The beach in Neskowin

The beach in Neskowin

(p.s. This event always sells out)

Held 5 minutes from Neskowin Beach on an organic farm, we will be gathering for 3 days and 3 nights with a shared intention: to open to what is. With shared meals, residential living, excursions to the beach, campfire songs, hot tubs, and a beautiful Yoga Temple, this Solsara Immersion will surely be deeply nourishing, fun, and exquisitely unfolding in each moment.

Come gather with community and nature to remember, once again, what it means to be human.

The Venue

Nestled in the beautiful Neskowin Valley on an organic farm and only a 5-minute drive from the beach, this very special retreat center offers 4 different options for onsite lodging; a well-furnished cottage, a renovated school bus, camping, simple lodging in the library, and floor space in the yoga studio. Included on the property are an outdoor shower, an outdoor kitchen, and an outhouse, in addition to an indoor bathroom facility within the yoga studio.


Organic, vegetarian meals and snacks will be prepared daily by the lovely and scrumptiously talented, Hollis Baley for the 3rd year in a row! Meals include dinner on Thursday, breakfast and lunch on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, as well as bountiful snacks in the morning and evening. Gluten-free and vegan options will always be available. Freshwater and hot tea will be available during the course. We do not provide caffeine or dinner. We find that often times participates are satiated with a late lunch and evening snack. You are welcome to bring additional food if you think you may prefer to have an evening meal.

To Register

Complete and submit the Registration Form and pay the deposit. Your registration will be confirmed after we receive these. We often have more applicants than available spaces, so we cannot guarantee a space for you in a particular immersion. Once an immersion is full, we will initiate a waiting list and you can be on standby.

For people with extremely limited funds, we also offer a payment plan and a limited number of scholarships. Click here to apply for a scholarship.
