Description

The Space

A serene and safe space close to downtown Joshua Tree (2mi), located on a dirt road about 1/2mi from pavement. This place and rural neighborhood is special because of a very loving and peaceful vibration, yoga and healing opportunities, low cost, convenience to so many wonderful places and happenings and friendliness to all--human and animal.

There are several options from a large private room with its own entrance to a small bedroom and a cozy loft, shared with a cat. Also, breakfast may be added, or you may cook for yourself if you prefer. It's dog and RV friendly. Tent space is also available. There are daily yoga classes in the dome and private energy healing/integrative bodywork sessions if desired.

Prices vary: $25/night in the loft and little bedroom, $20/night for an RV (your own, I just offer the space), a tent, or an outdoor bed open to the skies, and $60 for the big bedroom. The dome may be rented with special arrangements made in advance for an activity as it is used to SOMA yoga classes 6 days a week and various local meetings and events. There is both an indoor full bath and a bathhouse with an outside shower that is raved about by some. This is semi-rustic: no microwave or dishwasher, but there is a washing machine, solar dryer (i.e., clothesline that leaves a fresh desert air smell), air-conditioner/heater in big bedroom, swamp cooler or wood stove and heaters for the rest of the house. Kitchen and bath is usually shared. Free Wi-fi service is available. Sorry, no TV but there is a DVD player/monitor.

People who visit and stay for a retreat say they feel so welcome, peaceful, and healed in this sacred, loving space on 1.25 acres.

We are close to the downtown art and music scene, a couple of theaters, great dinner and music club venues, (Pappy and Harriett's and Willie Boy's, both about a 30 min. drive. ) Also it's very close to the Bhakti Fest and Joshua Tree Music Festivals and about 10 miles to Joshua Tree National Park entrances on Park Ave or at Indian Cove. Morongo Natural Preserve, 29 Palms Marine Base, Pioneer Town, Gubler's Orchids, The Integratron are all nearby. Not as close, but not too far (45min-1.5 hours) is the Date Festival, Coachella Music Festival, and the Palm Springs International Film Festival. Morongo Basin Transit Authority covers the Morongo Basin east (29 Palms) to west--Joshua Tree, Yucca Valley, Morongo Valley and Palm Springs. There are lots of great restaurants too!

My neighborhood is very safe and I am personal friends with all my neighbors. We watch out for each other and help each other out. My closest ones and I are doing permaculture plans so we can live sustainably and regeneratively some day. It's exciting. My oldest neighbor is a close friend and is 95. The youngest is 3. We have fun.

Once you get downtown, 2 miles away, there are buses that go throughout the basin and to Palm Springs. I can sometimes give rides to town for those in need. There is plenty of parking here. I'm about 50-60 minutes from the Palm Springs airport.

SPECIAL: You can arrange to stay for a week or two and have a healing retreat which includes 6 SOMA yoga classes a week, and 3 private healing sessions, as well as simple, wholesome organic meals once or twice a day.
I have lots of training and experience in psychology, somatic learning, EFT and more.

The night sky during new moon times is awesome. We keep outdoor lights off around here to preserve the quality of the night sky. I do have an outdoor bed on a slab that some people like to use now too.

Guest Access

Guests have access to the kitchen/living area, yard, garden, meditation areas, bathhouse with outdoor shower, and dome for SOMA yoga classes, a private session, or special events.


Interaction with Guests

My interaction with guests depends on what they want; some I get to know well and some I barely see and only talk to them upon arrival. This is guided by people's needs.

The Neighborhood

My neighborhood is very safe and I am personal friends with all my neighbors. We watch out for each other and help each other out. My closest ones and I are doing permaculture plans so we can live sustainably some day. It's exciting. My oldest neighbor is a close friend and is 96. The youngest is 3. We have fun.

Getting Around

We are 2 miles from downtown and there is a bus that goes through the whole Morongo Valley and down to Palm Springs. Sometimes I give rides into town or pick someone up in town. Taxis are available too. Walking to town is easy.
There's plenty of parking on my property; please pull up behind the left side of the dome.

Other Things to Note

SPECIAL DEAL: You can arrange to stay for a week or two and have a healing retreat which includes 4 SOMA yoga classes a week, and 3 private healing sessions, as well as simple, wholesome organic meals once or twice a day.
I have lots of training and experience in psychology, somatic learning, EFT and more.

AWESOME: The night sky during new moons is a big attraction. We keep outdoor lights off to preserve the quality of the night sky. I do have an outdoor bed on a slab that some people like to use in good weather and is perfect for stargazing.
