Aerial Hoop Workshops in the Redwoods ~ August 12-14, 2016

with Maia Adams and Stephanie Bailey

August 12-14, 2016

The Sequoia Retreat Center in Ben Lomond, California



“The redwoods, once seen, leave a mark or create a vision that stays with you always. No one has ever successfully painted or photographed a redwood tree. The feeling they produce is not transferable. From them comes silence and awe. It’s not only their unbelievable stature, nor the color which seems to shift and vary under your eyes, no, they are not like any trees we know, they are ambassadors from another time.”   – John Steinbeck

Give yourself a weekend away in nature.  Spend time in this beautiful space while refining your skills.

Go Well Beyond has partnered with Aerial Artique for this amazing weekend getaway!

“The history of Sequoia is a history of seasons, beauty, spirit, and truth.”

Join Maia Adams and Stephanie Bailey

The Sequoia Retreat Center land has been held sacred since 1949 — it is a place where love has been experienced, where pain has been transcended, and where hope has been born.  This is a place where the deepest meaning of life may be explored in an atmosphere of quiet and beauty.  The current stewards of the Sequoia are Diane and Scott Myers-Lipton.  They continue to cultivate the rich history of peace, unity and wellness.
