Friends Who Are Going
Event description


Join us for New Moon Yosemite - an all-inclusive retreat that brings an intimate group of 150 like-minded people to one of the most serene landscapes on earth to disconnect from our daily grind, be inspired while share restorative experiences, and build our tribe. Each new moon provides an opportunity for renewal of energy and purpose, and we will celebrate this cycle by creating a space of inspiration and growth, guided by a curated group of expert practitioners, healers, and leaders against the backdrop of Yosemite’s stunning natural beauty. You will emerge from New Moon revitalized and energized, joined to a tribe aligned behind the singular purpose of bringing out the best in ourselves, and in doing so, bringing out the best in humanity.

Festival tickets start at $400 and in addition to the incredible experiences include three days of food, lodging, and transportation between the retreat site and the park. Everything is taken care of!
