Stacks Image 148

This 2-day retreat blends conscious breathing, yoga, live music, sound healing, and nature immersion. Enjoy nutritious farm-to-table meals, connect with like-minded souls, and nurture your well-being in this rustic setting. You’ll have time to hike and enjoy rare fruit, journal and reflect, co-create a Nature Mandala, share following group meditations, and cold plunge to deepen your connection to yourself and the natural world.

Your guides at the retreat are Matteo Pistono, teacher of meditation and conscious breathing, and Michelle Anise, musician and healing arts practitioner. Chef Ron McCord prepares the nutritional meals and your host is Ed Lewis, regenerative farmer on the land. Retreatants camp on the land with convenient access to showers and bathrooms.

Patagonia Cardiff the sponsor of the retreat and your retreat fee helps support Sea + Soil, a local non-profit, that receives financial proceeds from the event. Sea + Soil is a collective cultivating a regenerative earth as stewards of the land and sea.


Matteo Pistono, writer and teacher of meditation and conscious breathing, embarked on his spiritual journey over 30 years ago while living in Nepal and Tibet. Matteo holds a Masters degree in Indian Philosophy from the University of London. Informed by his study of Buddhism, Vedanta, and Hatha Yoga, extensive periods of solitary meditation, and pilgrimages across sacred Himalayan landscapes, Matteo offers an engaged approach to ancient wisdom traditions. His books include Breathe How You Want to Feel, Meditation, and In the Shadow of the Buddha, among others.

Michelle Anise is healing arts practitioner, musician, sound healer, songwriter, and music producer. Her offerings provide a transformational space for personal growth and spiritual connection with an intuitively creative twist. She is a founding facilitator of San Diego’s One Voice choir, the creator of the Mystic Path Oracle, and has published 4 Sound Healing & Meditation albums in collaboration with Hay House Publishing Company. Her original music can be found on Spotify and all other streaming platforms.
