This retreat will be held at the natural and serene Wilbur Hot Springs in Northern California, USA. The venue is a two-hour drive north of San Francisco, in the heart of a 1800-acre nature preserve. The healing and naturally occurring mineral waters and beautiful land at Wilbur Hot Springs offer a unique opportunity to slow down, quiet the mind, reflect and reconnect with nature and your deeper self.
Wilbur's nature preserve includes peaceful valleys, panoramic ridges, and open meadows. Connect with nature through hiking, running, mountain biking, bird-watching and incredible stargazing at night. Wilbur's geothermal water contains three ounces of dissolved minerals per gallon and is entirely undiluted, untreated, and unheated, which is rare in North America.
The average temperatures of the spring are 98, 105, and 109 degrees Fahrenheit. The minerals in the waters have positive therapeutic effects on skin diseases, asthma, neuralgia, arteriosclerosis, rheumatism and shoulder, neck, and wrist pains, pain relief, and depression, as well as detoxifying and mucolytic effects. The minerals present are sulfur, silica, and metaboric acid. The unique element of the geothermal water is lithium, which promotes a deeper state of relaxation.
All meals will be beautifully prepared and cooked by the wonderful traveling cook and food maven, Keri Keifer. Keri believes that the best food is slow-cooked, love-imbued, rich in nutrients and texturally and colorfully vibrant. Her cooking style reflects the myriad experiences she has had in alchemy thus far such as a university education in chemistry, formal training from Tante Marie's Cooking School in San Francisco, cultivating crops on organic farms, adventuring into herbalism, and tending to fermented curiosities.
She uses seasonality, locality, diversity, and beauty as her north stars. Each menu she creates reflects the bounty and breadth of the local foodshed at a specific moment in time. It is her intention as a cook to not only nourish the body but also to reconnect the spirit to the land and its cycles.
