about

Pax Connex Spiritual Retreats

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.

Activating the Spirit: Foodie Tour Night

Sometimes when I meditate, I can have conversations with my Spirit. I have this voice inside my head, that's me, but so much better. There is a me, inside of me, that is so uncomplicated, it's almost maddening. She's wiser, has buckets of courage, funnier, laughs like a child that sees your boogers but won't tell you, patient, direct, mysterious - all this and yet, humble.

Conversations With Spirit: I have the best job EVER

Sometimes when I meditate, I can have conversations with my Spirit. I have this voice inside my head, that's me, but so much better. There is a me, inside of me, that is so uncomplicated, it's almost maddening. She's wiser, has buckets of courage, funnier, laughs like a child that sees your boogers but won't tell you, patient, direct, mysterious - all this and yet, humble.

The “Flow” State

In the past few years, I have learned how to surf, snowboard, and float on a OneWheel. With all three of these sports, people often say things like, "catch a wave," or "shredding the mountain," or "keep the stoke," which are various ways of saying something we all say, get in "the flow state," or in "the zone." What is this "flow state" or "zone?" Isn't this just colloquial ways of saying "connecting with Spirit?" How do we get there? What prevents us from getting there?
