Pax is the latin root for “peace,” while “connex,” embodies connections. The most important connection we can have is the one we have with ourselves. Our true self, is known as Spirit. Without a deep connection with Spirit, there is no way to evolve beyond the surface. If you’ve ever felt stuck, on a never-ending loop, alone in this world, or asked – “is this it?” We want you to know, there is more. Self-exploration is the final frontier. You don’t have to go any further than within.
Our retreat center is cradled by Mother Nature. The Santa Cruz Mountains, the Redwood forest, fresh air and California sun, work together to create an environment that will insulate you from the chaos of today’s hectic lifestyles. We provide the container and the support you need to facilitate the experience your Spirit longs for.
Our specially designed retreats include nature immersion activities, like guided hikes with our resident naturalist, mushroom foraging, or day trips to learn about plants, flora and local wild life. Depending on the retreat you choose, other activities may include adventure excursions like skydiving, zip lining in the Redwood tree tops, mountain biking in amazing nature trails or classes in creativity (like pottery, making clay creatures, painting, drawing, sketching, printing, writing) or somatic movement (such as dance, yoga, tai-chi.). All retreats include some sort of musical integration (no musical background needed!). We greatly encourage journaling, sharing and community. We will introduce you to new ways to establish these practices in your daily life. Join us to begin or continue your Spirit’s journey.
