Astronomy, Astrology, and Asana

An Astrology & Stargazing Retreat in the Sequoias with Julien Elizabeth and Meaghan Skye

February 20-23, 2020 (Thu-Sun)

$860 - $1390

About The Retreat

Explore the stories of the stars on a rejuvenating weekend beneath some of California’s darkest skies and wisest trees! 

 

Astrology, astronomy, stargazing and storytelling are woven together with yoga to create an experiential and community-based learning environment within the peaceful mountains and rivers of Sequoia National Park. 

 

We gather over a long New Moon weekend to link the studies of astrology and astronomy while resting at the picturesque Buckeye Tree Lodge alongside the Kaweah River. Together we’ll practice daily yoga at The Canopy Studio, explore Sequoia National Park, gaze at the stars each night, share their ancient language and feast fireside as a group in our River Lodge.

 

Our weekend retreat is open to all - no yoga, astronomy or astrology experience is required. Come with an open mind and an open heart and expect fresh insights, fun adventure and a community of new friends.
