Wild Vessel: Unleash the Beauty and Balance Within

May 03 - 05, 2019 Begins in 2 weeks
with Elana Meta

Wild Vessel is an experience-based practice of connecting to the body and re-strengthening feminine energy in all people. It was created to harmonize relationship dynamics, build communities, and reshape future dialog between the genders. In this experience, we awaken our bodies though elemental alchemies of dance, intimate connections through tantric practice, and interpersonal relationship skills. We explore the balance between masculine and feminine energy, as well as witness and acknowledge the opposite sex in new ways.



We offer a rich and varied integral learning environment devoted to cultivating deep change in self and society.


Experience twenty-seven acres of Pacific coastline paradise.
