River's Bend Retreat CenterThe Navarro River runs through the Anderson Valley's majestic redwoods, sunny meadows and vineyards and then curves at River's Bend to create a still point for contemplation, ecological understanding and deep connection between land and people.
Take a dip in our swimming hole, find a quiet path through the woods, help tend the organic flower and vegetable garden and enjoy home-cooked, fresh-from-the garden meals in our dining room!
River's Bend is children-friendly and guests of all ages are welcome to feel at home in this special place for learning and sharing.
River's Bend is a retreat center for groups and individuals located on 50 acres of redwood forest near the small town of Philo in Mendocino County. Nestled among the redwoods adjoining Hendy Woods State Park, River's Bend is a place of natural beauty graced with sunny meadows and the flowing Navarro River.
Visitors may choose to hike or bike ride through the redwood trails, take a refreshing dip in the swimming hole, or visit the library or the magnificent organic garden filled with vegetables, fruits and flowers.

Join us for an empowering, transformative & rejuvenating weekend with Clarity Breathwork sessions, live sacred music, kirtan, light body meditations, dance and movement to bring yourself into fuller embodiment of who you really are.
Every breath we take is sacred, an opportunity to connect to our deepest essence. When we breathe fully and consciously we can heal our hearts, minds, bodies, and open to the Divine in everything.
Most of us don’t breathe fully. We hold the breath in and may have been holding it in since the first breath when the umbilical cord was cut too soon and we were swung upside down and spanked. Many of us have thoughts like: It’s not safe to be here, I’m not supported, Life is a struggle, People hurt me, I’m all alone, I can’t make it. These may be birth thoughts that can profoundly affect our life experience. These thoughts can be further imprinted by childhood and adult traumatic experiences. Level 1 explores pre & peri-natal psychology and the impact of birth, childhood traumas & negative core beliefs.
Experience the awesome healing power of breath to transform your life! Unravel limited beliefs, emotional patterns, physical blocks, and imprints from birth, childhood, and past experiences from the cells of your body. Use sacred chanting, movement, meditation, and breath to embody more fully who you are and LIVE IT. Join us for a weekend you’ll value the rest of your life!
Hundreds of people have taken this amazing weekend retreat with us from around the world with positive life changing effects! Is it your turn?
