Fall is a time of reflection and renewal. It’s a time to go inward and reconnect with yourself and your inner source of healing.

Join me in this weekend get-away retreat at Oz Farm - an eco-friendly farm and retreat space nestled in the hills above Point Arena- to reset, relax, and recharge. Bring yourself back into balance with daily yoga, nourishing farm-to-table meals, and time in nature alone or with community.

Days will start with quiet meditations and end talking around the bonfire or in the wood fueled hot tub.

In between, we will be practicing yoga, exploring nature, and enjoying amazing food. Our delicious menu will be healthy and based on what's in season at the farm.

In addition to feeling good, regular Ayurvedic massage detoxifies the body’s tissues, increases circulation, calms the mind, and enhances immune function. Receiving Abhyanga with warm, organic, herbal massage oil is a deeply healing and enjoyable practice that slows the aging process by rejuvenating the nervous system.

Shirodhara:
Shirodhara is a continuous stream of warm oil over the forehead and third eye. It works primarily on the mental layer or "manomaya kosha" as it is known in Ayurveda. It is here, at this level, that the mind holds on to past impressions that create imbalanced desires and habitual patterns of behavior. It is believed that these impressions are held captive in the limbic system of the emotional cortex of the brain. It has been used to treat a variety of conditions including: migraines and headaches, eye diseases, sinusitis, allergic rhinitis, graying of hair, neurological disorders, memory loss, insomnia, hearing impairment, tinnitus, depression, anxiety, vertigo, & Ménière's disease.

Some of the Benefits of Shirodhara: Achieves an instant state of calm and rejuvenation. It has a balancing effect on the deepest recesses of the mind, stimulating the endocrine system, such as the pituitary and pineal glands (for hormonal imbalance). Stimulates neurotransmitters, effectively helping to combat depression, addiction and emotional insecurity while decreasing stress related hormones within the body. Synchronizes alpha brain waves, enhance blood circulation to the brain, improve mental clarity and help to generally release deeply trapped toxins. Is a powerful treatment for relieving mental stress and nervous tension.

Location and directions

OZ Farm is located 130 miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge in coastal Mendocino County. 

You can get to Oz Farm by taking either the inland route via the Anderson Valley or the coastal route. Either way, it takes about three hours to drive there from the Golden Gate Bridge. 

For a wonderful variety of scenery, consider coming one way and returning another. 

Oz_Map.jpg

Inland route

Take Highway 101 North to Cloverdale (an hour and a half drive from the Golden Gate Bridge). 

Take the northernmost Cloverdale exit marked “128 West, Fort Bragg, Mendocino” and at the end of the exit ramp, turn left. Take right at sign for Highway 128 WEST and continue to Boonville (45 minutes to Boonville from Cloverdale). [If you're coming from Ukiah and points north, take 101 South to the Boonville-Ukiah Road exit, Highway 253. Follow 253 to the end where you take a right on Highway 128 to Boonville.] 

Drive through Boonville. Just as you exit the north end of town, turn left onto MOUNTAIN VIEW ROAD. Consecutive signs before the turn say: “Airport” and “Point Arena.” IMPORTANT! Check your odometer when you make this turn: the Oz Farm driveway is 23 miles from the left turn onto Mountain View Road. This leg of the trip takes 45 minutes on a steep and winding road. 

After about 20 miles, Mountain View Road heads steeply downhill and emerges from the forest slightly more than one mile above the Oz Farm driveway. (From the top of this hill on a clear day, there is an immense view of the Pacific Ocean with the Point Arena Lighthouse and the Garcia River estuary straight ahead.) As you come down the hill, you will pass through a farm with a duck pond on the left side of the road and residences on the right. Keep an eye out for the Oz Farm driveway on the left about .8-mile beyond this farm 41601 Mountain View Rd.  Mile Marker 1.65 is on the right, almost directly across from our driveway marked with a small sign that says “Oz Farm”. Turn left onto the driveway (a gravel road) and pass across an open field (you'll see our wind generator on the right), then down through redwoods where you'll emerge in the valley near the Community House. Park in the parking area. 

Costal route 

This route, which assumes you're coming from the San Francisco Bay area, combines freeway and smaller roads to be roughly equivalent in time to the inland route above if you're starting at the Golden Gate Bridge. Getting onto Highway 1 further south than indicated can add more time but you experience more of Highway 1's famous scenery. 

Take Highway 101 North to Petaluma. Take EAST WASHINGTON ST. Exit; turn left at end of exit ramp and back over highway. Continue west on East Washington through downtown Petaluma. East Washington St. becomes Washington St., then Bodega Avenue as you head out of town. This road becomes Petaluma-Valley Ford Road near the town of Two Rock, then merges with Highway 1 a couple of miles east of Valley Ford. Follow Highway 1 through Bodega, Jenner, Stewart's Point, Gualala, and Point Arena. Four miles north of Point Arena – after crossing the Garcia River – turn right onto MOUNTAIN VIEW ROAD to the Oz Farm driveway 1.65 miles east. The driveway (a gravel road) is on your right and marked with a small sign that says “Oz Farm”. Follow driveway across an open field, down through redwoods where you'll emerge in the valley near the Community House. Park in the parking area.

 
 

About the OZ farm

Oz Farm is hidden in a quiet, private valley on one of the most pristine stretches of the scenic Mendocino County coast, 130 miles north of San Francisco.

Bordered with redwood forest, and with the Garcia River running through its 240 acres, Oz Farm is blessed with tranquility, fresh air and clear water. Oz Farm is 'off-the-grid', using solar and wind power for all its operations.

For over 50 years, Oz has changed and grown from a commune to an organic farm and retreat facility. The farm changed ownership in March of 2015, which has brought new life, fresh energy and a passion to grow not only as a business but as a community too!
