountains! Our Spring Equinox Campout is all about creativity, expression, and life bursting forth from a long period of rest. There will be an emphasis on art and art making, embodiment, and connection to prana/chi/lifeforce energy. Enjoy dance journeys, yoga/qi gong, meditation, authentic movement, contact improv, visual arts, hiking, nature immersion and plenty of play time each day to nourish your mind, body, and soul.

SPRING EQUINOX CAMPOUT
An extended weekend of community, nature, and celebration of life at Skyview overlooking the Monterey Bay. We will get playful and creative as we enter the spring season together and enjoy this time of new growth, buds, and blossoms in the Northern Hemisphere. This will be a sweetly held container blending a variety of offerings from our DJs and facilitators (see schedule below).
This campout includes simple, organic, vegetarian meals (vegan/gf options) which are provided with love and care to nourish your body. As for sleeping, there are both spaces to pitch a tent or car/van camp. There will also be a large heated group tent for some of the classes and activities that will also be available for anyone to roll out their sleeping bag. And yes there's a hot tub, two outdoor hot showers, and two composting toilets.

Much of the retreat will happen outdoors, but there will be indoor (large, heated tent) dancing and classes...especially if it's raining. Being fully at choice, you can decide what you are willing to participate in (and what you are not) at any time during the retreat.
