The Flower Fields

Mar 1 - May 9, 2021

For more than sixty years, Mother Nature has transformed the rolling hills of North San Diego County into one of the most spectacular and coordinated displays of natural color and beauty anywhere in the world. The nearly fifty acres of Giant Tecolote Ranunculus flowers that make up the Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch in Carlsbad, California, are in bloom for approximately six to eight weeks each year - from early March through early May - literally bringing the famous fields back to life. This annual burst of color, which has become part of the area’s local heritage, also is one of nature’s official ways of announcing the arrival of spring here in Southern California.

TRANSFORM: Nidra Meditation and Sound Bath

Feb 6, 2021

Meditative Therapy is a technique of connecting with the natural state of mind. It is not eliminating thoughts, but noticing what comes up along the way.

Nidra Meditation drops you into a theta brain wave state in which the body is completely relaxed. This state of consciousness is similar to that of a dream state, promoting deep relaxation of our bones and muscles, lowering blood pressure and stress hormones, improving endocrine and immune function, regenerating neurons in the brain, and regenerating our cells.
