Meet at the Bechtel House
At this two-day immersive retreat, you’ll explore the vibrant spring landscapes of Pepperwood and rejuvenate yourself through hikes, yoga, and massage and stay overnight at our Bechtel House retreat cabin.
Saturday afternoon, we’ll embark on a hike to connect with nature led by Holland Gistelli, Education Program Coordinator and naturalist. Along the hike we’ll observe the various flora (blooming wildflowers!) and fauna (spring songbirds!) that call Pepperwood home, and enjoy refreshments overlooking 360 degree views of the region at Three Tree Hill. We’ll spend the late afternoon relaxing on the wraparound deck of the Bechtel House, with the option to enjoy an herbal spa treatment, art activity, or a massage with licensed massage therapist, Kate Sheehy (for an additional fee). The day concludes with a catered dinner, time to relax and enjoy the sunset, and a joyful campfire under the stars. On Sunday, we will greet the day with a nourishing yoga practice led by certified yoga instructor Sloane Shinn. After our morning yoga, a delicious brunch concludes our retreat.
Some of the weekend’s activities will be held in the field and will include hiking 1-3 miles at a slow pace. Bring a tent to sleep under the stars or reserve a bunk bed in the Bechtel House (for an additional fee). Saturday dinner and Sunday brunch are included, and you are welcome to bring your own favorite snacks and beverages.
