Acorns to Oaks: Weekend Retreat for Young Leaders

Katia Sol & Christopher Kuntzsch

Event Details

  • Date:
  • Venue: Audubon Canyon Ranch
    4900 Shoreline Highway 1, Stinson Beach, CA, 94970, United States
  • Venue: Audubon Canyon Ranch
  • Cost: Sliding Scale $100-$150

This unique weekend gathering is especially designed to support young leaders and change-makers (ages 20-35) seeking to BE a response to the needs and opportunities of this time and to serve as catalysts for change for a thriving future. Together we will ask, “What are the unique gifts we bring as young adults? How can we contribute most effectively in this time? What do we need to thrive and serve amongst uncertainty and turmoil? Where do we source and anchor ourselves in order to take most effective action?”

Time in circle, small groups, and individual reflection will be interwoven with reconnective practices on the land, music, and gathering by the fire. Throughout, we will explore the interplay between being and doing, self and the collective, and urgency and slowing down, as we gather renewed perspective, insights, and support for the deepest stirrings of our hearts.

What to Bring: Sleeping bag, tent (optional, Audubon Canyon Ranch also has indoor bunk beds), clothes for all kinds of weather and activities (i.e., hiking and swimming), journal, water bottle, and your breakfast and lunch for the weekend. Fri and Sat dinners will be provided.

Cancellations: No refunds for cancellations made 7 days or less before the event date. Prior to 7 days before the event, there is a $25 processing fee per ticket for cancellations.
