A day to pause and reset
Enjoy nature and ocean breezes.
Open your body, heart, and mind.
Shift your perspective and gain clarity.
Allow the quiet beauty of the surroundings to help you listen.
Invest in yourself to sustain yourself
A healthy heart spends 2/3 of the cardiac cycle in diastole.
It feeds itself first,
through the coronaries,
when it relaxes.
Relax with us
Fill your soul, your heart, your lungs, and your belly.
Reflect and write.
Breathe, stretch, align, and ground.
Rest and rejuvenate.
Soak in the sights, sounds, smells, tastes, and feel of nature.
Rediscover meaning, purpose, and well-being.
Laugh and connect.
Includes 8 units CME.
Where is it?
Pie Ranch is the perfect setting to remember what sustainability means for ourselves and the Earth.
It is a welcoming, healing, inspiring coastal farm committed to respecting Indigenous practices and cultivating a healthy and just food system from seed to table.
It’s a place for “pie in the sky” visioning and transformational change named for its land in the shape of a slice of pie, AND they serve seasonal fruit pies
Pie Ranch’s values are in line with our own hopes for this retreat — to “reimagine, relearn restore, revegetate, revitalize, reconnect, regenerate, and repair.”
They, and we, hope to “create meaningful and measurable change toward sustainable communities.”
