Every woman who heals herself,

heals all the women who came before her

and all the women who come after her.


The Lotus Feed is located in the quaint little town of Occidental, CA (about 1 hour and 30 minutes north of San Francisco on the northern coast of California).  It’s landscape serves for an enchanted wellness getaway. The peace and energy of the land provide a backdrop for transformation, learning and evolution.

The weekend will be an offering of total healing with 1-2 yoga and meditation classes each day as well as time to gather in circle for healing rituals. We will also indulge in a medicine making class.
(Massage is available upon request)

There will be plenty of free time to explore the spring fed pond, wander the organic gardens, seeing smelling and tasting the bounty from their fertile soil, meditate on the outdoor yoga deck, or take  a walk in the redwood, fir and oak forest.

All to promote inner healing and transformation.

The food is absolutely amazing!

A huge part of this retreat experience is the food. The food is gluten free, dairy free, refined sugar free and vegetarian.  It is clean and pure and you are able to nourish your body in such a way that healing occurs naturally.  

The Lotus Feed create a unique seed to service experience.  Seed to service means that the seeds are planted and grown in their beautiful garden.  It is harvested the week before we arrived and cooked just for us. It is local, highly nutritional and made with so much love that your body will cleanse naturally.  

All to promote inner healing and transformation.

“Autumn is the time when the cycle that began in the spring, reaches completion. The fruit is harvested, things are cleared away, so that space can be made for a new beginning. It is important in this season to watch your balances and to give yourself time for settlement and reflection. You naturally go through a process of clearing out and it is wise not to make any important decisions.”

-Petra Ummenthun
