About this trip

Are you ready to hit the reset button and create some zen? Let’s create and celebrate gratitude by coming together as a community for this exciting retreat!

This stunning venue, Land of Medicine Buddha, rests within the redwoods, and is only minutes away from the Pacific Ocean, making it an energetic hot spot, and the perfect place to reflect, retreat and create.

Experience a weekend of harmony and bliss amongst the magical redwoods of the Santa Cruz Mountains in Soquel, California. Enjoy daily movement & meditation, feast on delicious vegetarian meals, stay in lovely accommodations, and explore the surrounding forests. Land of Medicine Buddha is a sacred, tranquil place with temples, statues, and hidden gems throughout the grounds.  The energy of this land is very special and powerful. Guests continue to return year after year to the serenity of this place.

Host Karen Adamski of ShamaMama.com will provide you with soothing and restorative meditation and sound healing.  Special guest Tom Walsh will guide you through Qigong movements. Karen will also be guiding you through how to paint your own personal and powerful Buddha.  Yep…you get to create a Buddha at the Land Of Medicine Buddha!  Plus, there will drumming amongst the redwoods….not to be missed!
