Wildwood RetreatTo many who visit the property, Wildwood is a place that simply feels right; a place that was meant to be. A true home.
It is a big beautiful place infused with the ineffable. Big and beautiful enough, it would seem, to cradle the profound.
Through modern history, Wildwood’s redwood forest has been storied with fortuitous happenstance and inexplicable turns of fate. The ground itself, in fact, can feel fated – as if the land and the work that is done on the land inform each other, complement each other. Exist for each other.
Not so poetic, however, is the land’s origins – as a chicken ranch. “Before the ecstasy, the laundry,” to paraphrase the Zen saying. Given the isolation and attendant hardships the property can yet present, the phrase is as apt today as it was decades ago.

'Discover your Purpose' Workshop
Led by Happiness and Life Coach, Sunny Grosso
Connect with what brings you meaning and commit to your best self for the Summer Solstice in this intimate two-hour workshop.
Following our purpose is our most direct path to sustainable happiness. Yet many of us don't know what the heck it is. It's not taught in schools and it's not exactly dinner party conversation. This Summer Solstice we will connect, introspect and celebrate together as we uncover our purpose through a few simple exercises. We'll discuss the role of purpose in our long term happiness, get a sense of where it is pointing us, where we are aligned, or not, and define next steps to create more sustainable happiness this summer… and in our life!
Rejuvenate and recharge, create more balance in your life, trust your intuition, and create your dream life!
