The Lotus Feed Retreat Center at Taylor Maid Farms rests on 108 acres of vital Sonoma coast nature. Its diverse landscape provides the most exquisite and magical experience of raw and cultivated beauty. From the redwood, fir and oak forests, to our thoughtfully designed circle gardens. Ocean view ridge-tops overlook our colorful and hidden creek beds; The Lotus Feed Retreat Center is blessed with a full palette of wonder.
Start your day with a pond side meditation and spend your day meandering through the medicinal herb gardens. Hike trails through fern groves or meander along the fresh water springs. Cultivate a relationship with the earth and lend a hand in the organic gardens harvesting the fruits and labor of the land to feast for the Farm To Table Communal Feast. End your day with a sunset yoga practice under the passion flower canopy and the rest of you evening can be spent star gazing by the fire pit.
The Lotus Feed has thoughtfully crafted the native land into a perfect classroom to dive into wild edibles and medicinals. The cultivated gardens and structures present learning experiences in permaculture and the peace and energy of the land provide a backdrop for transformation, learning and evolution. Farm to table meals will be harvested from the stunning circle garden and prepared in the outdoor pizza oven imported from Italy.
Off-site wine tastings are part of this experience.
This is an all levels yoga retreat.

YOUR ACCOMMODATION OPTIONS
The retreat center is designed to promote intimacy with nature while also providing space for rest and relaxation in comfort. Lodging ranges from private yurts (canvas covered wood-framed structures) with 800 thread count organic sheets and equipped with vintage clawfoot bathtubs, to glamping (glamour-camping) in a tent, to camping in a teepee. While The Lotus Feed is truly a farm that embraces it's wild surroundings, living side by side, with bugs, animals, and fluctuating weather patterns, it is designed for a wide range of budgets and levels of comfort.
The Lotus Feed features yurts, yomes, bell tents, and even a teepee, with beds ranging from twins to doubles - all of which can be seen below. Most of the accommodations share tow centralized bathroom facilities with electricity and running water. One of the most unique experiences at the Lotus Feed are the outdoor showers, built around a gorgeous California Bay tree. Due to the nature of the dwellings, accommodations are subject to change due to constant improvements and responses to changing weather conditions.
